Block Party!

Quiltstory is hosting a Block Party contest, and today is the very last day to enter!  I am not one to turn down the chance at a fabric prize, so here we go.

Mosaic Tree - a block for do. Good Stitches

This block is my favorite block ever, and quite fitting for the "creative" category. I made it for Ara Jane's do. Good Stitches quilt - a forest of trees on white. My Mosaic Tree is something I enjoy recreating, so far as cards. I definitely not done with it yet....

X-String Bee Blocks

Since you all liked it so much, I'm entering this block into the "traditional" category. To me, the colors and design are quite traditional - small piecing to create an overall repeated design. I wonder if they'll like it? It was made for Twin Fiber's do. Good Stitches quilt.

my first ever wonky.

And, while I'm at it, I may as well enter a block into the "modern" category. I had trouble choosing one that seemed "modern" enough. Or is everything I do modern? I don't know.  I think the bold combo of purple and orange combined with the wonky log cabin design and use of solids makes this one "modern" by most counts.

So, wish me luck!  You can visit the party to see other fun blocks  too.  I recognize some of my bloggy friends there!

  10. That mosaic tree is so amazing! I can see why it is your favorite and why you keep recreating it. I love your blog and found some of your 'inspirations' to be very interesting as well...time to start sewing again now that my kids are grown and out of the house. Thanks so much!
