Back when I was really stressed about the bar exam and down in the dumps, John of Quilt Dad fame was kind enough to ask me to join Sew Connected 3. I’ve never done an online quilting bee before but I’m so glad I decided to join one! It’s so fun getting someone else’s fabrics and dreaming up a fun block for them. I was starting to get really nervous though. The fabrics were coming from other countries (Thailand and Australia) and had been mailed weeks ago but I had not received them…until this week! Phew.
This is my first block for sew-do-I. This is woven ribbon block. I love the colors of this block. We’re only required to do a single block but I have a fair bit of fabric left and am thinking about making a second one.
Here’s my second block for rocklilly. I love the pairing of Heather Ross’ Mendocino line with some lovely puckery Japanese fabrics.
These two blocks are the big bright spots of my weekend as I have waaaaaaaaay too many neglected errands to tend to. (Laundry, taxes, cleaning….*sigh*)
