    Well I made a small mistake on my Template, but rather than toss it I tried to add more blades. It worked but now my block is too big. It turned out to be a 16 in block rather than the 12. So I think I might use this as either a Pillow sham or a pillow. I think it turned out pretty good, but I will make another one correctly tomorrow.

    I will just have to use different fabric, I really did like the background fabric but I only have enough left to make a matching Pillow, so I will have to use something else.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    dedemac, wow yours is moving! nice color arrangement!
    can hardly wait to see the others, but gotta get cracking on 3 swaps that need rotary cutting. Will check in later in the week. Have a great one, ya'll.
    Hugs,

    I like all the different blocks you all are doing a great job. Mine is finished but for some reason my computer is not letting me upload pictures to this site or others. So until I figure it out I can only look at yours.

    Sometimes they just do 4 blades of the same color and the center. That would save you some fabric for another square.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Marytoddliz- I have ran into the same problem of ending up with a larger DP then intended and thus have gifted several nice pillows to family and friends.

    MamaHen - Your DP is fantastic. Im curious as to how your point tips are a different fabric. Is that a result of the print of the fabric... like in the Paisley DP I shared???
    Have an awesome day!

    Scrappy DP's are one of my favorites. My DP made from the scraps of the other BOM's we have done this far sits nicely along all the other finished blocks. I really am enjoying the 2013 BOM.
    Have an awesome day!

    I extended the template one inch, then made a second template out of that-cut fabric and then sewed them onto the original blade, then folded & sewed across like you showed. I made sure to include the 1/4" seam allowance in each of the template pieces where they came together.

Size:  244.2 KB Jenniky- Here is a close up of the blades. I only stitched in the ditch across those points when I appliqued the DP to my background fabric.

    Marybethiz I really like your background too, it will make a great modern looking pillow or sham.

    MamaHen yours is gorgeous! I love how much character the added points give it. The colors are wonderful together.

    I hope to have mine done tomorrow, I think I'll end up with an oversize block too so may do the whole thing over.

    Sulabug- WOW... love you DP I concur with all the above posted comments. I have to say though I especially love your DP. The Iris fabric has a definite WOW factor in my book. It kinda of gives it a stained glass effect I think.
    Have an awesome day!

    I have yet to get on the BOM bandwagon. I wanted to do the houses and still haven't gotten myself organized enough to get it done. But I came across this months pictures and they are all wonderful. Don't remember who was doing the yellow, black, white &grey for her daughter but maybe if you think of bees instead it will be easier. What we don't do for our kids huh!

    btw, for those of you who ended up with way too big plate, use the 4.5 line on your template.

    Do you mean you aren't able to print out the pattern or ?

    What do you think? DH says it is better without the little "stamens" I cut. I agree, looking at it --- it seems a starfish attacked my block!

    Obviously, this is not quilted yet. I used Elmer's to tack down the edges and used Heat n Bond for the center.

    CAS, I like the "starfish" in the center of your DP!
