This was last night’s LAST BLOCK sewn before heading to bed.
I’m loving these little gems. Each one so quirky and fun!
FUN is the main thing here….maybe I’ve sewn my share of stuffy straight-laced quilts during my life time as a quilter, or maybe in my 50’s this is my version of MID LIFE CRISIS ---
But sewing funny blocks out of ridiculous fabrics and strange combos just makes me feel SO ALIVE!
Hello Kitty with Cheddar ((Of course!)) And red batik! Heck YEAH!
Tonya and I toasting our retreat time with root beer floats!
This morning I’m back at it again!
My friend Brenda gifted this lovely piece of Canada fabric to me at the end of our time together in England. I brought it with me wanting to give it a special place, not just put it in the scrap bin for later..and here it is! I’ve paired it with a fun black on white….
Here is my block all sewn:
Tonya hard at work!
Yes, the girl is at the machine and creating wonderful Tonya things. Will take more photos as the day progresses.
She will be heading home to Florida tomorrow. I’ve so enjoyed having her here!
If you are wondering where to find the pattern for Box Kite, this block was just featured in the May/June 2014 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine. Click the Addicted to Scraps tab at the top of the blog for more info.
Feel free to join in with me…I need at least 100 of these! How many more can I get done through the weekend??
I guess we’ll find out!
Happy Tuesday, everyone --- go sew something!
