Today's block is a star so it is near and dear to my heart (of course). About half way through piecing it I realized I had made something similar to it before, although it was an entire quilt. If you leave the corner triangles off it becomes a hexagon...and the perfect table topper.
This is number 339 of 366 blocks (I have been working my way through the 365 Quilt Blocks a Year Calendar this year and am so close to being finished I can hardly stand it!) This is a 12-inch block.
Now for the giveaway. This time of year I end up bringing my projects with me as I tend to spend a lot of time waiting at basketball practices, in between games and other activities my son participates in, and it gets dark so quickly it makes my stitching time short. I found these Ott Lights a few years ago and they are perfect to take along in your bag. They are actually compact enough you can fit it in your purse. There is also a clip on the back so you can hang it from your purse or even your coat. Anyway, I love mine and would love to share one with two different winners.
I have also found they work great in poorly lit areas at home. To enter leave me a comment telling me where you stitch when you wait, the car, a hallway, steps, the great outdoors, or maybe at your kitchen table. If you are already a follower or a new follower leave me a second comment stating that for another chance to win. I will use the random number generator to choose the winners on December 8 at 5 p.m CST, and I will ship internationally. Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
