quilting bee blocks

block for Jessica

It seems that the only thing I complete on a monthly basis are quilting bee blocks. It probably has something to do with the fact that I they are for someone else. If they were for me, I'd be slacking. The first block is for Jessica. She asked for wonky stars, which I've never made before, but were fun and easy.

block for Kelly

Kelly sent fabric from the Sweetwater Pure line. She asked for triangles, straight lines, pinwheels. You can see her inspiration here. I came up with this block are looking at many different blocks. I'm sure there's a pattern somewhere, but I just made a bunch of half-square triangles and then put this together. As I've mentioned before, I really dislike triangles, but I think this actually came out pretty nicely.

Hopefully I'll be back here on Monday to give you more info on an auction/sale I'm working on to benefit our Light the Night Walk for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Our team raised over $6,000 last year and John is hoping to raise $10,000 this year. We have a long way to go, but I suppose anything's possible! Have a great weekend!
