We each made 32 -4.5" blocks , 16 -8.5" blocks to exchange and as many 12.5" blocks as we would like to exchange.
I decided to make the asterisk block I made for my pink and green medallion for my 4.5" block.
The method naturally makes two different color ways :-)
For the 8.5" block I decided to make a variation with my easy deaden ruler.
Yes, it is virtually a dead ringer for Japan's flag of war ;-). I was thinking pepermint candy. Oh well!
These were really fun to make :-)
I had a hard time making the circles centered when I trimmed them.
What to use for the center? Big circles? Small? Medium! Red or white?
My ig friends helped me choose medium red :-)
I wasn't sure I would have time to make any 12" blocks. I tried this one with flying geese and fell in love!
I made five of them all together :-)
I especially love the pinwheel that the flying geese made in the center :-)
I am on my way to meet the group to swap blocks. I can't wait to see them all!!!
Pst... I'm back from lunch and here are the AMAZING ladies...
...and all of the AWESOME blocks...
I really don't have time to deal with these until January. Let's see how long I can hold out ;-)
Most of my friends are betting against me ;-)
