2016 end-of-year challenge

Each year we set a challenge to be revealed at our Christmas lunch. This year the challenge was to make a 10 1/2 inch star block (any star design) using the challenge and background fabric supplied, with any additional fabric each quilter chose to include. Thanks to everyone who made a block (or two) or plans to.

The blocks will be made into quilts for a community donation during 2017. Thirty four star blocks were delivered at the Christmas lunch, and we know that there are a few more to come, so there will be enough to make two community quilts.

In these photos, the blocks are untrimmed, and arranged randomly on a design wall - there's more work to do: layout? sashing? borders? quilting? binding? Plenty of fun!

The blue fabric was designated as the background, the print
which includes blue and green elements, is the challenge fabric.
Viewer's Choice, voted by members at the lunch
earlier in December, was this beauty made by Val.

Love the rebels, the non-conformers - surprisingly,
there was only one ... so far!

And of course, lunch finished with a great spread of desserts!
