It is still July, but already Toni has sent in her August block to me:

Thanks, Toni - this is just what I was looking for!

From Shannon to Wendy

Wendy, you might already have this block by now. But here is a sneak peak for everybody else. Have a great day!!

One more for Carolyn

I received one more block:
Thanks Melinda, this is going to go perfectly with the rest of them! I think there is just 1 or 2 left to come.

Group B August fabrics sent

I know I've jumped the gun a bit, but I was so excited that my month had nearly rolled around that I sent out my fabric on Thursday. I included instructions and a photo of my sample block, but recognizing that my photo on the instruction sheet is black and white, I've inserted the photo of my sample block here, too. All the blocks should be primarily the scrappy black and white fabrics, include the quilt saying, include a splash of red, and be 12.5" unfinished, but beyond that, you can do anything you want - traditional, modern, wonky, precise, pieced, appliqué, whatever. I'm very excited to see what you come up with! Please send back the scraps for me to use in finishing the quilt.

Happy sewing!

More squishies for Carolyn

I got some more blocks in. Here they are:
From Tiffany




 These next ones I already showed, but I wanted to show all the squishies together.

I cannot wait to get all of these together. Its going to look awesome! Thanks for all the great blocks. I am sure the last couple will be here soon.

Group A August fabric

I sent out my fabric today!  I will be out of town for 2.5 weeks and I may or may not have internet in the wilds of Canada so sorry if someone needs to ask me a question.  I thought I would restate my wishes here just in case.  I would like you to use some of all the fabrics sent.  The white is NOT necessarily the background fabric.  You can use the fabrics anyway you want as long as there is at least one wonky star somewhere in the block.  You can do one large one, multiple small ones, use a wacky layout, applique a sunbonnett sue holding one.  Whatever floats your boat.  Keep the scraps I have plenty of the fabric leftover.  BTW I am sending out DS Quilts I have been collecting.  I cant wait to have a quilt from this line. 
If you need to add a small piece of fabric from your stash you may if needed to create you idea.  But I would prefer you to stick with the fabrics sent.  Below is an inspiration mosaic of wonky stars.

1. wonky stars, 2. Bee-Stitched Wonky Star Quilt Back, 3. Wonky Star block for Rachel, 4. IMG_1385, 5. Wonky Stars for Darci, 6. 6"-12"mini quilt for august wonky stars, 7. Rainbow Wonky Stars, 8. Pieced Together Quilting Bee - Sept. Wonky Stars, 9. Bumblebees, Bee Europe, Wonky stars, 10. My block Wonky Stars - 152:365, 11. Ring of Wonky Stars, 12.

A Cool Hot Pepper Block!

I love the way the green cools off this chili pepper block that Robyn sent me!

It looks great with the rest of them, too!

And thanks for the great pepper scraps, Robyn! Too much fun!!

This is a call out to Group B.  Has anyone heard anything from Jadie?  She is to be our hostess for this month.  I sent out an email but haven't heard back from her.  If I don't hear from her, I guess this will be a non-month :(

July Fabric for Group A

I was just thinking I haven't received my fabric from Wendy for July.  It's okay if it went out a bit late or whatever, but my concern is that I moved recently and wanted to make sure it was being sent to the correct address (thought I had updated that with Linda though).

Also, Carolyn, I will finally be making it to the post office to get your block sent up to you.  It's been a comedy of errors trying to get to the post office the last couple of weeks.

I got two more squishy packs!

That makes only a total of three blocks - darn Canada Post!! That said, these blocks are fantastic!! Here are the latest two I just got:

Look, they sent me these lovely post cards to go with them.
Thank you for my blocks Shannon and Linda, I absolutely love them.
