Sew & Tell

Posted on December 11th, by Amy in a Notion or Two, sew-n-tell, SewConnected. 21 comments

I have been doing a little catch up this week! November’s bee blocks are ready to go in the mail finally. Before I forget I also want to tell you that I also have a post on Natalia’s blog today! Go learn a little bit more about me there :)This block is for Amber – she sent some favorite scraps and pre-cut squares for a maverick star. It’s going to be a fun quilt!

This one is for Meg – she sent us beautiful vibrant solids for a Kaffe inspire log cabin block! I can’t wait to see this one come together too!

I’m linking up with Amylouwho and her Sew & Tell – I’m so glad to have something to share!!

I hope you all have a great weekend, I’ve got a few projects lined up to keep me inside and warm. My throat has been raw since yesterday morning, when I went outside for firewood and took a deep surprise breath at -10F :( Usually it’s not this cold until January around here!
Blessings ~

    Oooo…I didn't know it was called a Maverick Star…I thought it was a wonky star…I like!:)

    I like how you left a space between the points on one of the sides…I'll have to try that.

    I'm with DeeRoo, I love the term "maverick" – I have a few maverick projects but I guess it's supposed to be something you do on purpose! Enjoyed reading your article on Natalia's blog.

    Sounds like time to load up on Vitamin C and throat lozenges. That cold air is raw here too! Hope you're keeping warm with love and projects.

    Love the blocks you've been working on!
