Star Block for Amanda. For Twelve Month Quilting Bee. I added the green leaves and the fushia dandelions from my stash. Seriously love this block. Tons of half-square triangles, and a partial seam too, but the outcome is totally worth it. A huge THANK YOU to Lainey for the awesome tutorial: laineybugdesigns.blogspot.com/2011/08/modern-star-block-t...
Block for Nancy
For her month in Bee Unique Bee Knotty Nancy sent a piece of Christmas fabric (the green fabric in the centre of the block) and asked for any kind of pieced Christmas block. After making this block I was on a paper-piecing kick. This block is "Sunblock" from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 3. I think that it looks like a Christmas flower.
