I'm Making Blocks...I Really Am!

Three more to go and then I'm caught up. I think I've said that before. Will I ever catch up? My bee friends have been so patient. I keep expecting that angry email saying, "so...are you making my block, or what?" It hasn't come yet, but I deserve it!
Here are the latest that are in the mail.
Nettie's is an free pieced chevron. Her inspiration photo was the cutest baby in this little striped outfit with a strip of ROYGBIV fabric. This is my interpretation. It's going to be one cute quilt!
Heather wanted mini improv blocks. Love her fabrics. These are teeny tiny blocks!
Finally for Cheryl...geese, geese and more geese. Don't you love all the configurations you can make with flying geese!
I can't celebrate too much, have to stay motivated to finish those last three!
Have a happy Friday! See you when I get back from LA!

That improv chevron is something special! I love it. I'm trying to wrap my head around it...Did you start with a triangle, attach strips (alternating sides) and then square up when you were done?

Ethne said...
