blogger's block of the month

September was the final month for the blogger's block of the month which started in September 2011 - I already had the June, July, and August blocks cut out so thought I'd get them sewn over the past few days and I also did the September double star blocks too.


of course now I've discovered I have 39 blocks - so I needed to either take some out or add more so I'm going to do 3 more of the September double star block to get 42 blocks.

I really like these blocks and I can't wait to get the quilt sewn together - I'm thinking about a small white sashing - maybe 1/2 inch - between the blocks just in case some don't square up exactly.  They are 8" square so it will end up around 51 x 59 - just the right size for a lap quilt :)


  1. gorgeous leanne well done and the white sashing sounds perfect.xx

  2. They are so great!! Yes, a skinny white sashing will be wonderful.

  3. Oh my! There for a while you were behind in making blocks and now you're caught up and head of me! I'll get crackin' on mine soon. When we started, I didn't know it would be a 13 month BOM, but I'm glad I will end up with 26 blocks. Arranging them should be interesting. I'm thinking to put mine on point, or a combination of on-the-square and on-point. It will be fun to see everyones' finishes.
