Just A Trip Around the Quilt Block

What a great day today was! It started out with a run/walk in 60 degree weather. It’s been in the triple digits so long here I forgot what cool weather felt like! After my workout, I went to my Aunt Linda’s to catch up on some quilt blocks I owe the ladies from my online quilting bee.

We started with Frieda’s blocks, which had 100 half square triangles. Ok, maybe not a hundred but it sure felt like it!

Since Frieda wanted two blocks, I did one and Aunt Linda did the other. It took us about 2 hours to do each block, but I am quite happy with how they turned out.

I can’t wait to see the final quilt! After finishing Frieda’s block we split up the last two blocks left. I took Jessica’s hexagon block while Aunt Linda took Heidi’s beach house block. The hexagon block scared me. I’m was afraid I’d cut something wrong and mess the whole block up, but it looks pretty good!

Aunt Linda had fun coming up with a striped beach house. There weren’t any restrictions except not having raw edges.

All in all it was a very productive Saturday! I’m glad to be caught up on my quilt blocks. Now, I need to get my directions and fabric put together soon. My month is October!
