Friday five, miscellaneous edition

1. What quilty web site will you hit today? I'm trying not to buy stuff unless I really need it, so I guess the one I'm most likely to hit is my own: Quilts Galore

2. Have you done the FabShop Hop recently? I start it but I never seem to finish - however, as it happens, I was just griping about it yesterday - that's over here too (at the bottom of that entry). (I should, however, add that the not-finishing is a recent development and I have finished several times before and won things a couple of times!)

3. Do you have current project on your design wall (can you show us a picture)? This picture was taken maybe a year ago, at my mom's house - however, those same 9 blocks are up on the new design wall, with some space between them because my intention is to start cutting sashing. (The sashing is going to be cranberry-colored.)

Star swap blocks

4. Have you signed up for any swaps for 2008? No, I have sworn not to do any more swaps until I do something with the swap blocks I already have! (Like the ones above.)

5. Are your December decorations still up? Part of them, yes, but I'm working on that. I had two (small) trees up - one is down and one is still up but I've started taking the decorations off. By my standards that's doing pretty well!

Did you make those block or was it a swap? They look great together.

They were a swap. They were supposed to be Christmas colors, but with "pink or cranberry" instead of red. The pink block in the center is the one I made - clearly I picked up on a different part of the instructions than everybody else did! But I think with cranberry sashing they will look good.

I guess so! The pink instead of red for Christmas colors was an interesting idea too. Your is very pretty. Is the 1 pink block the reason that you are having trouble deciding placement?

I think these blocks mostly dictated their own placement. The pink block clearly had to go in the middle, which is why three of the blocks are fated to become a table runner. The rest of them divided up into 5 green background, 4 gold background, one red, and one that was about evenly divided between green and gold. One of the greens was much darker than the rest, so I put it with the other two "odd men out" (which are also pretty dark, overall) and I think they will make a good table runner. So that left 4 green and 4 gold, which clearly needed to alternate... See, they practically arranged themselves!

I love those blocks! And they will look so elegant and rich with the cranberry settings. I love your quilt block -- put it in the center and be proud! It is the bright star!
