November Blocks

November '12 Dream Circle 001

First up is for the Dream Circle at do.Good Stitches.  This cute modern pinwheel tutorial is from Moda Bake Shop and designed by Karin at Cascade Quilts.  Laura is putting together the quilt for Project Night Night.  Love those colors!

November '12 for Lauren 001

Since our guild brought Denyse Schmidt to Kansas City for two workshops in October, Lauren from KC Scrappy Bee requested small  paper bag improv blocks surrounded by this luscious khaki solid.  I’m not sure who makes that smooth and soft fabric but I love it. This is a big block at 16 x 16 but fun and easy.

This block gave me the most trouble.  Amy from Design Camp #3 requested a “dwelling of some person/creature from a fairy tale.”  My first inclination was a castle but I wondered if that was too obvious.  I scoured Flickr for inspiration but didn’t come up with anything I liked better. The roofs on the two towers ended up a little wonky so I think it looks more like something from Arabian Nights and I’m good with that.  The only fabric I added was the dark gray for the windows and drawbridge.

I’ve received my instructions for the December blocks and I’m anxious to get started with them!  As my daughter who’s home from Arkansas for semester break would say, “Happy Holidays y’all!
