For Cristina From Nikki

Here are your blocks, my friend! They were fun to make. I'll let you trim them to size. Didn't wanna mess them up!

Pictures of the blocks that are for my month, July!! I've already started getting the blocks back from my lovely bee members. They look lovely ladies! It's going to be a great quilt! Thank you!

I have made this pattern before, although it was a smaller sized block.

I hope this works for you! :)

Quake Quilt for Nikki

In June, I'll be kicking off Round 2 of the KC Scrappy Bee. Want a sneak peek of what I have in mind?

I don't know about you, but I've got scraps coming out of my ears. I'm determined to chop them all into strips & use them to make scrappy quilts. I'm trying very hard to shop less & stop hoarding my fabric so much. This quilt is an attempt towards using what I've got.

My friend Ali in the lovely linen bee made a tutorial for this quake quilt. I fell in love with the process & end product, so I've decided to enlist my KC Scrappy Bee friends to help in making a quake quilt of my own.

To test it out, I've made a baby quilt for my cousin in Mississippi who is expecting baby boy #2 in a couple months.

I'm a little undecided on the layout of this baby quilt, though. Which looks best to you all?

Option 1:

Or option 2:

Let me know soon... I'd like to get it quilted & finished this week. I'm planning on bringing it to the next kc modern quilt guild meeting. Gotta hurry!

Block for Ale, group 2

This is for Ale in Group 2 (GoldWillow).
I was nervous doing it as it was totally different to the only other Dresden plate I'd done (Lily's Quilts QAL).
It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
