Earlier this week I gave instructions for the Ohio Star quilt block. I gave it in three finished sizes 6", 9" and 12". Today I decided that I might try a small version. A 3" block. A 3" block means each section is 1" square - that makes pretty small triangles for the star points.
Remember Day 1 when I had a photo of bricks that I used as my quilting design?
Bargello Swirls is a bargello design I created in 2011 using Hoffman Fabrics. I had been asked by many of my students to design and publish a circular bargello which is what prompted me.
Today I made an Ohio Star block. This is a nine-patch block similar to the Twin Star block I made a few weeks ago.
Breakfast meetings are fine when you don't have to cook. It leaves you time to focus on the meeting rather than the cooking. Not that I mind cooking, but it always tastes better when someone else does it.
Yesterday as I was adding the final stitching to my anemone block I was thinking how easy it would be to blanket stitch applique this flower. You could also make each petal a slightly different color if you wanted.
February's flowers start out with an Anemone. There are approximately 120 species of Anemone and according to the Oxford English Dictionary, Greek anemone means "daughter of the wind" so often they are known as "windflower".
