So sorry!

So I got behind, really far behind actually on my bee committments and I'm truly sorry. I finally dug out my fabric, sewing machine, cutting mat etc last weekend and finally found time to work on my blocks today. Thankfully my month was October (I love all the blocks I've gotten so far!) so I didn't have to worry about it but September was still looming over my head.

But not anymore!!!!

The task was stars and I immediately knew I wanted to make a wonky one because I love wonky stars :). From there the red, white and blue color scheme seemed best fit in a flag block.

I don't normally use batik fabrics but I really like them in this block.

Since I was on a roll I also knocked out my blocks for November. My goal, is of course, to avoid ever getting behind again!

Gretchen asked for squares in squares and I have to say these blocks were quite addictive!

All of the blocks look great - and I love the ones you made for me. I was hoping that people would find them addictive and everyone has been so generous with the multitudes of blocks I am getting. Thanks!

I love the flag block! Also, I agree the squares were addicting :)

Aren't the fabrics beautiful that everyone is sending? And the blocks are really showcasing them.

It seems like you are settling in now. The blocks look great. I especially like the wonky star. =]
