Solidia (aka Solihubb) wanted to make a bright orange and pink stripes quilt for her daughter. She had us use this paper pieced pattern: Ribbons Two block from Quilter's Cache. Is it pretty? I even got lucky with my corners and didn't trim the four squares so I actually ended up with a blocks that's 12.5" square.
Jane (aka Tessophia) recently had a little girl, Lucy, who's fighting her way out of the NICU. She's doing well and Jane asked us to make string blocks for her. She sent great 30's repro fabrics and I added a few more from my stash.
The total block is 12.5". For each quarter, I just pieced together the strips and trimmed it with my 6.5" square ruler. I think it was a lot easier than paper piecing!
Terrie (aka chocolate is the best medicine) sent a pattern for these little butterflies for her daughter's quilt. The prints (from Bubblegum Basics) were super cute and the complete block is 10.5" unfinished, and the butterfly alone is 6.5" unfinished. She sent a diagram but the pattern didn't have really have cutting/sewing instructions, so I wrote and posted some here.
Susi (aka daveandsusi) is having us make blocks for her daughter's quilt. She requested a princess/fairy tale inspired block and I figured she needed a fairy! I got the pattern from Paper Panache since it was too cute to pass up. The whole block is 12.5" unfinished with the fairy part of the block just 6" finished.
So, do you have any favorites of bunch?
