Regular readers will know that procrastination is my middle name, so you can imagine how hard it was for me to decide upon a block to ask my Siblings Together Quilt Bee mates for! Having considered and dismissed more blocks than I care to count, I eventually decided upon an updated version of an old block.
The block is called Merry-Go-Round and as you can see, is a mixture of HST's and rectangles. I have asked for low-volume backgrounds and scrappy triangles, so I am looking forward to seeing what my lovely Bee mates come up with.
The blocks will be pieced together in fours to look like this!
There were more HST's in my February blocks for Siblings Together Quilt Bee, which I just managed to get in the post on the last day of the month :( In my defence, I had made them earlier but didn't manage to post them before we headed off to France for a couple of weeks.) I did think about taking them with me to post from France, but decided that explaining what they were to the postmistress was beyond my limited French! Is it just me that gets annoyed when asked what is in every package that I send, even the ones that have customs labels on them ???
The brief was any 10.5" block with fabric in any combination of the following colours;
It is a very pleasant feeling knowing that I can ignore at least one of the Bee deadlines this month!
