Ok, now I can do this....

I do solemnly swear that I will make your block this week and get it sent out. 
The holidays took over, but now my life is normal again. 
Sorry about the delay!

December block

Agh! I can't figure out how to turn this darn picture or how to get it below the text. sheesh! I am not good at blogging. Anyway...

Hi everyone. I am mailing out Decembers block today if stamps are in my future. =) I can't wait to see what everyone else has done with the batik fabrics. I think this quilt is going to look great finished. Happy Holidays!

I am feeling so frustrated! Arggg.

I sat down determined to finish Kennedy's block today before the new fabric comes in the mail. What happens?
Somehow, I've ended up with a block that is 11x16.
What the heck??
I've tried adding borders...but it just looks silly. The whole thing is a mess. I'm sorry Kennedy. I'll keep messing around with it, but I hope you like "wonky".

Just thought I'd vent a little! Hope you're all doing well!

Merry Christmas everyone! My fabrics have not been sent out yet, but will be tomorrow or Monday. Since I messed up the first time, I just wanted to clarify that I would like the squares to be 12.5" so that it makes a 12" finished block. I prefer a simple look, so for the theme, I would prefer squares, rectangles, or pinwheels. I am all about crazy loud colors, so if you have any brights laying around, that's great! I am sending the following fabrics, everyone will get the black/white, and either yellow or turquoise.

The 2 that were previously unpictured!

I've been meaning to add these for awhile, but just hadn't gotten around to it.
Here are 2 blocks that I've gotten in the mail that aren't on here yet.

This first one I got quite awhile ago from Jess.  It matches the other blocks so well! 

And this one I got last week from Kennedy along with her beautiful fabric that I can't wait to work with. I love this one too. I really can't wait to see what everything looks like 

I'm still waiting on 2 more blocks, I'll show you them when I get them!

Block 6 or 7

I don't know what number we are on but here is my really late November block. I hope you like it Jacki!

I tried something I have always wanted to try by doing smaller pieces and using four fabrics in one block... I think it turned out ok but I don't know what you will think.

Goodness it was hard but hopefully I will do better next time.

Month 2, Block 1 =)

As I finished this block, called World's Fair Puzzle, I had to question myself, was it to be 12" when we are finished with the block, or when it is in the finished quilt? Most of the patterns I find are for a 12" finished block. Anyhow, I probably have it mixed up, so you might need to chop this down Kennedy.

I didn't have enough fabric to finish this block as it was supposed to be, but I made it work I guess. I didn't have any other fabric that would match! It's called Grandmother's Fan. Hope it's a prediction (just kidding Kennedy!)
