Description

November - Jo (Joke) chose a Star crossed block, with a low volume background and bold bright fabric for the other two parts. Love the bright colours!

January - Melissa (Menolly13) chose a Churn Dash block, using raspberry/maroon, pink, chocolate brown, golden yellow, tangerine orange,  background fabric to read white or cream, and the centre to be fussy cut if possible.  Fun block to do - loved the mice!

February - Valerie (cally68) requested a sailboat block, with white or white on white background and the boats and sails in low volume blues and greys. Love the low volume look of it!

March - I chose the Scrap Jar Star. 

April - Jordan asked for the Starflower Block by Ellison Lane using Kona snow.  Loved making the block, and bonus was there was a second one for me.

May - Legogirl chose a Granny square in the colours of our own choosing.

June - Capetown girl asked for a Disappearing nine-patch in low volume, with bright pinwheels in two corners.  Fun to make.  

July - VictoriaJ asked for an economy block. Quick and easy, and so much fun I made 4!

August - Clare (claireepoppins) asked for a Maple Leaf block in autumnal colours with a low volume background.  Really enjoyed making this block - can't wait to see it all put together.

September - Nicole asked for a bright and scrappy Postage Stamp block, and to leave them as 4 separate blocks. What a fun and scrappy quilt she will have!

October - Robynn chose Broken Dish Square in purples and blues, pink, bright green, and turquoise/teal. She asked for the 4 blocks to be kept separate.  I love the pattern and the bright colours.  It is going to be a fabulous quilt for daughter for college.

November -  Dana asked for any House Block in bright colours - and I chose My Home Sweet Home House Block pattern by Bee in My Bonnet, from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 8.  It was fun and easy block to put together, and now I am inspired to make a House Block project for myself!  Can't wait to see all of Dana's House blocks!
