Also, your bee mates do not really want you to forget them. I am new to this whole bee thing, but I would presume that makes them cranky.
Okay, my blocks.
Sew South House Block
Jenifer from Ellison Lane Quilts asked all of the Sew South attendees to make a house block for a quilt for the Ronald McDonald House in Charlotte.
Make it Modern Bee Blocks
This month I put together an improv log cabin block for Kelie of Craft Nurse. I am calling this block "I put a bird on it".... (Portlandia, anyone?).
Sami's Quilts and Crafts, requested this block she is calling Mama Goose. Her final design for all of these blocks is pretty spectacular (btw, this particular block is not quite done...).
Lucky Stars Block of the Month
I finished my January Star. I am already looking forward to February. Who knew paper piecing could be so fun.
Look how pretty the practice block and the January block look next to each other...
Lining up the Stars Quilt (working title)
I doodled out this block based on a design my friend painted on the an egg (she does these amazing wax died/painted blown eggs). Then I went. to. town. I need 25 of these blocks to finish this as a throw quilt. I have 10 done and 5 in the hole.
This is on the fast track though. I am anxious to get this on the couch before winter is over.
Because it is pretty.
Would people be interested in a tutorial on how these blocks were made? It is pretty straight forward modification of the basic HST star. I am not sure I can claim to be it's "designer" per se... I am sure someone has made this sucker before. I would be happy to write out how I am doing these blocks if there is interest.
Dad's Tool Roll
That is my week. In patchwork. Exhausting.
We are going to have a friend (who does not sew) coming to visit this weekend, so I do not expect to get a ton of sewing done. Maybe, if I am lucky, I can finish my Dad's present? In between glasses of wine with Amber?
Linking up love!
