Blocks Received

This was my month in the We Bee Learnin Block Bee.  I chose a Bow Tie block from Canoe Ridge Creations.  This is the test block I made.


I asked for blocks that had a background of white or white on white, and then a different color for each of the bow ties.  Also, I asked for the blocks to have some sort of theme.  For example, mine has a food theme.  (And I specified that "scrappy" counts as a theme too.)

Yesterday I received the first two blocks from Nita and Danielle.  Aren't these sweet?  Danielle's block is floral.


Nita's block has a farmer's market theme.  And you know I love a good farmer's market.


Thank you so much for these pretty blocks Nita and Danielle!

I will have nine more blocks coming to me.  I think these are going to make into a pretty quilt.  I have in mind to put a sashing with cornerstones when I sew them all together.  I can't wait to see them all lined up so I can decide what colors to use.

The blocks are so creative. You know I would have never thought of using the food fabric the way you have. Great is the mine of a quilter, who's eyes see what other cannot.
