Here's what I got done:
I made Month Three of the Designer Mystery Block of the Month... (I promised to do better this year -- #76)
I'm making the original set, in 12 Days, and I'm adding in another in Fruitcake. I was hoping to get the Santa Hats (Month 2) done today, but Steiger has been a bit of a pickle... so we'll see what happens.
These were a little late (for Putting the Bee in Christmas group), but I got Rene's 12 Days Stars done also.
For the Fresh and Funky Bee, Karen wanted citrus colors, and white in squares, rectangles, or half-square triangles. I used this Friendship Scrap Block, but had to improvise a little, because I didn't have enough of the orange or the white... so I had to cut in to the yellow, which meant I didn't have enough to give the yellow its own HST... I hope she likes it. I love those orange flowers.
These are actually the first Drunk Love blocks I have made (though I have done some wonky-ish log cabins before)... she sent scraps, and said we could add from our stash.
I added the Modern Meadow to this one.
And pretty much everything except the solid yellow to this one. I just really wanted to do yellow and gray...and didn't realize until afterward that nearly all the fabrics were from my own stash! (The outer ring is Kona Coal)
Occasionally, little bits of Steiger get in pictures when I'm taking them... (like here, here, and here)... so I decided to just let him in...he's pretty cute after all. :)
In other really exciting news --
The first few blocks have shown up in the pool. I'm in love.
A cartwheel by Kelly.
And a tree by Karrie.
And another cartwheel by Cherie.
And a couple more trees were added late last night...
This one by Amy (the HST Queen)
And Rene with hexies (I adore the "star" on top)
You know, I'm not going to have much to do with actually making the quilt blocks on this one -- but I'm so excited for it. It's going to be the greatest Christmas quilt ever, I'm pretty sure. :)
All right -- back to four-patch pieces for me!
