Blocks for Alissa

Here you go, Alissa! I was able to get three blocks out of the fabric supply with just a tiny bit of leftovers.

This will be a gorgeous quilt! I love the colors and the design idea.

Our final month!

Hey All!

So I’ll be sending out the fabric for our last month this week.  I’m sending some solids!

12 Squared

I’d like for you to all make me two 7.5″ (small!) quarter log cabins.

Like this! Or these!

I think that I gave you enough fabric, but I’m not sending tons, so if not, don’t worry about it – just make me one block!

On their way

I finally got around to sewing Linda’s blocks last week and had so much fun I just had to sew an extra one. They’ve been ready to go since Tuesday but I only just got around to mailing them this morning. They should be arriving in a few days!

I really loved the gray, gold and pink combo of fabrics, and somehow, unconsciously my last fabric order had the same colors. Isn’t that funny? Thanks Linda for the inspiration!

Anyways, here are the blocks that will be making their way over to you:

I hope they fit in with the rest!

Now I’m all set to work on April’s blocks, bring it on!

My sewing space is finally usable and I couldn’t be happier. On top of that I have energy again! Woohoo!

I finally got around to sewing Chawne’s blocks this week and they’re now out on their way to her. I’m not used to sewing all these little squares together so I hope the corners meet cleanly enough! I was certainly challenged and I like that a lot.

Mailed out finally

I just realized that there are 2 blue squares quite close to each other, oops!

Next up, Linda’s blocks, and I couldn’t be more excited to start working on them. I have high hopes to try paper-piecing parts of the blocks. I printed a bunch of templates the other day and look forward to try them out.

Now I just have to re-read the instructions to make sure I do it like she asked!

Blocks so far

Thanks so much to everyone who has sent along their blocks. I’m especially fond of the ones with the triangles. I appreciate your taking the time to be creative with these. I also think it’s neat that 2 of you ladies used the bird fabric in a very similar block style (I like!). I originally imagined this with big fields of color between some of the blocks but I love how they look edge to edge, too!

These are all of the blocks I have received to date and I’ve emailed each one of you to thank you. If you have sent yours and haven’t heard from me, give me a heads up. Generally I don’t have problems with the  mail but I just want to double check since it’s been a couple of weeks since some of you posted your finished blocks.

Blocks for Linda

After nearly a month of not being able to sew, I’ve been slowly catching up on my blocks.  Maybe I’m just not as quick as some of you or I need your sewing machines [ 😉 ]but my blocks definitely take more than an hour from planning, cutting, sewing and pressing.  Thank you to everyone for their patience.  I really enjoyed working on these Bauhaus blocks.  I think I may draw on this idea in the future!  I hope you like these Linda!
