Tetris #2 & X-Mas Village
Week # 2 block for the Tetris Quilt Along with Melissa at http://happyquiltingmelissa.blogspot.com/2012/07/tetris-quilt-long-week-2.html
I am using 2.5" squares and if a 'dropped block' doesn't fit, I just eliminate it so I have some nice white squares in the mix. I think I will sash these - either a black or black/white tiny pin-dot and colored corner stones. This will make a cute baby quilt.
I am playing with the Christmas Village Quilt Along over at Judy's http://www.patchworktimes.com/. You have to note that there are 4 designers involved and each is contributing a block (or more) each month - so you have to visit each designer, save or print instructions. Once the month is up, those patterns are NO LONGER available! So big girl panties - keep track of your BOM.
I haven't posted anything about the work with the http://www.freespiritfabric.blogspot.com/ Christmas in July Quilt Along - some of you have been commenting on my flicker account posts. I have enough seasonal quilts going, so chose to do this one in black and white with a touch of red. I am anxious to be able to put this one together, but there is still a few more blocks to come - you won't see this one again until it is a quilt top.
The Think Christmas Blog Hop is around the corner - I will be posting on July 30th. And the Pets on Quilts is coming up fast too. I still can't get my furries to get near a quilt - they know they aren't allowed! I may need to borrow someone's pet.
AND we finally got some rain with some horrible lightening! I won Jen's traveling stash box - so as soon as it arrives, I will be posting quickly and quickly passing on - I am heading into vending season, so don't want the box to sit.
