Thought I'd share.

I posted a group photo on my blog, but I thought I should share it here as well.

Collected at Guild Meeting
Here's all the Christmas blocks I've collected so far.  Thank you guys for making such fun things for me!  I really love each and every one of them!

Working on lots of projects today. Thanks must go out to Robert Kaufman for the free Kona Charm Square packs we received at the KCMQG for the No Prints Allowed challenge. It is a fun challenge. I need to get busy here...Happy Sewing.

Little 4 Inch Blocks for Jessica

So I've had a hard time with this month's assignment. I SO wanted to make some fabulousness for Jessica, after all, she totally hooked me up when it was my month. She paper pieced this awesome block for me that must've taken a LONG time. It was perfect, I tell you...

But... Most of what Jessica loves according to her inspiration mosaic is paper pieced. This is not my forte.

I tried a couple other ideas. One flopped completely. It involved yo-yos... Didn't turn out so cute... So I threw it out.

I have one other block going for her. It's embroidery, which isn't my strongest suit, either, but I think I can pull this one off... That block isn't finished yet, so I can't show you a picture...

But here are 7 little 4 inch blocks. Some are wonky log cabins... some half square triangles and a fussy cut square in a square.

We shall see if time permits me to play upstairs a little bit more this week. I have some fun reindeer fabric that would be great to use...

Merry Christmas, Jessica!

Bee Blocks and Angela's blocks

Whitney and I worked on our blocks together, I think that they turned out super cute.

January is my month and I am already to go! Normally I wait until the last minute but since I accidentally thought that last month was my month, I have been ready for quite awhile.

For my blocks, I would like to do something very similar to what Hannah did her month. I would like the basic square in a square. Since I am not a huge fan of scrappy quilts, I have included all the fabric. Please use only the fabric I have provided (you can keep any scraps left over) I would like the gray fabric used at least once and no wonkiness please.

For the size: I would like a 12'' finished square OR four 6" finished squares OR two 6" X 12" finished squares. I hope that makes sense.

I am probably going to be a little distracted at the meeting so if you see me, please come up and ask me for your block.

This is my first bee so I am so excited to see the awesome blocks that you are going to make me.

Thanks so much!!!!
