I belong to a quilting bee group...
and I have been a very bad bee. So
this month I made a promise to myself... kind of a New Year's resolution.
I am trying to catch up on my blocks.
Here is my first block...
The last couple of blocks I have made for the bee group were
the free form modern quilt blocks...
which for me, were very stressful... nothing "freeing" about it!
So when I saw a paper pieced block... I thought I was saved!
But I was oh so wrong.
This little bugger took me about 4 hours to make.
Every seam stressed me out.
So, when I moved on to the next block
I was elated to see that it was a simple Churn Dash block.
Simple and sweet!
So I made two!
I just used solid background fabric for the half square triangles.
I didn't want to use the background fabric provided because I
was afraid it would look too busy and also the fact that the directional fabric
would be all wonky. These blocks are for Trish.
I don't think I ever shared the wonderful pincushion she had made and sent to
me over the holiday's.
Isn't she so cute?
Here is another block I started for January... for me.
I am using Lakehouse Dolly Dresses panel to make a monthly block.
Probably not as extravagant as this one... but the same idea:
Did you play in the Rehab over the weekend too?
