I made two blocks for John for the bee inspired group. This is the second one. I really liked making these blocks, they were really easy to put together and I like the way the pattern looks when it's laid out with the rest of the blocks. I'm tempted to add this to my list of future quilts.

(Apologize for wierd formatting- I uploaded one pic directly from flickr and the other from my harddrive.)

Barb's block

One of the two blocks we had for July was for Barb. She wants to make a wonky bento box/log cabin so she requested a 1/4 log cabin. I had the hardest time making it wonky. While I'm not so much of a traditional quilt block girl, making things intentionally NOT straight was hard for me. I suspect that mine will be one of the least wonky of the groups. By the time I was done I was kinda getting the hang of it, but of course I ran out of fabric.

You can visit the rest of the group on flickr.

Donna's Block for the Bee Inspired Group.

Lots and lots of sewing at my house this weekend, yay! Sadly, no pictures of any of it yet so you'll just have to wait. Meanwhile, I realized that I had never posted a picture of Donna's Block for our Bee inspired quilt group.

Donna wanted stars and she sent a variety of blue and gold fabrics. She's planning to do an irish chain type of quilt with stars in the open areas. It should be stunning.

I'm pretty pleased with the way this one turned out. There is one pair of points that aren't so lovely, but the rest are pretty crisp. Just goes to show, practice does make perfect!
