12" & 15" blocks are SOOOO BIG!!

especially after making 6 1/2" blocks for the Farmers Wife Quilt  LOL

I made sure I spent some quality time in the sewing room this week.

For July for the Christmas Block Swap, I made a pinwheel block for Erin.

July for CHERISH do Good Stitches was an octagon block - I normally hate paper piecing with a vengance, but thanks to some great instructions by Kelly, I got through it OK without too much swearing and re-sewing ;)

I took the opportunity to do the August block for CHERISH while I was in the mood!
and thanks to a great tutorial HERE the blocks came together just fine!
