Weekend Block Madness
Reminder go HERE to enter my first ever GIVEAWAY!!!
It's open until midnight on Sunday 04/10/11.
So this past weekend was the weekend for kiddie parties apparently. My LO was invited to 2 parties! My very kind husband offered to take her to the second one on Sunday by himself to let me sew a little bit.
These are the blocks I finished Sunday:
First I added the outer sashing to this block for Stephanie in the Christmas Bee:
Next up I dove into 2 blocks that I thought were going to be a cinch (as did a lot of the other ladies in our bee) just to find that they were deceivingly easy looking upon first glance! Matching up the top silk strip and the bottom silk strip after adding the diagonal silk strip was not easy at all! I had the luck of being one of the last to try this block so I had read all of the comments and suggestions everyone had made but it still proved to be tricky. I can't wait to see how Anna's quilt turns out with all of these put together!
Next I worked on the block that Melissa requested for the 12 Month bee I'm in. I really like how it turned out.
And finally as a quick gift idea for the party we went to on Saturday I used this quick little tutorial that Carlee from Ladybird Ln posted. It is a fun, fast and (most importantly) CHEAP handmade gift! I made this towel and washcloth for under $10 and it took less than an hour!!!!
Happy Hump Day All!
