Completed block

Below the cut (cut for Fe who shall receive the block in the post in a day or two) is my September block for the Virtually Bequilted quilting bee. This now marks the end of the cycle. I've finished all my blocks for this project.

The challenge was - adventure. And I tried to meet this by adding fabric - I don't normally like adding fabric and I don't like added fabric to my blocks so that was tough to get around. And the geometry of this block nearly did my head in and I had to have two gos at getting the template right. Now that I've done it, I think it was really easy and I'd like to do one for my L'Amour quilt but this template is 12" and that project is 10" blocks and I'm not sure I want to try redrafting up the template again!

I'm very happy with how it turned out. I think in this year I have mastered getting points to ... well, point.




This is of course a Jinny Beyer pattern. I think I could quite happily only work through Jinny Beyer patterns from what has now become our (mine and my mum's) bible - her latest book. It's called Sunbeam and is an 8 pointed star.
