County Fair

County Fair is a block I had never seen before and it would be a choice if you want a bit of a challenge. Blocks within a block is how you might describe County Fair as there are four distinct star blocks within the larger block. All in all that means lots of pieces.

The good news is that your quilt can go together faster since you make larger blocks and therefore, need fewer in the end.

By switching up the colours for the background you can make a really striking quilt. Or why not try using a unique layout for the blocks to achieve another interesting look for your special project.
