First up the appropriately named Snowball block for Hannah in the Siblings Together Quilting Bee
Next up a rainbow block for Sarah in the Fat Stash Brit Bee
I had never tried a stacked coin block before and have to confess that I did have to redo one of the strips as the rainbow coin ended up levitating in mid-air rather than stacking! Aside from that small hiccough it was fun to put together.
My final block, I am ashamed to admit was due in November and whilst holidays and present delivering around the country was part of the reason for the delay it wasn't the entire reason.
Nicky asked the Siblings Together Quilting Bee members to create a block that called for sewing a partial seam. Having never attempted partial seams before I was a bit wary of the block, so procrastinated for quite a while before finally managing to put aside enough time to get my head around joining up half-stitched seams.
Thankfully, it all worked out rather easier than I had anticipated and here is the result.
Please tell me that I am not the only one who was wary of attempting blocks with partial seams :)
