Swoon Pillow Covers and Baptist Fans

This is a block orphaned from the Swoon quilt.  I also have another cut, ready to sew, so I thought I would turn them into oversized pillow covers.  This is the first one, and I quilted it with a Baptist fan pattern.  Love!

Catch-Up and Mustard

Slowly I am digging my way out of the black hole that was March. I don't even know what happened, how I got so busy and far behind on everything. Unfortunately, my bee commitments suffered.

I finished my March block for Stash Bee the evening of the 31st. Jan wanted us to make a block following this tutorial.  It's not evident from the picture, but the block finishes at 17 inches!  I can't wait to see Jan's finished quilt when it all comes together.

Stash Bee - March 2013

Yesterday I finished the March block for Simply Solids.  Charisma wanted an asterisk block, and I ended up loving this block.  The instructions were written without diagrams, so it was a bit confusing when I first read it over.  However, everything began to make complete sense once I followed the step-by-step instructions.  It's rather like turn-by-turn directions instead of using a map.

Simply Solids (Puce Group) - March 2013

As it turns out (and I'm still not sure how I managed this), I am the queen bee this month for both Stash Bee and Simply Solids.  I had been looking at different block options for a long time, but all of sudden with April looming, I had to make some final choices.  For Stash Bee,I chose Road to Oklahoma, and for Simply Solids, I chose a paper-pieced Star Block.

Finally, these were my February blocks for both bees, which I never got around to posting about.
