November Blocks

I had a little bit of a hard time deciding what to do for my Lucky Stars block this month.  I am not super happy with how it turned out, but it's going to have to do. I tweaked mine a little from the original block so that my diagonal points were different from the other points.  I'm not sure if that was the right decision.

There is only one more block left for the year but I am considering going back and making the test block and maybe adding an extra block or two from the previous months

This month for the do. Good Stitches Wish Circle we have one of our stitchers, Kirsten, who has taken on the responsibility of being a quilter for the first time.  She chose + and x blocks, which is such a fun choice.  I previously made a quilt using a smaller sized version of this block but this was my first time making the 12" version.  She wanted the background and the plusses to be low volume, the rectangles at the end of the plusses to be black or gray, and the x to be scrappy.  This should be a fun quilt!

  1. It might not be your fave, but this month's star still works very nicely with the others. Looking forward to seeing where you continue to go with this.

    Your x/+ blocks are really fun too.

  2. I think the contrasting points of you star look good! And yours will be different, so there you go

  3. I did the same thing this morning - twice. I made the corner points a different fabric, tore it out and tried the same fabric. Still don't love the block. I'm thinking of leaving it out because , although it's a cool block, I don't think it's working with my fabrics!

  4. I'm really loving those X and + blocks! I see what you mean about the Lucky Stars block, but also it blends in really well with your current blocks. I'd leave it in unless you really hate it - they can't all be favourites!

  5. Your blocks look amazing! I love your Lucky Stars and I'm sure your bee mate will love the X+ blocks too!

  6. Do you have a setting in mind for your gorgeous Lucky Stars quilt? I just saw the Gypsy Wife quilt today. I wonder if you could do something like that to set them off specially? Just a thought =) No matter what it will be a very special quilt.
