The Chosen


I'm participating in the Choose Your Own Blockalong at Live a Colorful Life. 

I want to add enough blocks to my 12 -30s reproduction birthday club blocks for a large bed quilt. 
My request of the birthday club was for 12 inch star blocks of choice in 30s reproduction fabrics on a blue background. 

So my first choice of block is a star block following those rules. 
The first star block is Annie's Choice the second one is Ann's New Years Eve Star. 



Red and white blocks in 3, 6, 9 and 12 inches is my second blockalong project. 

I have 12- 12 inch blocks from a red/white swap last year and I want to make enough blocks to finish a large bed quilt.   Hopefully each week I hope to make the equivalent of at least one 12 inch block.  For instance, this week I made one 9 inch Crossover block and 3- 3 inch 9 patches.

The first star block is Annie's Choice. Yep, I know it because it was once a choice for the Block Lotto :-)
