First up , some super tiny wonky star blocks ;) These are actually part of the MQG project where several individual MQG Members are paired up to make a quilt to hang at Quilt Con. Our group decided on wonky stars, and let me tell you, there is no exaggeration when I say these are tiny. As in, they will finish at 2" and 2 1/4", so each of those squares in the nine patch are less than 3/4" ;) And I know it is absolutely crazy to admit, but I actually have a whole lot of fun doing this mini piecing, I just find it so rewarding to come out with those little baby stars when I am done. Oh, and if you are wondering how I make my Wonky Stars, you can see my Wonky Star Tutorial right here ;) (and no, you don't have to make them this small, the tutorial covers all sizes ;)
Next up, Kim asked us to make some Spell it with Moda Blocks for her August month. I have made one and two , Spell It With Moda Quilts, and just love making up these letters.
In fact, I had so much fun with these , I think it might be time to add another Spell It With Moda quilt to the list ;)
And finally, the other behind block. In July, Stephanie asked us to make this awesome Tone It Down block that Lissa Alexandar brought back in a quilt along with All People Quilt in 2013. I have wanted to make one of these quilts ever since, all of that wonderful low volume background is so fantastic!!! And I have to say, even with all of those tiny pieces, I absolutely loved making this block and it went together a lot faster than I had expected it to. This quilt has way moved up the list of quilts to make ;) And then of course, as I was editing the photo to post it here, I realized that ya, I totally misplaced 2 of my 9 patches, and of course it is already in the mail. I am sorry Stephanie that you will have to take out that row. I have no idea how I didn't notice it sooner. Ah well, gotta keep it real right ;)
And now I am all caught up and feeling great. Can't wait for September's block to arrive (Although I have a few deadlines before then, so don't arrive to quickly :)
I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
