Wow, March really flew by, didn't it? I can't believe it's April already. Fortunately, I managed to keep up with my quilt block commitments!
But first, an update on the Union Jack block I had so much trouble with last month. I can finally claim SUCCESS!:
Granted, it's not perfect. I am sure you can find the flaw without too much effort, but after two failed attempts, I don't really care. I'll take it!
Now on to some new blocks. This first one isn't for a quilting bee, but for a special project that's been organized over on Flickr. I can't share too much more about it yet, but I will soon ... promise! Anyhow, I was tasked with making an improvisational block in shades of yellow. It turned out to be a pretty cute block!
Here are my two blocks for the do. Good Stitches charity bee. We were asked to make "stacked book" blocks (not the official name, but it's what I call them!) in shades of blue, gold & yellow:
And finally, here are two blocks I made for my neighbor Rachel (olivethebeach) over in the Buzz Cuts group. I LOVE how these turned out! I followed a tutorial that Rachel put together on her blog -- you should check it out if you want to make something similar:
So what did you work on last month?
