Triple Star Quilt Block and Wisdom from Mae West

Triple Star quilt block
The Triple Star quilt block is a little different in the construction from the standard methods in putting a block together. But ... don't assume that different means difficult.

This quilt block is created using
Mae West
simple shapes -- just squares and triangles. The sewing is done in diagonal rows rather than the usual straight rows. That's it. Easy peasy.

And speaking of "stars" -- how about a little wisdom from a Hollywood femme fatale:

Quote for today:

"When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before."
~ Mae West
