May pattern is "Eight Hands Around" from Judy Hopkins' book 501 Rotary Cut Quilt Blocks (That Patchwork Place). I'm rather fond of the star-within-a-star detail.
The shop sample shows a suggested border that creates an on-point box appearance. I just think all the border ideas are so clever! They perfectly complement each block. But... I can't really envision the finished product: what will all these disparate elements look like when assembled into a quilt?

I now have 3 months worth of patterns and fabric to sew up (didn't even cut into April, since I knew I would be missing the May meeting). Due date is July 20. Let's get a-sewin', see if I can get back to paying just a buck for each of the remaining blocks.
