Such an interesting block, and I love the last layout. Lately I'm really being drawn to layouts with lots of "blank" space. At the top of my to do list is getting caught up on a mystery quilt and doing a Christmas wall hanging.

Laura McFall

What's on top of my to do list varies every day, depending on my mood. But I really need to get a tool box cover made for my son, and I am also 'itching to stitch' a quilt for my friend. I love this block and the settings, esp the black background - looks like they're floating.

I think I like the bright colors the best. Very pretty block!

Lynn Markley

Love your block! I am currently finishing a blue work snowman table runner for my daughters birthday on 12/1.


Your block is very pretty! At the top of my sewing list right now? Finishing Christmas gifts! And quilting 3 quilts.

Susan Coolidge

I am currently working on layering a 1930's quilt top with batting and a backing. I'll machine quilt it when finished. The top was made by my friend's grandmother and has not been used, so the pink is bright and the embroidery is colorful.

I'm working on a lap quilt for my niece for Christmas, then on to a few more! I loved your blocks they definitely inspired me for my project! Thanks


Love this block. I will definitely try this one. Congrats on being included in the magazine. Can't wait to get my hands o. It.

Project at the top of my pile at the moment is a prayer quilt for my BFF's-grandbaby. I'm almost done with the stitch in a ditch and bind it by next Saturday for his birthday party.

Great block and I'd love to give it a try. Thank you for sharing and being part of a give away.
