After a personal hiatus from crafty projects, I got back into my Quilt Studio today. Our Bee has decided to start another challenge. One person distributes a 4-1/2″ square of fabric to everyone and the challenge is for each of us to make a 12″ (finished) block with the square and bring it to the next Bee monthly meeting.
This is my finished block – and the 4-1/2″ square is the one in the center. I’m pleased with the end result. The block is Block 8 – August – from Thimbleberries Big Book of Quilt Blocks, by Lynette Jensen. I chose August because it is the birthday month of the recipient.
Next month is my month to bring squares to everyone. I have a fabric temporarily picked out, but I will give it another few days to decide for certain. Everyone expects me to bring something green, but I think I will surprise them.
