Well, she’s done it again! Kim Loar of Lancaster, Pennsylvania is our Blazing Star contest winner with this amazing interpretation of not one, but TWO, of our template sets: Blazing Star paired with Crossroads. Kim won the first Just Curves contest featuring the Carolina Favorite block, too. And, I’m sure you will agree that this one is truly imaginative. Thanks, Kim!
And a close up:
Here are line drawings of the blocks, so you can see more clearly what Kim worked with in combining the two designs:
