This month we're making blocks for Danielle at Petit Elefants and she's all about squares, squares and more squares! She's sent us a mix of fabric from Wonderland, Hunky Dory, and Tweet Tweet ... plus a little Kona Ash. The blocks can be any size between 4" or 16".
I am actually quite pleased with my first block. I got the little chick centered in the middle and I really liked the fresh colors that Danielle chose!
The second block is where I ran into a little trouble. I found a little Wonderland in my red scrap bin and used it for the final piecing around the block.
I was reasonably happy with it, when I noticed a spot up in the top right corner.
It looks like it's bleached out ... and there's no way I could send that back to Danielle ... so I added an extra strip down the right side to cover it up ... it was an acceptable solution.
With the final block, I was looking to feature the 'tree' in the center.
I really do enjoy making the blocks for the bee (now I just need to finish them about a week earlier ;-).
Oh ... and the minor explosion ... a Dr. Pepper can in the spare fridge (no one in this house even drinks the stuff). Glad I got the blocks finished tonight, because I have a whole different project now to work on tomorrow night.
All the best
