The block is called the "Alabama Spinner Block" and was designed by Gene Black from Alabama. I fussy cut the center block because I simply did not want to attempt the circle Gene put in his design. I mean - come on - this was my first attempt at cutting and sewing half square triangles. My star points are not 100% accurate but I am pleased with this first attempt.
And, you gotta love the fringed lamp displaying my prized block! Lacking a design wall and wanting a straight shot at the block, I elected the living room lamp as "holder." Sort of suggestive of a New Year's Eve lamp shade on
my someones head!
This took me hours! I will eventually finish all the blocks - I will! - however enough for tonight. Happy quilting to all!
