    ok, slight change of plans, folks. And by slight, I mean major.

    This one ACTUALLY measures 12 1/2" unfinished, I measured the templates, and then the finished block. I wasn't leaving any room for error this time.


    ETA: oh yeah, the block is called "Night and Day"

    Well done, I think everyone have really created wowsers for this project.

    Shelly, yours will look wonderful in with all the others, not to worry..the requirements said nothing about "complex" star blocks..

    Shellyp, we need a mix of simple to complex stars to make our quilts beautiful. Mine is a simple star. :D

    My Star is a simple one, too. After seeing all the beautiful ones, I was a bit worried that mine might be too plain. But what Jstitch said is true. We need the "simple" ones to make the others shine even more and to give your eyes a place to "rest" between the blocks. I haven't put a picture of mine, yet, but they are all done. I took a pattern and modified it.

    Shelly, I really think the simple stars are the prettiest. I like to make myself do something challenging for these swaps so I learn something. Buy...I'd take a quilt of simple stars anyday :lol:

    I am going to do a second set and it will be a simpler star, not that my first one was real elaborate ! I mainly want to send in 24 blocks so I can get a better share of all these gorgeous blocks

    Melissa, I am No. 11, its taken me some time to get these done, but I have cracked it and am blazing away now. I know what you mean about doing 24, if there are 30 in this swap then we stand a better chance of getting a really lovely selection. Wonder if I can make another 12.

    Watch this space LOL

    Melissa, Someone asked me this question early on in the exchange, when we didnt have as many participants...and I had to turn them down,

    So, Im thinking its not fair to change the rules now and let you do odd numbers.. but you can do as many multiples of 12 as you like...

    I know want you mean Melissa. I want one of all of them too! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    They are all so pretty!!!

    I have 5 done need to finish this 12. Maybe.... I can do a second 12. But that just makes more blocks to want one of. LOL

    I am going to try to do a second set. I want to use them to make a quilt for my quest bed. I think it will make a great conversation piece. :D

    Ok. Sat down today with my fabric and pattern and put together the star block I had selected. It was in the new Fons and Porter magazine. Finished it and it is 14.5 not 12.5. Oh well, it will make a great quilt later and I'm back to the drawing board.

    Pattern says it's a 12 inch block. Oh well, I like it anyway.

    Well, I was going to say, check your seam allowances,, but two inches is a bit too much to be that..

    Its a beautiful block, would you like me to resize the cutting directions for you? I would be happy to give it a try...


    Well, I just noticed that it is the same as the block in my Avatar, except the center square..

    I'm auditioning stars for my blue/white star exchange. I'm using the fabrics for my Row Robin, so am making stars for that also.

    Here is star #1

    Here is first star for RowRobin-Christmas blocks, maybe my blue/white???

    Purple I always look first and read after - I thought maybe you were color-blind!! LOL I like your block though. It will be nice in your Christmas row robin.

    OK. Here is another block I am making (being the other block was to big). It's not as fancy as some. I have to admit I am intimidated by the talent I see here. Anyway, be kind, here is a simple star block.

    A simpler block, but a least it's the right size.
