I finally had a chance to sew on Saturday and I was able to get blocks done for both of the online quilting bees I am a member of.
The first block was for the Vintage Sewing Bee. Jane asked for pinwheels, any pinwheels. The wonkier the better. Oh the choices! I really like the look of whirlygig pinwheels, so I followed this tutorial and just improvised on the extra piece in each block and the wonky border. This was my first time doing pinwheels and my first time improvising and I loved both!
I’ve also been wanting to play with matching vintage stripes and vintage flowers together in a quilt, so this was my chance. I’ve been collecting striped sheets and I really wants to do a whole quilt like this.
The second block was for Bee Happy. Abi asked for a spiderweb block, which I have also never done. I loved the grey solid and Abi sent some yummy fabrics to work with and I also included some from my own stash.
I’m excited to see what’s in store for next month!
