Framed stars (and a winner)

Last week I showed you Scaled Stars blocks made by other people - now here are some that I made myself (umm, and also some made by others...).  I made the top right and bottom left blocks in this photo, and my friends Anne and Jeanie made the top left and bottom right blocks respectively.

Framed stars

These are samples for our local guild block of the month - the idea is that people make a 6.5" scaled star block following my tutorial and then add more fabric so the block finishes at 9.5" square (this also means that there's a certain margin for error if the star block doesn't quite finish at 6.5" square!).  Hopefully once lots of blocks have been made it will look like stars sprinkled across the night sky.

I also promised a winner for my Westwood Acres giveaway. chose number 172, so the winner is tlcala4me - congratulations!

I hope everyone has had a great weekend!  I spent the weekend at our annual guild retreat and it was lovely.  It was also quite productive so I have lots of things to share on the blog soon.

These are fabulous. I love the use of navy against the crisp white. Fabulous!

I love this block. Im thinking of selecting it for my month in the Sieblings Togethers bee. I think your dark versions here did just make that an easy choice
