Friday Block Party catchup

/ posted in: PhotosQuilting

I’ve been using my sewing time to work on a few projects so I knew I was getting a bit behind on my Friday Block Party blocks. But I was shocked to realize that I was 5 weeks behind! I’m going to get caught up now.

Here are weeks 31, 32, and 33 (clockwise from top left).

weeks31-33

Week 31 is made with some horrible vegetable fabric. This must have spontaneously generated in my stash because I’ve never seen it before and I know that I wouldn’t have bought anything like it. It looks much better cut up into small pieces.

Week 32 was a nice simple block. I made it with 3d flying geese to add some texture.

I actually followed the quilter’s cache instructions for week 33. I usually do anything to avoid sewing triangles together. I realized how rarely I use written directions. As I was sitting at the computer taking notes on what sizes to cut, my boyfriend walked by and asked if I was cheating. I had to explain that it is ok to use directions even if he’d never actually seen me do it before.

week34-35

Here are weeks 34 and 35. Pretty straightforward but I managed to screw up the math several times. I’m blaming my cold or cold medicine or phase of the moon or something.
