Alaska Quilt Block #2

I would have posted this a couple of days ago but I have been having computer trouble. But now I will post block #2 and hopefully I will get it done before my computer crashes again.

This block is from The Calico Cow in Delta Junction, Alaska. To give you an idea of how far Delta is from me it takes about 6 hours to drive there (330 miles).
My grandparents picked this one up for me as they traveled out of Alaska back to Texas. When I first saw the fabrics I was unimpressed. I thought they were boring. Even as I was making this block I didn't think I would like the finished product. To me, it seemed boring. When it was all finished I was pleasantly surprised. I like the simplicity. The simple fabrics help to enhance the star in the middle. It will never cease to amaze me how you never really know how something will look until it is all finished.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day.

Until next time...

  1. Impressive block! Although the angles make me dizzy thinking back to high school Geometry LOL. Maybe that's why I'm not a quilter ;) .


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I will try to reply back to you if at all possible. Have a great day!
