do.good stitches August

It's my month as Queen Bee for my do.good stitches Nurture circle. 

I've always wanted to make a red & white quilt, so this month is the time for it! I'm going for a sampler style quilt with star blocks. All background fabric needs to be solid white (Kona White, Bella 097, etc.). I'm not picky, as long as it's quilting quality and true white. I'm fine with any solid or tone on tone red.

Because it's a sampler style, any star blocks will do-they just need to be 12.5" unfinished. Please make two different stars. I've included several sample star block patterns here, but feel free to use any star block.

My blocks:

Ohio star

Double star 

Here are a few star blocks you're welcome to use. Or feel free to find your own, as long as they end up 12.5" unfinished and have a white background! 

Happy star making!
