I Wish You a Merry Quilt Along - Blocks 4

If you follow my blog, you know that I have a hard time following patterns exactly.  I tend to adapt them as I go.  Block 4 was no exception.  It was supposed to have four hanging ornaments, but I saw someone fussy cut a fabric with a six pointed star in the center for the largest of the original ornaments.  It occurred to me that I could paper piece a star and make mine look similar.  So that's what I did.

I'm also sticking with a red, white, and green color scheme and it helped me stick to my fabrics.  Since I'm using batiks it's hard to find a ton more to choose from.  Not that I'm complaining, I LOVE my fabrics I'm playing with.

I love the fussy cut snowflake in the middle!

The final block.  

I hope you get to quilt today!
