I Wish You A Merry Quilt Along Block Eleven Plus Prizes
Don’t forget, besides the prizes you can win each week, there is also a big prize for everyone who posts a finished quilt at the end.
Here are some of the sponsors for the BIG prize that you can win at the end of the quilt along.
And now for block 11.
Here is my finished North Star block.
I dug really deep into my stash for this block. I just KNEW that I had to keep that shiny (slippery) pretty (insert swear word here) fabric. See I am not a hoarder, I USED it. LOL. Anyway, I love how the star finished off.
Quilting the block
Below is a couple of close up photos of the quilting on this block.
Sandwich and baste your block. I used my quarter inch or walking foot for this one. And echo stitched all the way around the star, in a triangle shape. I deliberately chose white thread to contrast with the red, to (pretend) show light radiating from the star.
Then I stitched in the ditch around all the shapes in the star. Trying to match the thread color with the star.
Just love how the flange pops out.
The Hosts for the Quilt Along
Please go and have a look at all the hosts posts today. Each of the host will be making all the blocks throughout the Quilt Along and will be providing tips and hints to help you along they way. Plus they will help answer any questions you may have. And it will be awesome to see all the different fabric that is being used by every host, to help you make a decision for your own.
Post your links in the next 2 weeks to be able to win these prizes. A new set of prizes will be up for grabs for each block being released.
Add your link on the linky party at Kathleen Scargle McCormick at kathleenmcmusing.blogspot.co.za. If you don’t have a blog, you can still enter the giveaway by posting you block on Instagram with the #iwishyouamerryqal and in the Facebook group – I Wish You a Merry Quilt Along with the #iwishyouamerryqal. I can’t wait to see everybody’s blocks.
Miss a block!
