December block request

Hi all,

I know it is early but December is coming up and I know how busy everyone gets.  I thought I would get my request out early so that you can work on it now instead of getting behind when you get swamped in the Christmas rush.

I would like you to make me a 12.5 inch wonky house block.  When I say "wonky" I don't necessarily mean that the house has to be lopsided.  What I mean is that I want you to use your imagination, creative juices and fun fabrics to make me a zany house block.

You can make me your own house, or a neighbour's house that is just too cool.  You can make me an apartment, an igloo, a houseboat, a cabin or a bungalow, split level or duplex.  Or even a mansion or castle.  I would love if you would put extras in - like landscaping and people.

Or animals...


I thought of sending out fabric so that there would be a piece the same in all the blocks, but decided against that as I think it would be too limiting.

Have fun with this one!  If you absolutely need a pattern, let me know and I'll find a few to choose from.

November Block from Brenda

I was over the top impressed with the instructions.  Amazing to the T.  enjoyed.  It over whelmed me at first sight, but was impressed with the results.  Thank each of you ladies for this chanllenge.

Blocks received.

Just a note to let Elisa and Beebee know that I have received their quilt blocks.  They are wonderful, thank you so much.  I will try to post a picture of them on my design wall sometime this weekend.  I will first have to take down/finish up the quilt that is currently on there, though.

Karen and Nathalie's blocks

I will mail these blocks out tomorrow.

Nathalie - I was worried about all those 1/2 square triangle blocks amd little 9 patches but this block went together very easy. Hope you like it.

Karen  - your churn dash is inspiring me to make a quilt for myself using this block and my 1930's reproduction fabrics.

The blocks I have not received yet are from San-Dee and Liz.

Enjoying Life, 

Nathalie's November block

this was a fun and challenging block to construct.  I hope you like it Nathalie!  I will post it this week.
It looks crooked but it is really square.  For some reason my camera will not give me a good shot of it.

Hugs to all the bees.

Sorry for the delay!

I am finally working on Karen and Nathalie's blocks today. I hope to have them in the mail tomorrow. Also, can the sewer of the following block please let me know who you are? I have names to go with the rest, but am still waiting on 2 blocks. Thanks, Elisa

November blocks

I received the block from Elaine and put it in with some blocks that I have been making.  Thank you Elaine.  As you can see it fits right in.   I can't wait to get the rest of the blocks on my wall and then try and make a decision on setting this quilt.  At one time I had them on point - that will be one huge quilt if I do that - then I thought about sashing - that is still on the table - the other choice is to just set them together side by side.  So, stay tuned and see how this all plays out.
