Decisions… Decisions…

Wow thank you all for commenting and joining in with the quilt along. It should be a lot of fun and can’t wait to get started. Some “basics” posts will be this week along with a tute on HSTs with a project for the weekend.

I’ve not been slacking over the weekend seems my sewing mojo has resurfaced big time. November is creeping closer and I’m Queen Bee over on the Bee Europa 2013 bee and needed to sort things for that like yesterday. For those who don’t know the Bee Europa Bee you send fabric and a pattern to a few others who will make it up for you and send it back. It’s a lot of fun!

So far the ones I’ve done for other members have been nice makes and even though I would love to hand over some paper piecing blocks.. they are labour intensive and didn’t feel that would be fair.

So currently two options……

P1100015This block has haunted me since I saw it a couple of days ago when I came across some “Farmer’s Wife” blocks. When I did the square in a square in my early days it was a disaster… but I’m quite pleased at how my points turned out and I hadn’t cut any corners off!

This is my own take on the FW block and I sized it to be 12″ finished.

P1100013Another block that I have become obsessed with thinking about this week ever since I saw it on my IG feed and watching Camille Roskelley Stashbuster video on youtube.  Again I’ve sized this to be 12″ finished.

Next is deciding on fabrics to send for the bee- am def liking the idea of 30s repros combined with Kona Snow.


Either Mother’s Melodies by Darlene Zimmerman.


Or 30’s playtime by Chloe’s Closet.

Mmm decisions decisions- what block/fabric combo would you choose? Promise I will show you what else I’ve been working on soon!

  1. Hmm, difficult decisions. Both blocks and fabric options are lovely! You’ve made both blocks really well. Think I slightly prefer the 1st block, and 30’s playtime fabric. – But it is hard to decide!
    Whatever combination you decide will look lovely! 🙂 xx

  2. All looks great Hannah. My fav is block 1 and I can’t decide on which fabric – I want it all lol.

  3. Nan

    Hmm tricky. I think I’d go for the first block and the 30’s fabric, I love retro with a modern twist.
