TGI...Saturday! and {SHARDS}

I finally got a few minutes to sew after a very busy week.  Although there isn't much to show for my few minutes, bee blocks have been arriving in my mail!

Our bee decided to use stash fabric each month to make up our blocks.  The queen bee only gives general instructions on design and desired colors.  I found it very interesting, when the blocks started arriving, to find so many of our group using teal and purple.

Turning these rather fabulous churn blocks into a quilt will be fun!  Each of the ladies wrote a note saying they had never made this block before!

The sewing I managed to do was to get some blocks out of my head and into some fabric for a quilt I want to call Shards.

Only a few blocks are done.  Again, I am having a problem with what seems like thinking backward thinking when I add the color into the block.  It took several practice blocks before I became somewhat comfortable with restructuring the background block without ruining its shape.  It helped when I began to cut the block slightly larger than my target size of 6.5 inches.   Obviously, this is a rudimentary beginning (of what may be a small project!)

At least I did get to sew!  Linking up to Fabric Frenzy Friday at Fort Worth Fabric Studio!!!



  1. Oh, I really like where you are headed with the shard blocks! Slash inserting and improv can be challenging to get to a uniform size, so I am glad to hear you've figured out a technique that works for you.

  2. I think those shard blocks are fantastic and I can't wait to see the end product!
