Oh yes friends, I am aware that we are a hop, skip and jump from August, but I promise, none of these blocks were actually late, I just don't have the blogging time that I wish I had, heck any free time these days would be so nice. Oh well, someday... enough whining, on to the blocks!
The first two are Tokyo Subway Map Blocks by Elizabeth Hartman, tutorial found HERE. These blocks are for Megan "hehehe922" in Always Bee Learning, who just had a darling baby boy, congrats Megan! She was so smart to have bee members put together these blocks for her, if I had to make this quilt, all those squares would drive me NUTS!
These square blocks are for Valarie "Between Quilts" in the Modern Blocks Bee. She let us pick from 4 blocks in the Modern Blocks Book, and I chose Pinball Machine found on page 136-137. The block looks kinda wonky in my picture, but I promise, it isn't, maybe it is just an optical illusion? The three little ones below are just free form blocks that I made for her in various sizes. Her finished quilt will be for her son and will consist of lots of these types of blocks. I think it will be so adorable and grow with him so well!
Last up are these two Granny Square blocks, tutorial found HERE. They are for Hilary "kalanchoe612" in Bee Connected. I honestly wanted to keep these blocks so badly, they are gorgeous! She had us leave them untrimmed, which I honestly thought was GENIUS! This will be a beautiful quilt, can't wait to see it finished, and now I want to make one myself!
Hope you are having a wonderful summer!
A feisty mom designing, sewing and blogging her way through everyday life!
