Well, step six of the Quiltville mystery is done, 16 Ohio star blocks with nine-patch corners. Mine have different green middles, but I thought this one was 'specially cute with the Santa face looking out the side. :)
We also had to do 16 half Ohio star blocks and four ¼ Ohio star blocks. Given these instructions, I've pretty much got the layout figured out, but Bonnie asked us not to reveal it, so I'm keeping mum.
My guild picks a different charity project each year - this year it's to make incubator blankets for the local children's hospital. It's a super place to use up orphan blocks, as blankets only have to finish at 24 x 24. I've had these teeny half nine patch blocks sitting in a box for 3 years now, 12 light and 16 dark. Too many of them to throw away, and not enough of them to do anything with.
BUT, pairing the light ones with a pink hst, and the dark ones with a blue hst, I've been able to make two incubator blankets. A couple of borders and I'll be ready to go:
Not sure what color to border the blue one with yet... I have more blue for an outer border, but what for an inner border?
