Judith sent us some lovely scraps to play with and create a wonky chevron block. We each got a colour co-ordinated bundle of scraps (in my case aqua tones) and some strips of grey and white solid. Jude also asked that we might like to add an appropriate scrap or two of our own fabric. I wonder if she'll spot below which fabrics were from my own scrap stash?
I loved making this block. I almost didn't want to stop and Jude almost ended up with a 3ft wonky chevron block!
Next I started on the Bee Blessed blocks which are like a crazy wonky log cabin patchwork. Details of how to do this block here. I started off with green as I had a lot of green scraps to play with. I did get carried away with this block, as I forgot we'd got to sash the blocks in white - so my block was veering towards the full 12.5" without sashing.
Many of these green scraps came from the scrap bag I won when
Nichol had a give away recently.
As I'd have to order some white fabric for the sashing I decided to crack on with a pink block. Again many of the scraps came from the scrap bag I won. Luckily when I was sorted through the scrap bag I found some white fabric offcuts that might just do for the sashing. (That's a job for another day.)
I think it's fun when the central bit is fussy cut.
So once I've sashed these two blocks and made a siggy for my hipBee block I'm ready to post back to Queen Jude.
I didn't link up with Sew Fresh Sewing this month as I only made two things all month. Here I am on the first of a new month and I've already made more things. Looks like my mojo is back! hurrah!
