Block of the Month, Part 2

The second installment of the Blogger's Block of the Month came out today.  Not being the patient type, I headed straight for my sewing room after work, to see what I could make of it.  The instructions are on Vicki's blog, here.  This block was fun to put together, and since Vicki's instructions left a number of corners trimmed off, I made mini-half-squares which I will keep in hopes that they can become part of the sashing or border later on.

This month's block is on the left, surrounded by the spare half-square triangles (which need trimming).  Last month's block is on the left.


  1. I like the purple and blue combination! I am taking those mini HST and is making a mug rug for a Christmas present.

  2. It looks fabulous!! This is going to be my kind of quilt!

  3. Both blocks are very pretty! Love the bright colors with a black background!
