Stars All Over My Wall


This is my design wall for today.  Lots of stars.  The big blocks are 12 inches and the little guys are five inchers.  I finally finished one of the blocks for the 2011 BOM -- it's the one in the center of the top row.  I know it probably has lots of names, but here it's called "Old Maid's Puzzle."  The other blocks for this month were the "Ohio Star,"  "Churn Dash," and a variation of "Churn Dash."  I doubt that I will do any of them because there are others that I'd rather do.

To see everybody else's design walls, click over to Judy's blog, here.


Tomorrow or the next day, I will post a tutorial about how to machine piece a Lemoyne star -- assuming we still have power.  We're at the top edge of the predicted blizzard path.  I hope everyone stays safe..

Wow, those are terrific blocks. You must put an incredible amount of time in each one of them. Great job!

Love the stars.... I'm liking how the green one is popping... with the the green behind the points.
So are you mixing dyes in prepartaion for the 'big snow'?

I like them all but I especially like the blue/purple small stars. They remind me of snow flakes - but nice fluffy flakes - not the blizzard we are currently experiencing!
