Lava and Broken Dishes!!!

First let me thank all of you for my Boken Dishes Neptune Style blocks.  I also belong to the BEE Neptune Bee and had them make the same block for me.  I plan to put it all together first chance I get.  I know this block was no challenge at for all of you but simple is sometimes nice.  This is going to be a great quilt!

Here are Toni's Lava blocks.  Hope they are not too wonkyfied for you!  I didn't try to make them uniform at all so how they came out was just as they were when I cut them.  I had to put some purple lava in there.  Lava is sometimes purple, right?  Anyway I hope you like them Toni.  Your quilt should be fabulous.

Toni's Bullseye Block for September

I'm glad I joined the group this year.  This has really taught me to think outside STEPH'S BOXY NOGGIN!!!! All the blocks so far I've never done before and this Bullseye block was fun.  I like the whimsiness & simplicity of this block!!!  Can't wait to see the final outcome of the quilt...should be way cool!!!

Advice on Toni's blocks

Here's a pic of the back of a block. Be sure to trim away to 1/4 inch of the underside of the circle after you sew each new circle on. This keeps you from having 4 layers of fabric, which would make quilting more difficult.

For Toni in the kc scrappy bee

I don't know about you guys, but I can never sleep after a KCMQG meeting. Last night, I decided to whip out Toni's blocks before going to bed. I made a daybed quilt out of these years ago with some of my 30's reproduction fabric. These are one of my favorite things to make. So forgiving, so liberated. With the black background, they're really cosmic. I love em. A lot.

Enjoy, Toni! Thanks for a fun assignment this month!
