|Ohio Star Quilt block|
I didn't like any of the "friendship" blocks that were featured in Mimi's book, so I asked Jules what her favorite block was; she replied that she liked the Ohio Star block. I searched on-line for a pattern, incorporated her favorite color (pink) as well as that of a few other quilt mentors (yet to be written.....will do that today!) and cut & assembled the block.
The first attempt, I cut wrong and so the block came out too small. Huh. Oops. I set it aside, thinking I'd finish it off as a mug rug/coaster to send to Jules one day, and then I recut the block and made one the right size for the quilt.
I finally this week finished the mug rug and here it is, ready to mail to Jules. I used a map fabric on the back and quilted a little line from her home to mine after I quilted in all the ditches as well.
