BACK TO BUSINESS

Just before the end of last year I joined two new online groups. These new groups are Canadian which I'm excited about. One of the groups makes quilts for charity, and in the other group we make blocks for each other to keep.  I'm in a total of five groups, so I will be busy for sure.

This is a dresden plate for Rene'  (December block) in the Mid Century modern group



two divide and conquer blocks for the Heal @do. good stitches group (December block)


a ribbon star block for Stacey. I'm sending along the extra bits too


two stair step blocks for the Joy group of do.good stitches


and lastly Mel asked for a flying geese block done any way we like. I have had this 'circle of flying geese'  on my to do list for a long time and this was my chance to try it.  I love it!



Phew! I still have two more blocks to make for January, but I still have two weeks right?

Happy Monday : )

Each block is more stunning than the next!! I love them all. I’m so impressed that you are in 5 groups. FIVE. (This means I’ll have more time when my kiddos are older, right?!) ;-)

I love that green dresden plate. You've used great colours in it. You will be busy with 5 different groups. I've resisted the lure of joining more than one.

Gosh, I can't imagine the pressure of keeping up with so many monthly bees! You're a better, more disciplined quilter than I am. Love the block you made for René. It's really pretty!
