Block of the month setting

I have assembled one set of blocks from my quilt group (Sussex - Wantage Quilt club).



I also made this quilt for our neighbor's little girl. She likes dogs and draws them this way. The pattern is from Quilt Almanac 2012 from the editors of Quilt magazine.

One more Feathered Star

Finished one more Feathered Star. Now I have four Feathered Star tops done. And i fixed the unevenness of the setting blocks. The extra pinning at the final edges was most helpful. :-) Thanks for all your advice.
