January - March 2016 Blocks from Stephanie

I am getting back on the blogging bandwagon.  I apologize to my beemates for being such a lame blogger.  But one of my goals for this year was to be better at blogging.  So, here I am.  I'm going to catch up from January through March, and then I promise to keep up every month.  I even came up with a tracking system for myself.  :-)

Let's see...January was Elizabeth.  I can't show her blocks, and she knows why.  But these were the fabrics I used for her.  :-)  Love me some Alison Glass.

February was Cindy, and we made some really fun book blocks.  I made these for her.  One of these was for the Sew Sisters bee we are in together, too.  I can't remember which was which, so I'll just post them all here.  So cute.  Such a fun block.

March was Linda, and she wanted these churndash blocks.  And some of these were supposed to be "Gwen Marstoned" up.  Hope they hit the mark.

I made these at a retreat I was at recently.  These blocks made for a little party in my thread catcher bag our retreat organizer put on the table for us.

April is my month.  That always makes me go "eep!"  Don't worry 100-piece paper piecing block for you this time.  More coming soon!

Can't wait to see all these together!

Round Two for February

Good morning. I'm sure i'm the last one to mail these, but I feel better about sending them off now. For some reason I had trouble with my second block. I redid the top section three times before I felt satisfied. 

I changed the text fabric when I found this in my stash. The 'frozen food' text seemed very fitting for the veggie tale fabrics    : )

Mailed and on their way Cindy.

February Blocks Come Late

I finished my blocks for Cindy were completed soon after I got back from my trip. They were fun to make and went quite quickly. I could have made more, but told myself to STOP and get them sent. 

Can't wait to see the completed quilt!

March 2016 Blocks: Miniature Churn Dashes

I went wild for red and darks, then threw in some lime green and bright blue.  This month we were supposed to make miniature churn dash blocks (4" finished) for Linda, who wanted a wonky something or other, here and there.  I switched out some colors but when I looked at the photo, I realized that I'd turned one corner sideways--hope that's all right, Linda.  It was definitely a random event, but you can still see the form of the churn dash, as per your request.
These nine blocks went very quickly and I can't wait to see the finished quilt!
