Busy Month

The last time I posted was Jan. 6th and my resolution then was to finish up and use up. I have done a pretty good job of that this month.

I think I have found my new favorite block. I don't know what it is called but I shared two examples in the last blog. Then I got to thinking about my 2 1/2 inch strips so I cut them into 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch rectangles and made the same block just bigger. In the above example I didn't sash the blocks just turned them so that I still didn't match any seams. It is all brights and I think would make a great kid quilt. 

I work with Diane Long and she just have a new grand baby. She is a big Alabama fan so I made this one for her. I then found her son is not an Alabama fan but the daughter in law is, so I guess that is okay. 

One of the cashiers is having a baby boy in a few weeks, so I made her this one, I am not sure what to name it. It is a simple sashed nine patch. Having the center patch smaller color framed in same light and then using it also as corner stone changes the look completely. 

David and his wife are having a little girl so I went back to my favorite new block again but this time I put pink on one side and lights on the other like a log cabin.  This was Donna Nix's idea and I loved it. I may use it again on quilts for triplets that are due early summer. Definitely something going on at work with all these babies. 

I have still got to finish this one, but have gotten side tracked on a larger size block of another Bonnie pattern, will take pictures later.

Back to stitching and better use of my time
