Some more blocks for Elaine
Hello, all! Here is my contribution to Elaine's quilt. I got a bit carried away, but I couldn't decide which fabrics to leave out, so she's getting 4 blocks from me! I knew Viv was going to be using some orange, so I wanted to add a couple of blocks to kind of tie it together.
And then, so none of you think Melina was alone in this(maybe something in the water here in Fort Collins?)--My first and second attempts with this block using some 2.5 inch squares. Bottom is wrong, top is right, together they make one sweet little pin cushion on it's way to Texas with the blocks!
I liked this so much, I made three for myself to make in to potholders for my kitchen with some plain 4 patches for the backs. I was chain piecing at this point and boy did they fly!
And last but not least, Elaine, here's a photo of some of my wool circles from you. It will become a pillow for my living room, hopefully sooner than later! Thanks again, they've been amazingly fun to play with and my 4 year old son has been organizing them over and over!
I'm really looking forward to next month's blocks--that's one way to stay on top of the bee--by being a month ahead!
