Two posts in one week? What is going on here?

Don't get too excited!
I am just finding myself with a little more time to sew these days.
So I am going to try to make the most of it!

First up is a Bee block for Suzanne in our Metro Mod Bee.
She sent us most of the fabric and asked for a star,
I just added the coral. I am smitten with this block.

This week's color is ochre.
I was planning on making all star blocks,
but as you can see, my hands had another idea.
I like this too.  I am going to go with it.  
Each subsequent block will have the same components,
but a different layout.
Brilliant!  The same, but not.
Sometimes, I just surprise myself.

AND then . . . 
When I went to my mailbox today,
what did I find but these little goodies from my friend Helen!
She sent them for my hexie charm quilt. 

With a note that said some of these fabrics were older than me!
Hahaha.  I don't think so, but it made me laugh out loud.
Worth the price of admission! 
Thanks Helen!  For the fabric and the giggle.


  1. Isn't it freeing to embrace mistakes. The star on the right looks like it is a ballet dancer!

  2. Love the swap block, great "star blocks" and how big are those squares? great selection of fabrics there! happy stitching!
