The stars aligning...

or something like that...

Old Red Barn Co. on Flickr hosted a quilt along for Astrisk blocks and the Block Lotto did some wonky ones this month. I have been wanting to do a Union Jack quilt even though I am not British. Anyway... here are my blocks for the Block Lotto:


And here is what I did with the leftover strips:



it was a fun little project today.

OMG! Yesterday, I was thinking about a quilt that used asterisk blocks to represent FLOWERS, a spider, twinkling stars (or fireworks) with some smaller ones as a pieced border ... and you have made the flowers in my mind. They are WONDERFUL.

Ps. I hope you'll share your flowers on the Block Lotto Blog, too. One of our winners this month might be inspired to make a flower quilt ;-)
