Winner and Goshen Star Block

Congratulations to Sarah, the thirteenth commenter on the giveaway post.  An email is on the way.  A huge Thank You to everyone who left a comment.  I enjoyed reading each one and sharing my little celebration with all of you.

This is my version of the Goshen Star block, the fourth block Janet Wickell has given us for her Scrap Quilt Along.  The look of this block changed dramatically with where the light, medium and dark fabrics were used.  In my version I love the way the light and medium fabric in the bands look like handkerchiefs, at least to me.  Here are all four blocks so far:
It's going to be a very colorful scrap quilt.

I also made the fields block for the America the Beautiful quilt, so I'm done with that until I get the next issue of Quilting.

From one end to the other.  My block is 57" long.

I've been trying to get a good picture of Moxie, and this is the best I could do today.  She is such a cute cat, but I cannot get a decent picture of her.  I'm just going to keep trying.

Her tent and her tunnel take up a good piece of real estate, but she's worth it.

God Bless You.  Here's to another fun year of blogging.

Moxie is adorable. She looks a lot like my Cha Cha. Hope she behaves better (ha!)
