Michele's Block Update

Hi Ladies!  Hope you are getting to enjoy a 3-day weekend.  Today is my first day off since May 2!  The joys and slight pain of running one's own business, but all is well.   There hasn't been much time in the schedule or room in my brains for creativity the last four months or so.  I had no idea how hard my schedule would become while working with an account I took on six months ago.  That account is finished as of two weeks ago, and blue skies are ahead --- as well much needed time in the sewing studio! 

Pam sent me Margaret's blocks last week.  I just opened the package, and Margaret -- You will love your blocks when they get back to you.   

Carol sent me her batik block, which I received in early May.  I have the batiks ready to go. 

Sometime last month, one of you asked if you could send me one large package of the backed up blocks.  I thought it was Pam when her bulky package arrived, but the package just includes Margaret's blocks.  So, if you know you've sent me a package, please let me know, as I have a mountain of mail to go through.  I'm organizing the studio this weekend and getting ready for a sew marathon in June, and my round robin blocks are top priority. 

Since it isn't pretty to have a photo-less post, I'm taking the opportunity to show off this 93-piece block made for my other bee, One Block Over, back in March.  It wasn't too bad to put together, but that could have been because I only had one block to sew and the bee partner precut all the pieces for us!  How I wish I could have an entire quilt made of this block!  It would be something to cherish.  -- Michele

I am halfway there

I have been busy this week. I finished my triangle quilt, made 4 blocks for the Quilt Block Exchange, turned an extra block into a doll quilt sandwich (ready to quilt) and I got blocks done for two of you in this round robin.

Here are all of Wendy's blocks. I made the right and left ones in the center row.

And here are Michele's Chisholm Trail blocks. I made the one off to the right.

Now I need to get to the post office and get everything in the mail!

As I was uploading the pictures into iPhoto I realiazed that I have now done six of the eleven blocks for the round robin (that includes mine). How is everyone else doing?

TWO DOWN and more......

Helloooooo..... I know....I'm in the doghouse!  Perhaps these two new blocks will redeem me in some! 

Here are the two blocks I made...It's a little difficult to see the white border on the white backdrop, but I hope you like your trees. 

Here is how your quilt looks right now!!!

Your quilt will definitely be a beauty!  Merry Christmas!!!!

A restart

I've restarted these blocks and have sent them directly to Michele. For those who want to get a head start on them here are the basics. They are 10 1/2 inches, made from batiks, the basic patters are triangles, squares and rectangles. I would like a piece of fabric so I can add some squares and triangles in the border to tie it all together. Have fun.
