I am still creating for my Canadian bee mates. Every month, a new challenge! (And I keep promising myself I will get the sashing cut for the blocks they made for me, stay tuned on that one).
July was Pam from Mad About Patchwork, who sent us some fabrics to base a scrappy strip around, which will become the Modern X block (go here to see her progress). I tried to go slightly bluer and slightly greener with my fabric selections, plus added the dark grey, and I like how it turned out. I didn’t think I had any of the taupe, but I found a charm square I could add to the mix.
August was Patti from Retired to Quilt, with a quick Woven block. This should be a fun layout.
September is Janet from Caribou Crossing Chronicles, who asked for sparkly union jack blocks. I discovered, however, that my stash seems to hold a lot of blue plus white or blue on blue, so this was the only blue fabric I could find that included other colours (yes, the red and blue are reversed, she said that was ok!).
And I signed up for the Little Quilts Swap hosted by Sarah Fielke and Amy Lobsiger, so I received the book in the mail on Monday and am patiently stalking my partner for clues. I think I have a good concept and will sit down and cut out the fabrics in a week or so.
