Just One Star and a Broken Heart

I was inspired by a recent Covered Porches post to join in and make a quilt block for the quilts being made for soldiers.  You can get the pattern to make one too for the Just One Star challenge that Moda is holding. Moda needs to receive them before May 1st.  I made mine out of scraps I had in my stash...and in looking for what to use became inspired to clear out a draw of fat quarters and scraps working them into either the 'scraps to be cut box'...see previous post :-) or into my wall cupboard that has the fabric sorted by colors.  Reorganization and clearing out is always a good thing.
This Psalms block was actually finished about a week ago but the pressing was not attempted and the photo not taken until today. I'm not showing the back :-) but it came out better than I first hoped. Pressing these blocks still has a ways to go on the learning curve.
This block is called Broken Heart and is for Psalm 34
I sought the Lord, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them. The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Ps 34:4,7,18

Elinor went up to check out the beautiful blue sky.  She is a little camera shy but held her spot for just long enough.

Haven't started a pieced scrap quilt yet because I got distracted by this at Log Cabin Quilter.  I now have it mostly stitched down...had to move the pocket and still need to re-do the carrot.


  1. Wonderful blocks, Loris! I love the Psalm block. What pattern is that from? It's awesome. The bunny is so darlin'! :-D I'm not a bunny gal, but your fabric choices make it very appealing!

  2. I've never seen anything like the Broken Heart block before; looks like it was a challenge to do. (but done very nicely as always) Are you sure Elinor is checking out the blue sky and not bird hunting? She's looking pretty intent at something in the first picture. LOL

  3. Isn't blog-world grand? So much inspiration out there to keep us always busy *s*

  4. Your Walking Rabbit is oh so cute! I am glad that you are making it. I still would like to make one more with a more pastel background. I have a black & white check wool to use for the jacket.

  5. Hi Loris! Your blocks look great :-) I especially like the bunny!

  6. Love your star block. I'll have to check out the Just One Star challenge. I also like Elinor walking along the fence. Cheers! margaret

  7. Such lovely blocks. The bunny is too cute :-)

  8. Oh, good for you helping out with the one block.
    It is so nice to know that angel encamp around us.
    Very cute bunny.

  9. I am admiring that rabbit!!! And those pretty blocks, both so nice.

  10. Wonderful blocks...but I sure love that bunny...very cute!!
