My impatience means this photo is pretty lousy; I should wait for daylight and true colour results. Anyway, here’s my offering! It took something like 5 hours and about 8 ripped out seams, and still isn’t perfect. I salute all of you who can make seams line up on the first try. Square squares are HARD … but I like the result. It’s a block that makes me think of office buildings and taxi cabs. Hopefully it’s OK, Meagan. I think I’m already a better quilter just for this one block:)
Sorry for the delay in getting this out to everyone. I’m still trying to figure out how to use WordPress and not sure the correct way to do this yet. But I want to post the html code for our blog button.
**Updated HTML code – sorry.. this should work this time.
If you have a blog on Blogger – this is how you install the button on your blog.
1. Go to your dashboard and click on Layout
2. click on tab for “page elements”
3. select “Add a gadget”
4. select “HTML/Java Script
5. Name your badge (optional)
6. copy and paste the above code into the “content” box. click “Save”
7. Preview to make sure it looks like you want.
I hope these are good instructions.. and I hope they work. lol.
You can check out my blog to see how it looks if you want. I added it to my sidebar.
Hmmmm…looks like I need to rethink how I take photos because these photos really don’t look as good as the real thing. But, this is what I came up with. (Obviously) I made the larger square first. I was concerned that I was biting off more than I could chew with the pattern, but it ended up turning out really well. Of course, I wanted to do more. However, it turns out that I have no solid fabrics in my own stash, so I had to rely only on the scraps of the fabrics that Meagan sent. I had enough fabric to complete four of the 4 1/2″ squares with a little bit left over. Hopefully these smaller squares can somehow be incorporated into the larger product. They were all so fun to make. Thanks for the fabric and the challenge, Meagan! Can’t wait for the next one!
Here they are! No need to follow the link to my blog, it is the same pic.
I can’t wait to sew for the rest of you!!
I wanted to let you know that I am done with Meagan’s blocks and I posted a picture on my blog. Like Dorrie, I don’t want to post here just in case Meagan wants them to be a surprise. link here
Have a great weekend!
I’m all done with your blocks. . .they’ll go out Monday. If you’d like a preview, they’ll be posted to my blog over the weekend. If you’d rather be surprised. . .you’ll just have to wait for the mailman!
Enjoy your weekend Bees!
As you may begin to realize – I have commitment issues. I made another button to add to the mix. Let’s do a vote and the winning button will be the one we can all post on our blogs etc. Here are Options 1 thru 4. I will tally the votes on Sunday the 23rd.
** I have added the button created by Bateau – I should have included it originally. Sorry about that!
