Friday Finish: Scrappy Blocks

I mailed five squishy packages this week to bring me up to date with my bee block duties.  It's a relief to catch up on September  blocks, finish October blocks and I'm counting these as a Friday finish.

Union Jack for Mary
September's Mid-Century Modern bee block for Mary using the tutorial from Molli Sparkles.  Let me just say it was difficult to part with this block.

Siggy block for Anne
I'm not at liberty to show October's bee block for Anne, but here's my siggy block which gives you an idea of the color scheme.

Scrappy 16.5 inch block
Erica created this tutorial for September's Wish Circle block for do.Good stitches.  Can you see those little pops of Cotton+Steel?  The other two strips of color are Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt and A Stitch in Color by Malka Dubrawsky.

4-Penny Patch blocks
Four patchwork blocks for Kristen's November Wish Circle request in pinks, blues and mustard.  The 4-Penny Patch block tutorial can be found on Rachel's blog.  I really like these scrappy patchwork blocks.

Star block for Susan

This last block is a "do over".  Remember this bee block for Susan?  Well, the envelope arrived in Australia, but the block did not.  I made a replacement block (different block and fabrics) and used an abundance of tape on the package this time around.

Whew!  Good to be caught up again.  
Thanks for stopping by,


  1. I'll be eagerly awaiting my Star block Rene! Thank you- it's gorgeous! This is the incentive I need to make # 12! The Union Jack blocks will make a great quilt too, won't it?

  2. So much good work! (I'm so far behind on just about everything!!) :D

  3. Beautiful blocks. I found it hard to mail off my Union Jack too. I loved it in the end.....
    See you Monday ; )

  4. You have been a busy girl! I'm heading to a quilt retreat this coming Wednesday through Friday, and expect to get caught up on MCMB blocks. Anne's colors ARE beautiful, aren't they?

  5. Got your blocks yesterday Rene'. Thanks so much. They are just right.
