Little projects

I've had a teeny bit of extra time to just learn and play, and so I've done some block lotto blocks this month.  I LOVE this month's sparkler patter.  
I hope I win.

And, by the way, Block Lotto is AWESOME!  You should check it out.
And this wonderful surprise came in my mail.  The pictures don't do it justice at all. 
The fabric is just lovely.  It's a honey bun in Moda's Blessings line, and then yardage as well.  
And a pattern!  
Many, many thanks to Carol!
I've been getting caught up on my sewing bee blocks as well.  Don't you just love the mushrooms in this set?  And the pattern was really cool.  I think that I must try some more of these sometime soon.
The request for this bee was "something with flying geese" and here's what I came up with.  
Can I tell you this?  I was very very nervous that their recipient wouldn't like them at all.  But she did.  Whew! 
I had a really good time putting them together.  
I just worry that my chaotic and haphazard improvisational style is not universally appealing.
These were for my improvisational bee, and I had a blast with them.  
The "naughty" and "nice" just HAD to be fussy cut into a block, don't you agree?
What a wonderful quilt this one is going to be when all the blocks come together.

Have a lovely weekend friends!


  1. Love your mail surprise....

    You have been busy, that block lotto looks interesting.

  2. Wendy, I'm glad you got the kit I sent and that you like it too, I was wondering about that. I didn't know your blog address so I looked through Stephanie's winner post and found you. Have fun making your tote bag.

  3. Fussy cutting Naughty & Nice is really a neat idea. I love it.
