January blocks

Hi everyone,

Did any of you get involved in the Bushfire appeal last year? It is for a wonky star block that is very cute and easy. Victoria has an excellent tutorial on the construction of it. Check out

http://thesillyboodilly.blogspot.com/2009/02/wonky-star-tutorial.html for the pattern. I am sending little packets out (on Monday morning) of the background fabric to use. I would like you to use any color you might have for the star points. If you don't feel comfy with this, please, let me know and I can send some fabs for you to use instead.

I haven't been thinking straight for a few weeks, too much stimulation. Let me know if you have any questions, k? No rush on the returns to me.

Have a better year...Elaine


  1. hi Elaine! Oh that looks like fun.
    soon I'll have to start narrowing down my options for my block. Every time someone comes up with something I think I want to do the same thing.

    Enjoy the holiday season! Vivian

  2. Looks great and I have loads of fabric to use!

  3. Elaine, I made a top for the Bushfire appeal and I LOVE the wonky star blocks!! :)

  4. Hi Elaine,
    Do you have a color preference for the center block?

  5. No, no preference at all. Whatever makes you happy will be just great with me. Sorry it's taking so long for me to answer. Have fun with it, Elaine
