Next up were my May blocks for Bee Blessed, a local quilting charity I try to make for. They had asked for two blocks, name unknown. I have made these blocks before a couple of times, so no problems here either. In the post last Friday too.
And lastly my two blocks for Beeabee2017, for Sharon, who is on instagram as @sharonappleton. Sharon picked a spider block. I have made these before, so should have been straight forward, but its not like me to complicate things .... I used the cutting line for the sewing line, negating the seam allowance. This meant I had no point..... I know there is a point, no matter what the sceptic non sewists think. We had sewn that way in the Bubble bee. Once I twigged that, no problem. In no time at all, 9 spider sections were sewn.
I included a little cotton and steel spider fabric for Sharon too. I wasn't sure if it was white enough for her so left it up to her. That isn't actually a real spider on the fabric, but isn't it realistic? Hoping she hasn't a spider phobia. I thought long and hard about this. Not about the spider phobia, but about the sharing. There are only 3 spiders per fq and they are a precious commodity. I also included a little hand made yellow book, I thought Sharon could use it to record her quilt finishes. These were posted last Friday too.
