When my plans for today went SPLAT–actually it was me who tripped and went splat on the pavement yesterday and was too sore to be walking around today–I thought it might be a good day to make a block for Astronaut Karen Nyberg's Star Block Challenge.
I've known about the challenge since last Fall, but forgot until Lynda reminded me in an email suggesting it might be a fun July activity for the Block Lotto community. The deadline is August 1.
You can read more about it here.
I remembered how last Fall, I had been thinking of making a version of one of the blocks I was planning for the lotto this year ... though it was only a rough pencil sketch back then. Now I had the pattern (June's Sunrise block) and all I had to do was resize it.
I have no doubt my red, white and blue color choices were influenced by the day. Happy Independence Day ... wherever you are and whatever you did, I hope your Fourth of July was a lot more eventful (and less sedentary) than mine.
