Last month’s block was designed by Allison of Cluck Cluck Sew and you can find her block tutorial here.
And here are all of my blocks thus far. They are looking so cheerful all together. I’m starting to work on ideas for assembling. I can’t wait to see how Jackie assembles hers. And, can I just say here, isn’t it fun to see how different the same block looks just by using different fabrics?
And while we’re on the subject of quilt blocks, here are a couple for a new quilting bee that I’m a part of called The Bees Knees. This month the quilt is for Sherri and she sent us each a fat 1/8th of Monica’s Happy Mochi Yum Yum and asked for a 12″ block.
It is so much fun to see the blocks people come up with and there are already some cute ones. You can see the progress at the blog which as been oh so cutely designed by talented Shari of Doohikey Designs. (Who also has a crazy cute new fabric collection for Riley Blake called Dress Up Days. Man, some people are just talented.)
I also made this block for Sherri. I’m not trying to be an over achiever, I swear. Here’s the story. Sherri said she wanted a 12″ block, and gave some ideas of things she likes, one of them being houses. I loved the big yellow print she sent and thought it would be a cheerful sun above a little cottage. So that is how this block came to be. But seeing that the other blocks submitted are all star blocks, I felt like this would be too much of an outlier, so I made a quick star with the rest of the fabric so it looks more cohesive. But I’ll still send the little cottage to Sherri as a little bit of extra love.
Next month is my turn. I have some ideas but I need to start cutting fabric!
