Show & Tell blocks finished

Donna wanted scrappy

Tacha wanted dots

Sara wanted black & white

and Sudi-Laura also wanted scrappy

Hopefully these will fit the bill.

This really is a super block. So simple to make, yet a myriad of effects can be achieved. I expect there are lots of blocks like that, I just really love pinwheels.

And what about these fabrics, aren't they just the cutest!I know at least one of you out there will agree.

They came from
Cherri, of Cherry House Quilts, whose daughter is Lizzie of 'Lizzy's Red Letter Day' fabric. Such a generous giveaway, and I'm proud as punch that my comment was one of three that Cherri chose. She wanted to know what we would make from the fabric. I said I would make pillow cases for my boys, to remind them that when the owls are awake, they should be asleep. I've not made a pillowcase in my life! How hard can it be though. I, as did every commenter, promised to show our creation. And so I will. I'm slowly whittling down my WIP's.

Show & Tell Oct blocks - Done
Show & Tell Nov blocks - Done
6" mini quilt - Posted
Place mat Swap - Posted
STUD (swap til you drop) - Posted
Bee Crazy Oct block -
Bee Crazy Nov block -

So, only the Bee Crazy blocks to do and I will make some pillow slips. I've other things on the horizon, an order for x4 pencil cases, and some stock samples to make for applying to the 'Nook' in Leura. If it doesn't happen, I'll just add them in my 'madeit' shop listings. Yes! I finally did that too. I've only 3 things in there at present, but I do plan on adding some more to Mandalin soon.

Well, cheerio for now
X Mandy
