To start with, here are the finished blocks I did for Brit Bee's Miss May (Trudi) who asked for Lynnebobsquarepants blocks and sent us some lovely "Giddy" fabric to work with - miraculously most of the triangles vaguely match! Thanks fellow bee members for all your tips on working with half-square triangles - I can't wait to see what the finished quilt looks like!
Then we have Miss June (Fiona) who sent us some gorgeous vintage inspired fabric and asked for disappearing-9-patch blocks. Rules are rules so no photos of the finished blocks yet, but here is the siggy block so you can see a little glimpse of some vintage sheets that I managed to sneak in amongst the fabrics Fiona sent (possibly I may have broken a rule by publishing this, if so, oops, sorry!)
This was made by her bee members and I love it because every block is different, but the colours and clever use of an image in each block pull the whole thing together.
Now back to the birds, here's another of this weekends makes - this time for a little bird far far away.
It's my pillowcase dress for the charity Dressing a girl around the world. Louise from Sew Scrumptious has organised a massive dress-sewing effort and she now has over 70 dresses ready to send, which I think is just brilliant!
- The autumn leaf fabric was a gift from my neighbour sorting out her loft
- The brown/orange/green print was languishing in my stash box, I just didn't have anything to go with it (until now!)
- The orange binding is vintage, picked up yonks ago at a car boot for 20p
