Shining Star Quilt Block

It's May already and the end of school is right around the corner--and for many, that means graduation. 

My May Quilt Block Mania block is called Shining Star - because that's why graduates are. What's fun is that this block isn't only about graduation--it's fun all on its own! 

The magic really happens when you start putting blocks together. 

Here's what four blocks look like:

And 16 blocks:

So fun, right?! 
The shading is key! 

The tutorial for making this block is on my subscribers only page - if you receive my newsletter, you'll find the link in the latest email. If you don't yet, you can subscribe to the newsletter in the right hand sidebar and you'll receive an introduction email with the link. I hope you enjoy making it!
