Last year I participated in a birthday block swap. I asked for any 12 inch star in jewel tones on black.
I was surprised by the number of blocks that included purple. No two blocks were the same. I added the 5 inch sashing and little 5 inch stars randomly placed.
I'll use a dark purple for the backing.
Getting this UFO quilted and bound is my goal for Lovely Year of Finishes.
So far I've completed each month's goal and have a lot of UFO turned Lovely Finishes to show for it!
