I finished up my last block a little earlier than normal! I really like the way the batiks look.
This beautiful block was the December block for the Aurifil Designer of the Month – Block of the Month and was designed by Pat Sloan. She has a great blog with lots of stuff going on all the time and of course great patterns and fabric! You can find this pattern here.
I laid my blocks on the floor….I had 4 in different colors that I didn’t use. I think they will become pillows.
Then I decided I might as well sew them together. Normally I would do a sashing but this is kind of fun just the way it is. There is going to be a 2014 Designer of the Month coming up soon, you can click on the link to read about it.
I have a feeling I’ll make my 2014 blocks in batik also!
The Sew Mama Sew giveaway is over and the winner is…..Margaret! I sent you a email, congrats!
There were so many great giveaways and I only got to enter a few because I haven’t had much of a internet connection. Of course that means lots of quilting has been going on!!
We have been out of “daytime” internet service for the last week…..bummer (that is probably why I finished my block so fast). This is the last night of the month and we still had plenty of bandwidth between 2am – 8am sooooooo Bob and I both got up last night at 2am to take advantage of it. I had lots of downloads and updates, I’m not sure what he was doing. We ate breakfast at 4am and he is back in bed…..I’ll think I’ll take a nap pretty soon too. Hopefully next month I will have things figured out better and we won’t run out.
