Quilting Bee Block

I've been admiring the virtual quilting bees that have been popping up everywhere, so I was really excited when I had the opportunity to join one. Sarah of Small Fox organized the Busy Little Quilting Bee, where there are 17 of us. This means that some months we are making 2 blocks for two different people. It's exciting to have more than 12, because it means more than 12 blocks when it's your turn. This block is for Autum of Creative Little Daisy. She sent us the black and gray fabrics, and requested that we put a bright color in the center. I was really inspired by the Gee's Bend quilts and I thought the gray fabrics were perfect for it. This was also my first time using wavy seams, and Kathy's (of PinkChalkStudio) tutorial was great! I hope you like it, Autum. I'm having a really hard time sending this one away. I think I feel the need to make myself a full quilt just like this. Next up is Dana's block. She sent some midwest modern that I can't wait to use. There may be some wavy seams for this block too.

Like it? I LOVE it!!! Those wavy lines are wonderful. I've tried it- it's really hard! I get more and more excited with every block I see. I can't wait to put them all together.
