A Red Star...of Sorts
Christy found me some great blocks for this project, however, someone beat me to the more "starlike" block. So instead I did "Crown of Thorns". I do you hope you like it! I already had red solid fabric so that is the 2nd color I choose to use. Sorry, for sneaking this in "just under the wire"! And I must say for fabric that was bought accidently, I think you are going to end up with a beautiful quilt! All the different blocks really do look like stained glass. Just lovely!
(oh, and there is a story behind this block, so don't be confused if the one you get in the mail doesn't look exactly the same...Christy helped me with this block and after about 2-3 hours we were finally done! (She helped with some of the cutting & layout, the sewing was all me. Well, when we were finished and compared it to her's ....*drumroll* ....mine was considerably smaller! Yep, mine only measures 13"x13". Apparently, I like to use 3/8" seam allowances. Not to worry though, Christy is going to help me redo it next week & monitor my seams. *Sigh* I do apologize for the extra delay. Just put it towards "a beginning quilter's mistake". )
