May Blocks

Can you believe it's almost May already? Time flies when you're having fun!
So this month we are going to play with some shot cottons. I am sending you Moda's crossweaves and Kaffe Fasset's haze stripes. It's hard to see the loveliness in the picture.
I would like squares. Let me show you my inspirations. Have you seen this? How about this? I'm not sure I will manage enough blocks for these, but I do love this too!

So I was thinking of squares of different sizes, 3" , 6", 9", and 12". Make which ever size or sizes fit your vision. In any way that you want- square within square, log cabin, Denyse Schmidt's drunk love, bento box, whatever strikes your fancy! And as wonky or not as you like. (I love the blocks I've been seeing for Tacey) Go for it, improv away, as long as they are square, and have a solid border. (did that make sense? A frame around the edge, doesn't have to all be the same fabric/color, just make the square look, well, square.) And remember to leave me an extra half inch unfinished. I'll be sending a lot of fabric so that you have more options, so I would like any usable pieces back. (though I really wish I had enough to share with all of you!)

OK, I do have a tendency to babble, so please let me know if I am unclear. I will be mailing the packets on Fri. (hopefully)


  1. Just thought I'd let you know that I did receive my packet and they are GORGEOUS!!! Can't wait to work with them:)

  2. Carrie,
    I'm so sorry mine are late. I've been traveling for work, but I've just straightened up my craft room, and I'm getting started on them now. Hope to have them in the mail on Monday.
