Bee Blocks and Quilt Workout and Canada

Quilt Workout is (finally) go!

The first pattern – Shine Bright – is now available on Craftsy and walks through each round on this semi-medallion quilt which can be made with a bunch of fat quarters and a co-ordinating solid. It is priced at just $7 USD and there’s some other patterns in my Craftsy pattern store you might like too. It’s also listed on Payhip. The second Quilt Workout project will be an applique workout that looks a bit like this…

So far though, my version just looks like this and my priorities have had to change a bit recently, so I’m not sure of an ETA for this. Maybe the end of this year?

In Spelling Bee block news I have run out of the sandy coloured pearl bracelets print. It should say “yarnie” but so far it looks like pirate speak. This is the April block and I’m loathe to fall behind but I am waiting for it to be delivered. For Susan in May I am making three “the”s!

I’m queen for June and I want blocks for the provinces of Canada so I can make an 8-bit style map. It’s different to the improv lettering of the five turns before me so I made an example block. Saskatchewan!

As I finished making up this block, the Discover Canada range arrived at work and I had to buy the panels, even though I’m really not a panel person. I liked the vintage-y advert style.

So I will have two maps of Canada eventually it seems. I even planned a layout in EQ7…

Mine will have better bears though, I’m going to buy this block pattern and make it 10″!
