Rainbow Quilt Block of the Month Block 5

Welcome back to the Rainbow Quilt Block of the Month designed by Janome Maker Carolina Oneto!  This month you will make the Eccentric Star Block! This Block is very fun and beautiful!

Carolina’s block is made in lovely calm colors!


Remember that all the blocks will have a finished size of 12” so that means the unfinished size will be 12 1/2”


White background

  • - Two 5 1/4” square
  • - One 3 1/4” square

Light blue

  • - Two 5 1/4” square
  • - Two 3” square

Dark blue

  • - Two 5 1/4” square



Make Half Square Triangles (HST)

Do this process with the 4 white squares of 5 1/4 ”and the two squares of the same size of the light blue and the dark blue fabric. You will assemble 8 half-square triangles that you must square up to the size of 4 1/2".

Press the seams and trim the block down to 4.5 inches square.



For this square you will use the 3 1/4 ”white square and the two 3” light blue squares.





  • Arrange your blocks in correct layout
  • Using a quarter inch seam allowance, sew together in rows. Join all rows, using a quarter inch seam allowance.
  • Press your completed block and trim down to 12.5″ square (if necessary).

And that’s all!

I hope you enjoy this new block! And don’t forget to share it!
