July was the month of Sarah and Fiona. Sarah asked for a special spiderweb block and I have to say that was the best one I ever made.
It was so easy going and with all the fabrics precuts so the finger press was the solution. I rarely had to get over to iron the stripes back. It was a pleasure to make them.
The other block long over due was for Fiona and she asked for selvageblocks. I am sure this quilt will be amazing when all the blocks are together.

For the Irish Bee it was Fionas turn and she asked for Churn Dash blocks. They are really fun! The only rule we had to follow was to use our favorite fabric in the middle. Not sure if this was a good idea as in my house it is all about pirates and sculls at the moment. So this is my first block:
I showed this block on Instagram and guess what happened; she liked this block! I made this block just for fun and of course this was not the one I had in mind for her. I just loved the combination of pink/purple with the scull and my sewing motivation up high it was made in no time! But of course I made two blocks in a much "softer" version for her
Hope all those blocks arrive soon safe in the new houses. I can not wait to see those quilts finished. They will all be very colorful and fun! So I am back on track and have already made my September blocks for the Irish Bee. Looks like it is time to look out for a new bee as this one is also fast coming to an end. Any suggestions? I love to be in bees!
I do not promise to write soon again as my laptop broke down and is only working if I am really nice to him. Think asking him for editing pictures might not be a good for now. But the new one is ordered and I am patiently waiting for it to arrive.
