WIP WEDNESDAY

September was gorgeous!  We've had beautiful weather all month so I found myself out and about more. I hunkered down the other day and got my bee blocks done for September. Phew!

These stash builders I've been getting sure come in handy. This month we got four fat quarters from the line 'Rush Hour' by Studioe Fabrics. I cut into the small text for one of my blocks




meet Jack.


Union Jack.  Him and I spent a lot of time together the other day....  This block is for Mary


This is a pixelated block that will become part of a picture quilt.


and for the Heal group of do.good stitches,  a pair or 'winged square' blocks.




It's going to be hard mailing off these two.  I think I may have to make a whole quilt of these !

Great blocks. I love your Jack and your heal blocks are beautiful too.

Andrea @ Mouse in My Pocket said...

Those blocks are lovely, and the black and white prints you got are to die for! I might have to pick some of them up.

Lisa said...

They are all pretty but the last two are just gorgeous!

You've left me feeling totally inspired! In fact, I'm trying to figure out if I can sneak out of work early to go home and sew! Just love your blocks - have been wanting to make some Union Jack blocks myself, but might have to put it off because the bottom two have me literally drooling...they are just fabulous!

So many lovely things about this post. I didn't have a hankering to make my own Union Jack, but yours is fabulous. I especially like the text print you used. I may have to add this to my to-do list ...

Teresa in Music City said...

As always your post is so inspiring!!! I'm with you, I may have to make a quilt myself out of those last two blocks - such wonderful color play!!!

K is making an x and o quilt and she has lots of little half square triangles already sewn and pressed... hmmm, I think she may like this! Very bright and cheerful Carla!

Your winged square blocks are beautiful. Great choice of colors. A quilt of them would be gorgeous.

Oh man... so much gorgeousness in one post... LOVE! (That Union Jack square has me itching to do one myself!)

Kim said...

Happy to meet you "Jack"!! What a gorgeous block. I agree, a quilt with those pretty winged square blocks would be beautiful. Those fabrics are gorgeous!

Patchwork and Play said...

The Union Jack was a challenge, wasn't it? Yours looks great though! And the Winged Squares are very pretty!

OPQuilt said...

Lovely to see all your blocks lined up and looking so beautiful! I about lost my marbles trying to make the Union Jack, so I'm glad you had great success with that block.

Gorgeous blocks! Really love that Union Jack, Carla.

I agree, a quilt with those blocks - a must have. You used some of that Rush Hour fabric perfectly. I love how it looks in that block.

The pixelated block looks interesting.

As usual, your blocks are stunning. You have a great eye for colour.

Gorgeous bee blocks!

Carla said...

Great blocks, Carla. I remember how much I liked the winged star when we made them for Cindy in MCM Bee last year.

Granny Maud's Girl said...

I love the winged square blocks (beautiful colours) and I have seriously been considering setting a Union Jack block when I am queen bee. It wouldn't be too tricky, right?

Mama Pea said...

Your winged blocks are just beautiful. I really love them. Is there a tutorial for those somewhere? Thanks for your help.
