    Thought I'd post a pic of the Spinning Star block that I did at a workshop last week end.
    I signed up for it without even seeing what the block looked - thats me jump in with both feet LOL.
    I still have to put a border around it - not too sure what I am going to do with it. I keep thinking that I must stick to the same colour combinations so adventually I can make a lap quilt from all my blocks.
    Would be interested if anyone else has made this block.

    Tisha,

    I really like your block--the fabrics and colors are great! I haven't ever seen a pattern like that. Do you know if it is available anywhere? It looks like some work, but I really like it and would like to try it.
    Looks like you did a wonderful job on it, and I think you should definitely do more with it. You could make a couple more blocks like it and alternate with some complementary solids or tonals in like colors (or even with some simpler blocks made with same or similar fabrics/colors) and come up with a small "something"......

    Just a thought. Love it!! Love the pattern!!!

    Many thanks for your kind compliments :oops: Taking a bow as I type LOL.
    I may well make afew more of these but I have stupidly misplaced my fabric - I have seen it put away safetly but where I can't remember. Trouble with being so tidy I suppose LOL.
    Anyhow if you want the pattern PM me with your email address & I'll send you a copy.
    Thanks once again Janet.

    Tisha :wink:
