Stash Bee Blocks

Here are the 2 blocks I finished for Cyndi this month.  Lining up the strips with each cut was a bit gnarly.  I don't do a lot of improv, so this was a bit of a stretch for me, but it came together pretty quickly.   Sam was watching me at one point and about had a cow when she saw me slice with my rotary cutter and no ruler =)

Cyndi asked us where we would want to live if we could move anywhere and why?  A few years ago I would have said southern Italy with barely a pause, but I know I'd be the only one in my family who'd really enjoy that.  Then I thought I'd go "home" to the DC area, but I realized I seriously don't like the traffic or cost of living, so I'd just really like to go back and visit.  I think I'd like to move somewhere closer to family--and since I have family spread all over the US, that is still totally open-ended and vague.  Ultimately, I think I'd be happy anywhere I have cell phone reception, internet access and my sewing machine.

Also, Marti drew #1 for the UFO Challenge this month.  I've got nine blocks to make from thse fabrics.  I think I'll do some strip piecing for all the little 4-patch units (45 of 'em) and take it from there.


  1. You were a lot more adventurous with your curves than I was. I am not really an improv person either, but it was fun.
    I cannot imagine why the rest of the family would not embrace Italy!
    Have fun with your strip piecing!

  2. Those blocks are really great but not probably something I would attempt.

  3. Wow! Those curves are impressive. I haven't tackled curves yet, but it's definitely on my to-do list. :)

  4. These are great blocks this month. I like the colors and it is something different. Great job on getting yours done already. I started mine this morning before work and hope to finish them tonight.


Thank you for stopping by! I love to hear from you. Come back soon!
