It`s the last day for the Dots on Dots Blog Hop! Today it is my turn to show my blocks in this wonderfully creative blog hop! Thank you to our hard working hostess Corrie at Quilt Taffy and to Madam Samm at Sew We Quilt, the inspiration behind this and many blog hops to come. This has been a great experience. We share, learn and grow and we meet quilters from around the world!
My blocks are unfinished, 11 inches square, made with scraps. I`m crazy for stars and that`s the theme I went with. Yes, I know my last blog hop was starry too.
The star in block one is made from a vintage 1930`s apron. Red and teal are some of my favorite colors. The fabric is linen with sweet red dots. Isn`t that a sweet flower? The pictures are a little off center because I was standing on a chair on my porch to try and get the good natural light.
Block two. I thought the black dots would look nice against the blue print because there`s a teeny bit of black in there. I`m still not sure about that pink gingham in the center of the star. Both blocks will be in a star quilt I`m making for my daughter in law. She is worth every stitch. Works full time, is taking double college courses and takes care of my son who has a broken back.

Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate it! I have tried to straighten out my font but it is not cooperating. Sorry about the tiny print.
