I Wish You a Merry QAL Block 11, North Star {2017-11-29}

We are nearing the finish line with the I Wish You a Merry QAL with block #11 being a North Star designed by Kathleen McCormick of Kathleen McMusing. You can find her blog post with the block pattern right here.

This block was a challenge, as using the triangle ruler is still foreign to me.  Next time I will size up the cut blocks a hair to give me a little more wiggle room when sewing the seams together.  That said, one of the reasons I love these QALs is to learn from the various talented designers and hosts to enhance my skills.  I read peruse each of their block blogs to see the various ways they make the actual block.


I love the brightness of this particular block.



Here is an updated snapshot of my blocks to date.   Close the finish line!

I continue to love the Elf, the Reindoe, and the Poinsettia blocks.  They are quite fun to look at.
