This is the final block (#12) in the Block of the Month series. Yippee! This one was pretty tedious, with 72 triangles in this 12" block. As usual, I changed some of the fabrics and did a little rearranging of the supplied fabrics. The new series begins the first week of September and I've signed up for this new BOM series too.

I made a 13th block to add to this series. The BOM series ended up having 8-12" blocks and 4-6" blocks. Unless you set them in kind of a medallion or even put all 4-6" blocks together to make a 12" block, the setting just didn't make sense to me. This extra block now gives me 9-12" blocks, enough to make a 3 x 3 block square tablecloth or lap quilt. I think my leftover 6" blocks will become pot holders. My kitchen is blue and they'll fit right in.
I have extra fabric to sash the blocks and add a border (maybe two). I'll post an update when I get the blocks set. Right now, I'm still thinking Christmas projects need to come first. Ho, Ho, Ho!


  1. I love the extra block pattern you chose! It really matches the other blocks well. After finishing two blocks of 72 triangles each, I went with something very simple for my extra block(s). Think I like yours usual! :-) You are the quiltmaster!

  2. I know I'll love your blocks too! You are too humble....your work is gorgeous!
