July Brit Bee Blocks

The very lovely Judith from Needles & Lemons (aka Miss July) gave us free reign this month, to make two blocks using the red & white Oakshot cottons she sent us.

I had intended on making one traditional block and one modern block.

But I accidentally cut too many triangles for the first, traditional block I was making, so used the leftovers to make another traditional block!  

What a block-head!

'Nautilus' - Judith asked us to include some of our own red fabric

'Card Trick'

The reds in these pictures are darker than in real life!

A first attempt at stamping a label - these are called 'siggy's'!
Judith kindly gave us permission to post about our blocks when we'd made them, rather than waiting until the next Bee month.

Keep an eye on flickr over the next few weeks to see all the blocks being put together.


  1. Love love love a good nautilus block. Looks so striking!

  2. They are great blocks and I love what you've done with your siggy!

  3. Those blocks ar fantastic and I can't wait for the rest to arrive too. I also love your siggy block but forgot to ask where you got your stamps from. I'd love to use these too.
