This year the BOM has had a different 12" star block each month. Participants are invited to make samplers in colorways of their own choosing. I've saved the patterns in case I'd like to give that a try.
Here is this weekend's finish. The scrappy hearts were a Block Swapper's exchange. I set them and added a white border (see here ). When I pulled the flimsy out of the box I thought that the all-white border was rather boring. I tried a matchstick border (red with white tips) but that had too much red. In the end, I made a checkerboard which turned out just right. I quilted hearts in the hearts, meandering in the background, and more "almost feathers" in the border. The finished quilt is 48 x 54.
See what other quiltmakers have on their design walls at Judy's Patchwork Times.
