I seem to be starting more than I am finishing around here- with the exception of bee blocks.
This happy scrappy yellow one is for a special quilt for beebolt.
In our fabulous bag of swag from the Sewing Summit, the kind folks at beebolt slipped in a little ziplock bag of 3" sunny fabric squares and asked us to use it and make an 8.5" block.
The blocks will all come together to make a special Sewing Summit quilt that will be on display next year. How cool is that?
We could add any fabric we wanted, do any design we wanted and use the fabric we were given in any way. You know I am in love with improv piecing these days so it wasn't hard for me to go that route. I added the solid yellow because it makes the block feel warm and happy- something the Sewing Summit was for sure.
So it is soon to be mailed off to beebolt (an online fabric shop) where it will meet it's other friends from the Sewing Summit attendees. Won't this be an amazingly diverse quilt in the end?!
Today I'm happy to send you over to the wonderfully talented Elizabeth of Don't Call Me Betsy. She's got a sleek and modern tote bag tutorial for you- perfect for a Christmas gift. It would be a great gift on its own but think of all the extra goodies you could hide in there before you wrapped it. :) Fun!
Be sure to leave Elizabeth a comment to be entered to win a $25 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop and if you missed any of the other tutorials from the 12 Gifts of Christmas blog hop, CLICK HERE.
