Quilt-Alongs and Blocks of the Month

There are so many quilt-alongs, blocks of the month, and other group quilting activities on the web - enough to keep one busy for centuries. I've chosen a few to work on.

On 42 Quilts, Jenifer has been doing both Modern Monday and Traditional Tuesday. I've played a little catch-up and have these to show:

Modern Monday Block 11 - Bow Tie

Traditional Tuesday Block 8 - Pinwheel

Traditional Tuesday Block 18 - Flying Geese

Modern Monday Block 18 - Flying Geese

Modern Monday Block 5 - Sawtooth Star

Traditional Tuesday Block 5 - Sawtooth Star

Traditional Tuesday Block 11 - Bow Tie
Randi of Fresh Lemons is currently doing a Solstice Stars series.  I've recently acquired some bright new fabrics, and will be using them in these blocks.  In addition, I did a block from Lee of Freshly Pieced, called a Ribbon Star.

Whirling Star

Another Star - for me to keep

Another Star - requested by Carolyn in a swap
Lastly, for this post, I have a block called Triangles Galore, designed by Victoria of Bumblebeans, Inc. for the 15 Minutes of Play blog. I used "made" fabric with bright orange for mine, and now that she's made us a paper-piecing pattern, I'll try it with some of those new bright fabrics.

So many fun projects, but that ribbon star might be my favorite. Lovely effect!

Oh, Wow! Love that triangle galore block. It's stunning even though I like simple blocks. Like all the blocks on this post - especially the stars.
