Three Down...Three to Go!

Three bee blocks that is....still working, but making progress. It's going to feel so good to be caught up.
This is Alissa's block. Her inspiration was a woven wall hanging. I think this block should be a whole quilt. I love it.
Nettie wanted a log cabin house block and sent wonderful prints with a fairytale print as the focus fabric. I made mine with a big picture window so you can see the owl and the pussycat in their living room!
Personally, I love their eclectic decor...a boat sofa and such deep orange shag carpet that the kitty can dip her paw in it!
Lastly, Rita wanted a traditional log cabin. I played with value and did it up with the traditional dark and light sides of the cabin.
Sewing, sewing sewing....yipeee!

Beautiful! and you're right, the first one could be a mini quilt all by itself

Wonderful blocks! Love the first one... I want to make a table runner like that! Hurray to getting caught up too... my mom was a Godsend and spent last week helping me finish up my studio and completing 7 months worth of bee blocks I'd fallen behind in... can't thank her enough!

Ack! I love the owl and the pussycat!!! That's awesome awesome awesome. (I like the others too, but the cat looks so, I don't know, languid? That block rocks!)

Carol said...

Wow, your blocks all look great. I love the log cabin one best (because I like red anytime).

I really love Alissa's block - I can see this as a ribbon of colour running down one third of a quilt panel. Oh the thought just has me salivating. Well done.

I agree, I think Alissa's block would make a wonderful quilt. Love the red and white and fabrics with text in them too!

ooooo nice blocks!

oh wow, that middle one brought back memories of the poem!

the owl and the pussycat went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat.....

haven't read that one in years!
