Blocks for the Quilt Guild

The quilt guild I belong to, Big Springs, has decided to make a group quilt. We aren't quite sure what we'll do with it once it is finished, but we're going to have a great time making it. At our January meeting, each person received instructions to make a block. Every block was different, but all were traditional. Along with the instructions was a fat quarter of Kona Snow fabric. The only rule was to use the Kona Snow as a background fabric and to not use batik fabric in the block. 

The block that was assigned to me is the Ohio Star. I had fun going through my stash looking for just the right fabric to use. Of course I selected a dragonfly print for the center. The world would probably stop spinning if I didn't have a dragonfly something within an arm's reach of wherever I am.

There were a few blocks left over after everyone had chosen so I asked if I could choose a second one. This one is called Square and Star. Again, it was fun deciding on fabrics and I scrapped this one up a bit more than the instructions called for.

Making these blocks was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Just the right amount of time and challenge to be creative and complete tth blocks.

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone did with their blocks at the February meeting.
