Carol's Fall Flower

Carol's Fall Flower
December Block

I took some artistic license with the December block because I did not want to fuss with convex and concave pieces. If I had cut the pieces, I knew that none of them would have turned out the correct size, so I grabbed a pencil and created an adaptation.


The directions called for lovely curved petals to form a chrysanthemum. My adaptation (see my pencil lines on the diagram) looks more like a star; thus, I am calling it a "Star Aster" rather than a chrysanthemum.

All the blocks for the 2011 Block of the Month are finished. Now, I need to decide what to do with them.


The complete set of Quilter's Neighborhood blocks.

  4. I love it! It's very pretty. Good thing I don't quilt. I would've struggled with the curves, not thinking about making them straight lines, lol.

  8. Your adaption works well with the other blocks. I think I would have skipped the curves too unless I hand did them and I don't hand piece!

    Getting closer to a finish. Keep going! B.
