Block Nine

Just a few more blocks and it will be time to set this quilt together! This is my ninth block for the Moose on the Porch Layer Cake Quilt Along.

This modified Ohio Star block was submitted by Jovita Goldschmidt. There are at least four ways this block can be arranged and it was fun spinning it around and deciding which layout worked best. I like the center block highlighted so the bird stands out and I know I am going to use white setting strips to put it together so I didn’t want any white on the outside edges.

The fabric line I picked for this challenge is continuing to give me fits. It’s “Give a Hoot!” by MoMo and it features fairly large scale prints. The polka dots are not dots but ovals so they have directionality that I really have to watch. The little pink and red polka dots in this block are not from the line but I used them to accent the bird in the center. I do love the bright, bold colors and the finished quilt is sure to be cheerful.
