After a nice Sunday afternoon in my sewing room, I've finished a couple more blocks for my quilt bee. These are part of the Quilt in a Box project we're doing throughout the year, where we trade boxes and make a block from each participant's fabric. Today I made the same block for both Janet and Jan, but out of very different fabric choices...
I use Thangles paper to create the HST's and Monique Dillard's Fit to be Geese ruler to create the flying geese units (love this ruler!) The center unit is a Square in a Square block that I just make the old fashioned way.
|All the units for one block|
|A block ready to sew together|
By the way, does anyone know what the name of this block is? It's one of the blocks in the Paris in the Fall Block of the Month pattern, but I don't see another name listed for it. Just curious if anyone knows what it's called.
Sam joined me for a little bit, but I think she was just trying to tell me her bowl was empty. She was rather cranky until I took a break and fed her. (She's on a little bit of a diet and she's not very happy about it.)
|A slightly cranky, hungry Sam|
Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.
