I loved making this sweet block for Amy (Diary of a Quilter). She has the best color choices, always! I love how bright and fun it is. I wanted to make her 2 but I didn't stretch out her prints enough and only had enough for one block. But I love it!
I like the spontaneity of log cabins, but if you don't really plan it out a little ahead of time you might end up tearing out a round like I ended up doing so more of the blue would show once it was finished!
I also finished up two blocks for Amy (Amy's Creative Side). These Echino prints with the crossweave solid is so fun! I've never actually worked with any Echino and now I want to find a bunch and buy it up!
Her quilt is going to be so fun! I can't wait to see all the blocks together.
My mom is here visiting and all of our plans to get a ton of stuff done hasn't really worked out like we thought. We have managed to take care of the littleslouwho and keep the house picked up, so there's that! She did help me get my packets mailed out. She had never done string blocks before so she offered to sew mine up for me! She did a fantastic job of course.
She discovered that the 12" scrapbook paper that I sent out was actually too thick for paper piecing. She did the second block with a 12.5" square of newsprint and that was much easier. I'm so excited to put these together!
So I'm planning on finishing up the last of my bee blocks today and then maybe I'll have something new to show you next week!
