The Last of the Blocks Rolled On In!!

I am so excited to have the last of my Semi Bee Block arrive.  Don't you just love when you get squishy packages in the mail!!!  It is just so much fun :)

Lisa made this amazing Car Carrier block.  Can you believe she pieced in those cars!!  So amazing :)  I just love how creative and fun it is.  (And I want a purple polka-dot car!)


Ursula  made this super fun Horse Trailer Semi.  I love that one of the horses has turned his back on the camera.  Apparently, he is not a fan of the Paparazzi.  And isn't it fun that Ursula took the picture by her own horse :)  Such a clever girl!


Once I had all of the blocks, I went back and added a bit of detail to some of the blocks.  You know, doors, ladders, just a few little basics.  Except for this block.  When Danny originally made it she intended to add the transformer logo to the carrier.  But she was having printer issues and ended up bagging the idea.  So, when it arrived looking all Optimus like in the navy and red I couldn't help but finish her plan.  Didn't it turn out cool!!! (It was super easy too, I just laid the paper print out on the wrong side of the fabric and zig-zag stitched over the lines, when I was done, I just tore away the paper :)


Last, but not least on the Semi Truck news, I finished paper piecing the big semi in the middle.  Yipppee Skippee!!!  However, I will save that story for tomorrow.  It is a whole saga and I have to get the kids ready for swim lessons.  (My 3 year old is in a tots and mom class so I suppose I better be getting ready as well :)  Until tomorrow, Happy Quilting!!

  9. I love the transformer! Funny... My BIL has a white car (not sure what kind) and he has a red sticker on the back and one of hisbuddies (another Air Force Guy) has the same car in black and has the decepticon (purple) sticker on the back! I just shake my head at Timmy every time I see his little 'transformer car'! And even more when I think there is a second guy who played the game with him!! LOL
