July Bee Blocks and Such

Time for a block round up for July! Believe it or not, we had to twist PatchworknPlay's arm to let us make blocks for her in the Mid-Century Modern Bee this month! She gave in, asked for star blocks, and I chose an adaptation on Megan's Star by Maverick Quilts in Modern Blocks.

It was Christmas in July in That Stash Bee, where mihertz had us make either a 4-patch or a 9-patch AND a 16-patch or a 36-patch in Christmasy fabrics. I was reminded how much I like those chartreuse Metro Living Rings with Christmas fabrics as I put that block on the right together. I used up my last little bit, so I ordered more to put with my Christmas stash.

As I may have already mentioned, FAITH Circle is making Postcard blocks for me this month, with solid or tone-on-tone "fronts". Here's several that have shown up in the group so far.
I redid these blocks after I noticed my measurements were off on the first set. Hope these are ok @aquilterstable. For July #faithcircle #dogoodstitches blocks #postcardblocks

Postcard blocks for Do Good Stitches Faith Circle July 2014.

And though not technically bee blocks, I did make 2 blocks for the giving committee of our Seattle Modern Quilt Guild. These are 2 of the suggested blocks of the month. First I made a hashtag block, using some crazy-piecing left over from last fall's Crazy Rainbow.
Next was a wonky star, using the tutorial by The Silly BooDilly, using our signature guild colors of aqua/light blue, citron green, greys and white/ivory/neutrals. Blocks are being collected for charity quilts in  4.5″, 6.5″ or 12.5″ (unfinished) - these 2 are both 12.5".

So that's it for miscellaneous blocks for this month! Enjoyable, but it's always a relief when they're done!


  1. Ooh, I really like the hashtag block!

  2. Tons of awesome blocks, but I have to say the very first is my favorite!

  4. Ummm, amazing. The first one popped right out at me - I love everything about it!

  5. I am very proud to be the new owner of Megan's Star- now officially known as "Susan's Star"! Thanks Debbie I love it and look forward to finding it in my a mail box in a few days time!

  6. Love all the blocks and all the colors especially the top one.

  7. Hey I see my blocks! Also, I can't get over that star and the colors for PatchworknPlay, so great!
