This month I only ended up having to make one bee block (not quite true, I made one really early back in September.) This block is for Megan (hehehe922) in the Quilting newBEES
group and is a modified Carpenter's Wheel, free pattern can be found HERE
. This is a 24" block and if it looks familiar to you, it is laid out just like the Swoon pattern
by Camille Roskelley, though it looks the same, the construction is completely different. This block is constructed purely of half square triangles and squares and that is it! It honestly went together way quicker than I imagined it would, and is quite the stunning block! Megan is going to have a fantastic quilt!While photographing this block, my husband caught sight of it and said "Wow, that is an awesome block. Do we get to keep it?" I explained to him, that no, it wasn't for us, and was shipping off to one of my bee members, but I can honestly say this is the first time he has expressed that reaction. I might just have to make some blocks for us!
On a random side note, the other night we were traveling home from the in-laws and upon seeing this glowing sight, I made my husband pull over to take pictures. Yes, these people have their yard decked out in nothing but Halloween decorations. I have to admit, my son and I were in awe! That is a lot of work for Halloween, but it was really neat looking! Can you imagine trick or treating in a neighborhood decked out like this? I think that would be pretty cool.
