This block, called Mai Tai Surprise, is a Bonnie Hunter pattern. It was posted on her Addicted to Scraps column in October of 2012. I also think she used it as the quilt pattern for one of the quilting cruises she hosted at about the same time. I did change out the color placement just a bit, and made monochromatic blocks instead of the scrappy ones she showed, but I really do love the effect. The stars have partial seams, which do take a bit of concentration, but the effect is totally worth in my opinion. Anyway, mine is called Mai Tai Sunrise and I really love how it is coming together.
So now I'd better do the normal home after a trip things, like unpacking and laundry. After that though, I'll whip up just a few more stars and get this guy all ready to sew together. Such a nice way to jump start the weekend!
