These are the latest 4 blocks I have made for the Around the World Quilting bee. I hope the ladies like them
I completed another of my Around the World Quilting bee blocks this week. The theme on this set appeared to be butterflies, so I did a little applique and was quite pleased with the outcome.
I only had one mishap on this one, when I ran the rotary cutter through the corner, so a little hasty patching had to be administered. Oops!
I have to say I am very proud, very proud indeed of my efforts for the next round in the Around the World Quilting bee. After the last attempt which was a little wonky, despite your kind words saying that you thought it was meant to be wonky, I wanted to have another go at triangles.
And whoppity do check it out
Good hey? OK, you don’t have to answer, but you can tell I am impressed with myself.
Now I just need to find time, in between making 4 aprons for the class teachers, making items to stock the shop and coping with all the crazy end of term things, to make the next block.
Until next time…….
You may remember that I am part of this quilting bee. This was block number 5 on someone’s quilt. I haven’t done triangles before and realise now that I really need more practice to get them lined up right because the centre square is a little off. I think it gives the block ‘character’. I hope the recipient doesn’t mind!
In other news I have finally added more items to the shop. Please go check it out!
I am part of a fabulous quilting bee, the brainchild of the clever and oh so organised SummerSadie. If you click on the button above you can see what the other girls have made.
I have made my block with a mix of pinks and green and am thinking summer picnic, but to be honest will be happy with whatever I get back. I am going to spend some time later checking out all the other bee members blogs so I can ‘get to know them’
This is my first big swap and I am super excited about having a go at something different.
Until next time…….
