An asterisk is from a word root meaning star. When used in writing, it is often a reference indicating that something has been omitted or requires more information or context. I often tell my kids not to worry too much about their standardized test scores right now because everything we do this year will have an asterisk by it. To understand why their AP scores were strangely low for this year, the asterisk would go with a footnote to explain that we are all learning in a hybrid environment during a pandemic, and the results might not be consistent with their usual performance. I think the movie profits will all need and asterisk this year because most of the theaters were closed for so long. I hear they are open now, but I'll keep enjoying new releases on HBO max for now. There is an aster flower, asteroids in the sky, and the word disaster is derived from the same word root. It refers to an unfavorable aspect of a planet or star.
For the oversized ready for trimming version, start with:
- 1 - 7 inch square of background fabric
- 2 - 1.25 by about 10 inch strips of blue
- 2 - 1.25 by about 8 inch strips of blue.
The exact lengths of the blue strips are not important, as long as they are a bit longer than the background strips, the rest is all going to be trimmed away at the end.
Tada! Here is your finished block. Make 6 of these and sew them into a strip with a 6.5 by 1.5 inch strip of background fabric between each block.
There are so many ways to work on variations of a theme with this block. It is easy to make them larger or smaller of course, but you could also just use wider or narrower strips. I think it would look great with solids in the diagonal and various fun prints in the horizontal and vertical strips. Wonky blocks would be lots of fun with the same idea as well, just cutting on slightly different angles would give a nice fun feel to the finished quilt.
Kathy did an entire post with the asterisk quilts she has made over the years.
