Our Guild's Block of the Month

Let me present our Quilt Guild's Block of the Month for September. It's called 'Spinning Star'. I don't know where the pattern came from. There are a lot of rules to this 'block of the month' thing. I'm not good with rules! Okay, so rules were made to be broken, right? The first rule was to make this in a 12inch size. There are 16 HST in this thing! No way I would make it any smaller! So far so good. Use your favourite colours. Nope! Didn't do that. If you don't want to make it for yourself, make this month's block in yellow. Okay. I'm still doing what I am supposed to. I am going to donate this block to our Guild. Someone there, I have no idea who, (but it won't be me) will put all the yellow blocks together and make a quilt to donate to Quilts From the Heart. That sounds good.

This block is very similar to 'Starflower' of week 22 of the Friday Block Party. We did that one back in the spring. I really liked 'Starflower', but not so much this month's Guild block, so I think I won't make one for myself and just donate the yellow one. So I really didn't break any rules.

Speaking of rules. Since I joined Blogtoberfest, I will have to post every day of the month. This is day 2. So far so good. Wow! I'm really following the rules! I am going to try to post a picture for each day tool That is not one of the rules, but I figure, what's a post without a picture? Sometimes my self-imposed rules are harder to follow than the others. But that's a problem for my shrink and I won't bore you with that.

I have made that star block back when I was teaching my charm quilt classes, early 1990's. I didn't remember the name.

I really like this block plus the starflower you referenced. Once again your piecing is the best.
