This past weekend I whipped up 6 blocks for John. May is John's month for the Buzz Cuts virtual quilting bee. The fabric he sent out was such fun to work with. Around block 5 I started to lose my creative juice. I took a break and was able to come up with a 6th block. John wanted blocks in varied sizes (6.5", 9.5" and 12.5").
And, finally, last night I made Chen's block for AQB1. Chen sent out fabric from the much coveted Mendocino line by Heather Ross. I think the purple-y octopi fabric was my favorite. I wanted to keep the fabric pieces as whole as possible so that the patterns were visible. I added a bit of applique and really like the simplicity of the block.
I still have Colleen's block to make (PTQB has 2 participants for May). I've got some ideas brewing and should be able to get it done this week. Then I really have to concentrate and finish up my partner's Mini Quilt in a Bag (due May 31st).
