Week 4-Simple Sampler Quilt A Long & Bee Blocks

So, this is what I did this week....on my days off from work. These are week 4 blocks from the Simple Sampler Quilt A Long.
This week Amy had us doing a log cabin and a mosaic block. My mosaic needs work, but it's good practice. Below is a picture of all the blocks so far. I'm loving this. Unfortunately, my next day off isn't till thursday, so I probably won't have time to "play" with the next set of blocks till then...can't wait to see what's next. Here are a couple of Bee blocks that I completed this week. First up are small pinwheels using Oz by Moda for Nichol [Rosey Little Bee].


And finally a Wonky Star for Claire {Scraptastic Bee}. Claire sent us the center block and white and we added the fabric points. I really enjoyed this one and have added it to my to do list.


This month is my month for the Coast to Coast Bee and the ladies over there are making my son large pinwheels using 2 quitar fabrics I supplied and kona white. I'm so excited about this and so is my son...hopefully, he'll have a completed quilt for a Christmas gift this year:). I still need to pick out a block for my daughters "future" quilt. { Gotta take care of the kiddies first}. October is my month over at Rosey Little Bee, so I'm thinking that'll be "her" month, too, though I won't promise it as a Christmas gift.
Well, I'm off to work on the next set of bee blocks... Liz [Scraptastic Bee-August] sent some Alexander Henry Owls print fabric and asked for wonky/funky square in square blocks. She mailed her fabric early since she's away the later part of this month, so it's a perfect opportunity for me to get ahead for the month of August, since I should be busy getting my daughter ready to go to college and my son ready for his sophmore year in high school.
Till next time,
Susan
