When Eileen of Eileen in Stitches put out a call for 12" blocks in blues to help her make quilts for her grandparents who had both suffered of injuries and illness, I happened to design this Whirling Star Block. You can read about the quilt she made, Starry Dreams, here! I made a couple of these for myself, thinking I might design a quilt eventually. That was September. When Angela of So Scrappy announced the colour for January of blues with a hint of purple, I thought this block could be my January one (even though there isn't any hint of purple).
However, the blocks sat...but I did bring them down to Florida with me.
And put them on the design wall.
To, you know, remind me.
Not to neglect them.
Two good friends of mine are
in hives this year, and I've hesitated to join for a few reasons. However, seeing and hearing about their sewing and growing made me think,
darn it if I couldn't do my own sewing bee and sew myself two blocks a
month, I'd have 24 blocks by the end of the year, in rainbow
colours, a pretty sweet quilt. Well, on one of MacGyver's ball game days
where he's gone the majority of the day, I decided to whip up (ha ha!) the
February and March colours in this block.
Here they all are together.
This is fun! I did follow her colours all last year for my cow blocks (3 more to make there), but I never did link up, so today I am linking up with soscrappy for the first time! And with Scraptastic Tuesday either at Mrs. Sew and Sow or at She Can Quilt.
