My Dakota Gold

I can't believe it's week 16 already! This means I have at least 16 blocks made - some I made two of so I actually have more. And they are all interesting! If I hadn't been doing this Party thing I wouldn't have any blocks at all!

This is my Dakota Gold block for this week. Because it is a 10in. block, I used batiks again. I wanted to use some gold fabric, but this is the closest I got. I liked this block. It was fast and easy. I think this block would made a lovely quilt. Then the corner units would show up like stars. I love blocks that, when put together, create a secondary pattern.

Love those batiks.

Now that we have a few blocks up it's interesting to see how the look of the block changes depending on what colours were used where. In some the longer sashing pieces appear dominant while in others the 5 small boxes appear dominant.

This is a really interesting block... I like the 'secondary pattern" blocks too. AND, I love stars!

It reminds me of a brilliant amethyst ring!
