It's June! And, It's My Turn!

I'm so excited! I can't wait to see what everyone sews with these fabrics. They're on the way to you now. I'm planning to use these in a whimsical quilt and maybe some accessories for my kitchen.

I would love 12" completed blocks, so 12 1/2" with seam allowance. If you're up to sewing two blocks, I'll gladly do two blocks for you. I'd like the chickens to be fussy-cut and featured somehow. Everything else is up to you and your imagination.

You can go modern and fun like this wonky house block with a giant chicken that I made . . .

. . . or you can go with a traditional block like this one with chickens peeking out from each side.

Feel free to cut the chickens as big or as small as you'd like, as long as you can tell they're chickens. I'm sure that I sent way more fabric than you'll need--I wanted you to have plenty of options. Please mail back any bigger leftover pieces.

Under the wire

Whew!  I got these done just in time.  These were a lot of fun to make.  I loved the colors and the simplicity of the design made them quick and easy.
Sorry Carrie, I won't be able to put them in the mail right away.  I have to leave town for a family emergency and won't be able to get them out before I leave.  But, they are done and I will get them to you as soon as I can.
I hope you like them.

May Squares for Carrie

Such pretty fabrics! This first block is a wonky bento box, and it's definitely my favorite. I made one 9 1/2" block:

One 6 1/2" block:

And, two 3 1/2" blocks:

(I apologize that the blue, purple and green stripe is so wrinkly. It wasn't so noticeable until I looked at the pictures, and no amount of ironing would make it look smooth. I'm sure it'll look great once it's quilted, though!)

May blocks for Carrie

It was really fun to play with this combination of fabrics. I hope you like them! The blocks are 9.5" and 12.5" square.
