Description

July Queen wanted a paper pieced grey and white block.  I had to search for a little variety of grey in my stash, but the block turned out pretty good.

August was my month as queen and I did a hexie/log cabin like block.

September Queen wanted a disappearing four patch block in Christmas themed fabric.  I attempted this block 4 times! I kept cutting the 5" squares and misplacing the fabric.  Finally pieced two blocks and put them in the mail before I could loose them.  There are still two rogue blocks hiding in my home somewhere.

January Queen wanted a star block with a white center, grey background and any color star points that were bright and perfect for a quilt for her daughter.  It came together really well. Can't wait to see the finished project.

February Queen wanted a paper pieced star block in red, pink, teal/turquoise, or grey.  I really enjoyed making this block.

March Queen wanted a paper pieced star called 'ET phone home'.  She preferred primary tonal colors with a white background.  It was fun, but challenging.

April Queen wanted a flower block that could be either paper pieced or traditionally pieced.  It was fun picking fabric for this block.  The background is white on white, unfortunately the lighting for my picture was not great.

very nice and I like the spiders.

HawkFan I had to add some quirkiness to the block, which is hard when the Queen wants grey. But when I cam across the purses and spiders I knew they were perfect.

You've got some great fabrics in there. I've started collecting grays as they're becoming more popular now and a bit easier to find.

This is a wonderful block. I love gray and also have started collecting more and more of it... You used it beautifully in this block.

Wow, what a great quilt this is going to make if all the other blocks re as cool as yours. Never enough gray fabric to collect!

Terryt1955 Thanks. I think it will be a great quilt. The other blocks are just as good if not better.

I love the February Block.. Of course it's paper pieced.. my nemesis. I need to really learn how to paper piece..

BlueFigQuilts it is paper pieced, but the star is worth it.
