    This is the center block of a quilt that will be about 45 inches square..

    In the challenge, everyone is doing their own project..
    the challenge is to make progress..lol
    So, I chose this one. This is the center, it will be surrounded by an ohio star made of HSTs. The corners and setting triangles will also be bluework, and the border will be too.

    A big, long term project.

    Thanks Marcia, but I cant take credit.. The design is a pattern published in a Dec 2000 magazine..

    Really pretty block. The quilt should be wonderful.
    Was the fabric received with the design printed on it, ready to embroider?
    Or did you have to trace it yourself?
    Thanks.

    love baskets, love flowers, love the ohio star block...please post pic when finished, even if it does take a while. It's funny, but all of us on here can never get enough pics or details. like we are starving! we are inundated on this board, on the net, and in our daily lives with all our purchases, shopping trips etc. etc. etc. and yet, we are never satiated! Quilters are quirky and i are a quilter, LOL! p.s. it's beautiful already. :wink:
