Brushfire Project blocks

I finally had some time to make the star blocks for this project. I managed to make 4 and love them all. I was a fast and fun project. I am going to use this pattern to make a baby quilt for one of Scott's co-workers. Vary the sizes...lots of fun. I even managed to get them in the mail in a timely manner. I hope the people who receive the quilts feel our love.

Quilts for Austrailia

(photo is from the AP story in the Boston Globe)

I follow this blog and today she posted about the wild fires in Australia. Another great blogger is putting together quilts to send at Bushfire Project. This is the flickr group and you can join and help if you like. I'm going to try and get a couple make today in between everything else.

Done with v. 3

Here is the block I've been enjoying the past couple of days. Added the borders on 3 sides and then had to run and pick up kids. I like the angles on the dark aqua color.

The completed block with much fussing along the way. I think I like the final product. something is still not quite there but I am satisfied enough. I ripped out several tries before coming up with this.

All three blocks together, though not in order. Third, first, second. I am going to take off the left and bottom sides of block one and add larger pieced blocks that won't cause havoc in the seam allowance

Project Improv v.3

So I've been cleaning and not much else for the past week. First on my list now that I'm sewing again is the block for this project. I love diamonds and decided try number 3 should start with a diamond. I like the start but now I'm stuck with the what to do next...hopefully I can finish it tonight and get it mailed off this week.
