The charity bee I’m involved with assigns 2 12 1/2″ squares per month. Each month a different quilter chooses the type of quilt and sends out directions to the stitchers…that’s me! September’s mission was a tree quilt. We were allowed to be as creative as possible. The only real requirement was to use Kona White as a background to the tree block. Here are my contributions:
The “Neighborhood Tree” was tricky. Well, not really, but I had to play with numbers for a while before I started cutting. I pride myself on my math ability, so I was disheartened when I feel 1/2″ short on both sides. Big bummer. So, I simply added more Kona White trim and cut to 12 1/2″ squares. I’m such a perfectionist, that I would have started over if I had enough Kona White. Alas, I didn’t…ugh! And on second thought, I really should have added a swing…double ugh.
October’s quilt is Wonky Log Cabin in purple and orange. I’ll definitely need to dig deep for purple and orange scraps. Those colors aren’t what I normally gravitate towards, but it’ll be fun. It’s great to be pushed out of my routine!
