Block Update

Yikes! I just realized I missed posting my September block - a Union Jack, using the tutorial from Molli Sparkles. I'd been wanting to make this block for a while, so was glad to be able to make one for Mary. I love the shape and size of this block too.

Of course, the October block for Anne is hush-hush, but I did get that done and sent off, and it was fun to try her tutorial.

For November, I tackled another pineapple block for Elizabeth. We were in the Always Bee Learning Bee together, and I got to make one for her there a few months ago. Though kind of intimidating from the looks of the pattern, this one went together without much stress. And I really like the parchment Elizabeth sent the pattern on - works terrific!
So I think I'm caught up, thanks to a guild retreat this weekend. I'm exhausted, but sure enjoyed sewing pretty much non-stop for 2 days!

  1. Love the pineapple block - I want to do those with scraps one day. I also like the contrasting colors of the UJ; the houndstooth just pops off the block!

  2. Thanks, Debbie, for making my block (and for sending a signature block!). It is beautiful, and up on my design wall, as I write this. Loverly!!
