Where did July go?

Happy August everyone!

Half way through our summer holidays here already!

Sadly the weather has been more grey than blue, but this weekend I had a lot of fun with greys and blues of a different kind!

Sarah, Miss August, sent the Brit Bee luvvies a wonderful package of fabrics, and free reign to come up with 2 non-traditional blocks.

One of my favourite patterns recently has been colour-brick ....

... and I decided to go all wonky for the 2nd one (nothing at all to do with the crazy Kramola Foam drink & classic music from the 80's & 90's Sarah sent us!)

These will be on their way back to the Shetland Isles this week.  Can't wait to see how Sarah's quilt shapes up when she gets all the Brit Bee blocks back.

To finish here is my July roundup mosaic, which I'm linking to Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing Day.

Have a wonderful 1st of the month everyone!

  3. OOOOH Love my blocks! lol see I'm claiming them immediately ;-) Looks like I'm going to have a really really good month, hope you do to! x

  4. The second block is wonderful? Is there a name for the piecework? I would love to see a tutorial for it!

  5. Wow, wow and wow again. These blocks are amazing! Love them both, but the second one is really interesting! Lucky Sarah!
