Kat Quilt - Block 3

I'm still learning as I go with these blocks though clearly, my photography skills are not improving.  Oh well... you'll get the idea!

This block was inspired by my dear friend Brenda.  It was her suggestion to make shapes "peeking through" the black, so it was only fitting to do at least 1 block in honor of her!  One of her "sons" (friend of the family who is like a son to her) is a Marine.  When he was first deployed overseas, he and Brenda decided that they would look for Orion's Belt (3 stars in a row) in the sky at night, to remind each other that if they could both see the same thing, they were never really that far away from each other.  (Note that he is home, safe and sound now!)

This block has 3 stars in a diagonal line from corner to corner.
(Can you see the chalk lines in the photo above?)

I did my strip piecing only in the diagonal area that would show through.

Still need to work on the photography skills, because you can't really see all the patterns on the fabrics in this photo, but (hopefully) you can see that the pieced part shows through the openings.

A little better view of the fabrics.

Of course, the most important part of this block is that little ladybug!

Here are the other blocks: Block 1 --- Block 2
