I'm playing a little catch up here! I finished my June block for the Two's Company Quilt Bee while I was on retreat at Gruber's. This "block" is a strip that's probably about 40" long. The little block below is a signature block (before I signed it) that Andrea asked us to make. What a great idea. I wish I had thought to do that with my blocks so I could add them to the back of the quilt. You can read my post about it on the Two's Company Quilt Bee blog by clicking here. You can read Andrea's post, where she described what she wanted us to do here. She wrote a nice tutorial for how to make this block on her blog. If you'd like to access the tutorial, click here.
I've had these blocks done for a while, too. I just haven't blogged them. I blogged them over at Two's Company. These were half-square triangles for Nifty. This is going to be an amazing quilt. Go look at her blog post about it on the Two's Company Bee blog to see what she's going to do. I love it. I seriously might have to make one of these, because I loved the color combination, and I love the look of the quilt.
I put in one little green triangle of my silk/cotton blend that my friend Jackie hand dyed for me. I only had enough to do one triangle. I love that fabric and I can't get more, because Jackie has decided not to work with it anymore. She said it was just too expensive to get the fabric, and she had to sell it for basically what she as in it. It wasn't worth it to her. Bummer!
One more eye candy for you:
I meant to show you a sneak peek at Doris' quilt from our retreat. I don't know how I missed it last time, but it was just amazing! Each block was made from different food fabric. And she used Eric Carle's Hungry Caterpillar fabric all around the borders. It was very cool. So bright and colorful! All her food fabrics coordinated so nicely with the border fabrics. I told her she better watch out, or I might steal this one from her. Really awesome!
Okay, next time, I hope to show you my goodies that I got on retreat. I photographed them today. We'll see if I can get them downloaded now for you!
Until next time,
