Did you guys have a good weekend?
Ours was great. My parents came for a quick visit which is always fun, but my mom also painted my bedroom while she was here! Isn't she great? Rog was working all weekend so she painted while my dad and I took the kids to baseball practice Saturday morning. I had already gotten around all the trim done, but hadn't gotten to the rest of it yet. Mom to the rescue again! No pictures yet as we haven't moved anything back in there, but I have yet to decide if I like the color. It is a grey, but tends to go more towards the lavender-beige side. Not exactly what I was going for, but I doubt it gets repainted.
Onto the blocks...
I joined a new group, Always Bee Learning, and June was the first month of this round. Megan chose the Tokyo Subway Map blocks from the tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson. There wasn't anything really difficult about these, just a little tedious making sure things lined up and seam allowances were accurate.
These blocks were for Valerie in the Modern Blocks Bee. She requested square-in-square blocks in red, blue, grey, and white and she sent some great fabrics. I love that blue one with the white hexagons, though I have no idea what it is. She suggested four blocks from the book, so I chose "Seeing Double" (on the left) which was designed by Yvonne Malone, and "Boxed Up" which was designed by Angela Yosten. Fun and easy blocks to put together. She is making a quilt for her son and I think it is going to look fabulous when she gets it finished!
While I was working on these, guess what I found...
