today was catch-up day for me. i was a bit behind in my do. good stitches bee blocks. and the blocks that were late were for the quilt that i am putting together. yipes! to be fair, i haven't yet received all the blocks from all the members, so it's not like it was waiting on me or anything. but still.
my request was for scrappy tree blocks in any style, just so long as the trees were all surrounded in white. i was hoping for a forest of trees and i'm super pleased with the diversity of blocks i got. i'm glad i waited until i received most of the blocks because i feel like the quilt needs some smaller trees, so that's what i focused on. i also wanted to add more color to unite the quilt. mission accomplished. and, excluding the white, these trees are made entirely of scraps.
i am so in love with these blocks, i had a selfish moment where i thought i just might keep them for myself. sigh.
i'm looking forward to getting this put together and off to wrap them in love, and hoping i can get that done in the next week or so. fingers crossed for feelings of motivation and lack of distractions.
i also sent off my october blocks last week to jennifer of that girl that quilt. she asked for log cabins in purple and orange. purple! i had, like, one fabric in purple in my stash, so i was quite happy to discover that innocent crush has some great purples and oranges, which served as the foundation fabrics for my blocks. honestly, though, i'm torn between loving these and finding them horribly obnoxious.
what do you think?
