A week behind

I'm a week behind with my posts. I finished these blocks weekend before last, but with how busy I've been with teaching this semester, I didn't get to posting last week. So here are the blocks I made for my quilting bees for September.

This one is for Lisa at The Blue Dress for She sent a bunch of fabrics and asked for 10.5" scrappy blocks that used all the fabrics and had at least one star. I had a lot of fun playing on the proportions of the wonky stars and I really like all the little pieces. I've been sketching more ways to play with the proportions and I think I'm going to make a mini quilt like this with some Neptune fabric.

And this one's for Viv (aka Highway Cottage) for Sew Kid at Heart. She sent these flannel fabrics for her son's quilt. The block is huge (15.5")!! I had a little trouble keeping my seams an even 1/4" with the flannel, but I'm still happy with it and it's been sent all the way to New Zealand!

I almost finished a spooktacular quilt this last weekend and I'm excited to post about it! Since it's been rainy and cloudy, I'm going to wait till I have the binding on and take some sunny daytime photos.
