First up is my bee block(s) for Stash Bee, which have been done for at least two weeks, but my rule is I can't show them here until they are in the mail. Luckily I was able to get to the post office yesterday and they are on the way to this month's queen Toni. The block we were requested to make was a Wonky Cross block, in the colors of yellow and grey. I didn't have much grey in my stash, but I found a cool dot fabric at my LQS. The first one I made ended up looking more like an "X" than a cross.
Since that block didn't work out like planned I made a second block with the colors reversed and it turned out much better. It looks like a cross (yeah!!)
Since I really didn't have any use for the first block I emailed a photo of it to Toni to see if she could use it. and she said yes!. So both blocks are headed to Houston. I can't wait to see what she makes with them. I've seen some of the other blocks and they all look pretty cool.
I also finished my first quilt for 2015, and it is very cool. Now the problem is I can't show you the front of it, because the pattern hasn't been released as of yet. The pattern is called Tessellated Leaves and it is by Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl. It was a fun project and you will be able to see my version of it on January 29th and I will tell you lots more about it. There is a blog hop starting on the 25th on Yvonne site. I can't wait to see what the other testers made, But I wanted to count this one as complete since it has been a slow start this year. So here is what I can show you.
Now what is really cool is that I've completed two of the five goals I set for myself for January, and I'm hoping to get a couple more of them done next week. So it might be a slow start to the year, but at least the wheels have started.
