This month, Becky is our quilter and she chose for us to do Lily's Quilts' LynneBobSquarePants block, which was fun to work on. I've been wanting to try this block for a while, so it was nice to get to try it out...though, I made several mistakes along the way and had to rip out my stitches several times on the first block. I think I was seriously lacking in caffeine when I worked on these blocks, because the tutorial is super easy to follow. The fabrics for these blocks come from The Quilted Fish's new Delighted collection.
Katie is working on a Christmas quilt and her fabric choices were great. She sent a wonderful assortment of holiday fabrics and I decided to do a block with presents. When it comes to the holidays, I'm one of those geeks who enjoys wrapping presents and buying cute wrapping paper and all that, so it just felt appropriate. I really enjoyed sketching out this block and putting it together, and I have to tell you...if you like this cute little block, I'll be sharing a tutorial for this one as a part of the 12 Days of Christmas Sampler blog hop next month, so stay tuned.
This month, Sabrina asked for some simple paper-pieced string blocks, using some of Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane collection. I had an especially rough day on the day I made these blocks and I found ripping the paper off the back to be super therapeutic. It's funny, I have a bunch of Nicey Jane in my stash and I have a hard time finding the right project for it, but I really like how these string blocks look. Hmm...perhaps a future project...
I also made some progress on my baby quilts this weekend (okay, on one of them) and I'm hoping to share the process with you all tomorrow. Have a great day!
