Not a lot on the go today, i've had a monster headache for the last couple days and being hunched over my machine hasn't been helping any.
But i did manage to get another one of my bee blocks done.
This one's for Peggy who asked for Christmas blocks in a style of our choice, but referred to this block as one that she liked. My Christmas colours are not really the norm and i'm hoping that she likes it! I really enjoyed making this block and i will definitely be making it again! And i think i know what fabric will be my starting points for the fussy cuts... hoping to show you all soon, it's in the mail!
After spending the morning making that block i quickly realized that machine sewing wasn't going to be my friend today. Time to bust out the AMH hexies. So this is what the rest of my day looked like...
The progress on these is painstakingly slow, but i'm enjoying it! I picked up the Square Dance panel in blue and the larger squares are perfect for 12 inch blocks. I'm thinking i might pair the smaller squares with squares of hexies to make a 12 inch four patch block... did that make sense? Anyway, i'm hoping to make a bit more progress with this one, i'm probably delusional, but i'd like to be doing the hand quilting on this one this fall.
It's okay... you can laugh, i'm trying hard not to!
High fives for having my bee blocks finished through September!xo snips
Progress has stalled on the Indian Summer quilt... those feathers people, i will find a way to make them work! I think my next border is going to be one of Tula Pink's + blocks from her City Sampler book. Or triangles. Some simple vertical stripes? I seriously have no idea...
