I love your butterfly! Also the granny square block is awesome:-)

Strandkorbtraum

True you mean my butchered fly ... I'm slowly getting to like it but I think I will need a few more works of separation therapy ...

True
Mymble

Strandkorbtraum Oh dear- too funny- but the block is adorable- not a butchered fly at all- that would mean a zillion eyes- and that would be nasty indeed- no your butterfly is absolutely sweet- love the fabrics you chose!

Strandkorbtraum

Mymble well it just doesn't look like I imagined it .. but as I said I'm becomeing friends with it - I'm just glad posyp likes it ...

True

I love that April block that I think will be coming to me!!!!

Strandkorbtraum

True ahh yes - it's a possibility that it will come to you - I did my part now we just have to hope the postal services will do theirs.

True

Strandkorbtraum LOL I will have faith...

True

Got your block today safe and sound and I love it! Thank you so much!

Strandkorbtraum

pheww I'm glad - so it's not too dark then?

Strandkorbtraum

True I forgot to click on reply --- see comment above ..

True

Strandkorbtraum I think the darkness of it makes it a very interesting and intriguing part of quilt. I just took picture but will not be able to post til get home tonight as no time! Now I have to start figuring out how to make a quilt top with all of these. Have some ideas but we shall see. Two more still on their way!

I just love the block with the little girl. Just too cute.

Strandkorbtraum

Quilt455 Thanks - well the little girl is the "Mymble" character from the Moomins - you really should look into the books. They are great fun.

QCHandmade

The Moomins were great! My mom read them to us as children. I recognized the illustration right off!

Strandkorbtraum

Qchandmade hehe .. if it's recognisable then that makes me a master pattern tracer

Quilt455

Strandkorbtraum I will look into them since I love reading to the grandchildren. Thanks for the tip

Mymble

Hi Leo- your block for Chandra looks super- I think I recognize a few fabrics in there;))))

Laweigel

Great blocks Leo! All are so creative

True

Great blocks and your first paper pieced block is awesome!!!

Strandkorbtraum

Mymble hehe yeah you should - I love using up your scraps ...

Strandkorbtraum

Laweigel well it's just my colours/fabrics - but thanks!

Strandkorbtraum

True hehe - yeah now I know I can do it. But I probably won't start on a PP spree. Ok I will have to do some PP for the August block and I promised my mini swap partener some PP-basekt/s for ther mini ...

Quilterinmotion

Strandkorbtraum , you obviously don't have any problems with paper-piecing! That cupcake was a fussy little thing and yours came out so great!!! I just did the August block (and won't be mailing it until August 1st) and you won't mind it at all; it's a breeze!

Strandkorbtraum

Quilterinmotion nahh it's just psychological ... I just don't really like it - it sort of becomes work with all the sew fold cut away, sew fold cut away and then it's a bit loosing the fun. Yes the results do look nice - but I'm not sure they are worth all the trouble/work

Quilterinmotion

Strandkorbtraum , that's something only you can decide!! You do a great job, either way.

Strandkorbtraum

Quilterinmotion I guess I will just do it some more - becasue yeah you do get exact seams on tiny projects - but HSTs, you really can get perfectly fine HSTs piecing normally ...

Mymble

Great start- I did the same thing on my first set- had to unpick the last bit and resew it- it's so easy to do because the other way makes sense too:))

True

I love the blue with the black really striking! Great job:-)

libellenart

Die Moomins... brings back memories :-) Dein August Block sieht echt nett aus, die Flying geese sind einwandfrei !

Strandkorbtraum

libellenart jaaa ... die Moomins sind einfach einmalig - haha die flying gees sind so einwandfrei weil das paper piecing war, da haut immer alles hin mit den spitzen ...

True

Pretty December block!

Aizome

Wow, really interesting looking thru and seeing the different bee blocks people chose!
