Final Block!!!

Oh my word! What a busy time it’s been since the last post. House guests galore, teaching classes, quilts to finish for customers and quilts to complete for shows! Whew!

And so without further ado, here is the final block for the mystery quilt.

The Lone Star design is an old one sometimes used alone as a a quilt’s central motif , but also with smaller stars or as a single block.  If you are interested, there are some fascinating snippets about this design, as well as quilt history, in the two websites below:

I hope that you have all enjoyed the challenge as much as I have, and I can’t wait to see the final results of all those who participated.

Next month will be the final instructions on putting it all together! (You have had them already so it’ll be a recap only!)
