Mixing it up & working on the alternate blocks gets you familiar with what's ahead for the finish. You can 'audition' the look to decide if it's what you want. We have one quilt shop in our small town that is well-stocked & we like to 'shop local' to keep her in business. I also shop online & in the large city that's two hours away.


have a wonderful weekend! enjoy the sun.


Your blocks always look so beautiful! Those pale blue Ohio stars are so delicate and pretty!

My usual is to go to the real brick-and-mortar stores because I have to feel "fondle" all the fabric before I decide. In the last 2 years I have greatly curtailed my fabric purchases, hoping to use up what I already have. I did indulge about 8 months ago when a favorite quilt shop in the desert closed and they had some fantastic sales. You may have been there?? Monica's Quilt & Bead shop?


What a great block! I know you like complex blocks and this is so different and interesting.
I am lucky to have two independent fabric stores in my SoCal city, and a JoAnn's the next city over. A visit to breathe in fabric, color and texture is always a good thing.
