FEBRUARY IS HERE ....

...and with the start of the month the Block-Of-The-Month blocks are starting to be posted ... this month I am the Queen Bee for the Stash Bee Hive #6 . I decided I want to make a hearts and flowers quilt and have asked the other members to make me blocks to go with mine ...


...I had fun making mine x and just hope the others do too xx

Erin over at www.sewathomemummy.com has put her latest block in the "modern meets classic " sew along!! WHEN I had stopped hyperventilating and seeing black spots in front of me !!! I pulled up my big girl knickers and made my block..


..talk about being shoved out of your comfort zone! I am NEVER making it again!...now I have 2 blocks .. wonder what next month will bring xx


The postman has brought me some new magazines to read ..



and some fabric from Justine at www.simplysolids.co.uk these are the fabrics from the stash club for January .. been stroking them all day xxx..


LOVE them x

Off to study the instructions for the next B-O-T-M xx

Keep smiling

Diane xx

You're a very busy lady Diane. I don't quilting, but do fancy it. I've made the odd one for the GCh as they came along that's all.

I have that pattern to do too, but not at the moment.

Your block looks great...sometimes it's the only way to learn if we are pushed a little.

I bet you will have another go at that block some time in the future. Once you're over the horror you'll start to see how perfect it would be somewhere. I was like that with my 54-40 blocks, but a couple of years down the line I'm much more confident with them. I like your idea for the hearts and flowers block.

That 4 point star block looks like a lot of Y seams - well done !!!!

Lovely blocks there Diane. Like you I do not like foundation piecing..
Some nice mail there too.

Oh, Diane!I clicked over to look at the instructions, and went in and looked further, what did I read?
' Put a modern spin on it using fabrics and constipation' ! No, that is NOT what it said- just what I read!

No hope for some of us!

Love your blocks though!

Looking forward to seeing the incoming blocks for your quilt. It is going to look very pretty. Your stash club fabrics are looking good.
