Lori requested a fun block with simple novelty fabrics in the center with sports-related, animals, foods, anything a man might like. So here are the two blocks I will be sending for Lori:
This one cracks me up. Blue eyed pigs, lambs, and horses? Hmm!
One of the bee blocks I am supposed to make this month had very specific requests. Here is the block she wants us to make:
She wants four different monochromatic gray fabrics with green and orange accents. I could only find three out of my entire stash! I ended up having to use black and white for one of the fabrics. This is what I was planning on using:
My BQF, (best quilty friend) Robin, to the rescue! We're going to swap fabrics tomorrow at church. She has lots of grays as a result of a recent grandbaby quilt where gray was one of the requested colors.
UPDATE: Here is the block I ended up making:
I am also making good progress on the quilt for my daughter's dorm room. She will be a freshman this fall. I have two long seams left to sew and the flimsy is done! I hope to show you the whole thing in a few days. I love the colors she picked!
And now for a confession. I have been trying really hard not to buy any new fabric unless I absolutely did not have it in my current stash. I was doing pretty good too. This weekend, I fell off the wagon HARD! I bought a whole kit. I have a problem. I admit it. I could not resist. It's summer and camping season! My kit has red background on the borders instead of blue. Red is my favorite!
So what are you working on? I'd love to hear from you and hear all about your projects!
Hey Lisa P! When are we going to get together? I know you have an unfinished quilt top you want to finish and I would love to show you how!
