    Hi everybody! It seems like forever since I've posted pictures of what I am making other than Swish! and the second Swish!
    Well, I got the binding finished this morning and now the first Swish! is completely finished! Yea!!! So, I have been thinking about what to work on next.

    I decided yesterday to make a Northern Lights block and see if I like it. This is not the regular NL like I did before. This one is completely different. It is a 16" block, which I've never made any block that big before. I think I might at least make some NL blocks and see if I want to make a whole quilt out of them.

    The pattern calls for two different blocks in it. One is the Northern Lights block and the other is a type of chain block. The colors in this first one are actually the colors called for. They only tell you the colors to use on one then you make them all different, except for the navy color, so it'll be up to me from now on.

    This could be an interesting quilt....

    Ooohhhh! I can see why it is called Northern Lights! That green is just spectacular! Can't wait to see what other colors you come up with.

    With that chain block in there, that navy is going to shoot right across the quilt and make it sing!

    Really like this pattern. Have never done a block this size myself. Please post more as you progress so we can all be inspired. Keep up the fantastic work.

    Oh, I should of said that I'm making the second Northern Lights Star block now. I can't make the chain block until I make 4 of the star blocks. I'm about half done with the second block.

    I'm hurrying!

    Hi Amma,

    Thank you very much! What does LMBO stand for? I'm still learning some of these.

    Alright everybody! I got the second star done. I think this quilt is going to be so bright and cheerful....not to mention pretty! Here is the second block. The light colored squares are actually a pretty pink with red and light blue flowers. I can't get the pink to show up right.

    WOW! I was going to say I love the colors in the first one but together just the two are really gorgeous! Can't wait to see what the whole quilt will look like!!

    I really like this block alot. It is the sort of blocks I tend to favor.

    Just curious what size squares/HSTs are you using to get the 16" quilt block?
