Angel Blocks

I love the concept of 'Angel Blocks'.

If a fellow bee member is struggling to make their blocks a particular month, another member offers to be their 'angel' and make the blocks on their behalf.  Like a kind of Guaradian Angel!

Well I got the privilege to dust off my halo & be guardian angel to one of my Brit Bee buddies, making her October's blocks for Susan.

These are the fabrics that Susan sent out, and she wanted a range of star block sizes.  The largest block there is 9.5" and the smallest (Pinwheels, technically not a star block!) is 3".

These 2 blocks have been foundation pieced:

The blocks are now on their way to a rather soggy England!

And the halo and wings have been put away for another day!

  3. What an angel! The blocks are lovely and will mix so well with the rest of the blocks. Susan is going to have one gorgeous quilt when the blocks are pieced together. Di x
