Late posting........oops

MY JULY BLOCKS FROM ANNA

 I received my 12" Maple Leaf block from Anna. We had been partners in January in the Paper pieced Swap so it was good to have contact again. All Anna had to do was make 1 * 12" block. To my surprise she made 3  blocks, added in a 6" block too. But wait, there's more.. A cute little coaster in the shape of a Maple Leaf. It is so cute. I am already using it.

"wonky tree" for Bellezza

 I just couldn't help myself - I had to make a "wonky" tree. Loving wonky - mismatched seams, crooked cuts, anything goes with wonky.

August 6" blocks for Bellezza

These are the August 6" blocks I stitched for Bellezza who requested "wonky" or "freeform" blocks. I made a Wonky Star, Wonky 9-patch, Wonky Disappearing 9-patch, Wonky Log Cabin and an Interrupted 9-patch. These were fun to make as "wonky" & "freeform" were new to me. I can't wait to see Bellezza's finished project.

July 6" blocks sent to Paula

These are the July 6" Friendship Stars I stitched for Paula - I hope they blend in with your planned project. Cheers, Kerry

July 6" blocks from Paula
