Some quilt block stuff & a giveaway!

Recently I signed up to be a part of a group of women (I think it is all women..hrmmmm) and join the Busy Little Quilting Bee. This group is set up so that one or two people mails out packages of fabric each month to all of the other members and those members then construct quilt blocks from the fabric and a set of instructions. We are in month one and I managed to polish off my blocks today. Now, I've never done "wonky" blocks and I am a bit nervous since I have really only been sewing for a couple of years, but here they are:

For Autum



For Dana (you all have to go to her soap shop and buy some of her goat milk soap...the citrus basil is especially divine!)
In other sewing news, I'm start up a giveaway this week for a d4 shirt. I would like to come up
a snazzy name for them. Anyways, please leave a comment with your name for the d4 shirt (seen in the post below this one). You can pick the size (kids sizes only) and it can be for either a boy or a girl (I'll change the fabric up for either one). You can get 3 extra bonus entries if you post about it on your blog. Remember to send me the link so I can add your 3 extra entries!

Giveaway will end next Monday, September 29th at midnight.

"To the Power" Ts.

LOVE your blocks. The only sewing I manage to get done is the badges on my daughter/son's GS/CS uniforms. But at LEAST I get that done.

Kelsey said...

The blocks are gorgeous. I'm in awe!

What about "Pick Your Power" Ts? I don't know. . .

Amelia Sprout said...

Exponentially anything sounds good.

"To the Power of N Shirt"

Still like Christy's Exponentially Cute the best thought.
