May's nearing an end

Phew . . . I made it! 
May's coming to an end 
I finished all of my May bee blocks!

So, here we go ~

gock's frocks asked for 
an awesome wonky string block.
She's put a tutorial up for anyone that's interested.
I didn't want to chance the red being perfectly matched so instead I made two centers for her.

I did add my own red as a backdrop to show the idea she has in store for these blocks. 

JennyGoLightly asked for  
Oh Fransson Mod Mosaic block
I had a bit of trouble with this one.  I adore the smaller pieces in blocks and wanted to use this with the wonk.  I ran out of sashing.  No worries, she'll put these two pieces that I'm sending to make up one block.

breathe and sew asked for
whatever we want with the fabrics she sent.  Oh gads this one was hard.  Not only was this hard but I'm in two bee's with breathe and sew.  She did this for each group.  
What a grand idea.  Here's what I came up with. 
I based this on Lily's Quilts block 
I also had to roll with it to actually make it big enough (only 10") since my HST's were SMALL!

This is a great group.  It's a 6-month group with 12 gals.  
It's two blocks a month but we'll be done so much faster.  So, I like it a lot.  

First gal is breathe and sew 
She asked for whatever we wanted. . yep same gal as above.  Since I had SO many small HST's left I decided to make a few pinwheel's  I {heart} Why not Sew's tutorial and then filled the space with the fabric I had left.  
Crazy I know.

The second gal is whynotsew?  
So not only did I use her tutorial for a block from someone else, I get to sew for HER!
She asked for
a  wonky star block.  I learned from this tutorial a few months ago
I adore these colors!

FairlyMerry asked for
two confetti blocks.  
These blocks my mother {I think} would love.  These were fun to make.  
I even have a few scraps to send back with these blocks

Kreated by Kari supplied us with enough fabric to make a Spiderweb block.  I mainly followed 
{House} of a la Mode's tutorial
I love the colors Kreated by Kari and it will make a great fall quilt.  

 I learned that I'm not a fan of the Spiderweb blocks. I don't really know what about them isn't fun.  Well at least I know now!  :) So, I'll glad it make it for other's but not myself.

There's the low down on May.  I'm so glad that I actually finished my blocks before the end of the month, but as well as before my next business trip.  Which I have no craft ideas to bring with me - yet!


  1. Dang girl, you've been BUSY! I think my favorite is the wonky star, probably because I love those colors. Great work!!

  2. Those blocks are all beautiful! It looks like you had a lot of fun making them all.

  3. Oh, I know you're not a fan of the spiderweb blocks, but they look AWESOME!

  4. I'm lovin' the wonky star block :)

  5. Love the new look of your blog. Girl, you've been busy! Those look great.

  6. Yeah, I don't think you have enough sew-alongs and bee groups. :-)
