November blocks for Cherish do. Good Stitches

November was my turn again to pick the blocks for Cherish Bee.  I picked a 9 patch Rainbow with a white centre - I will be cutting these blocks up to make a disappearing 9 patch ........... after I finish my January Bee quilts ....... (hangs head in shame)  I have one flimsy made up, but not quilted.

Here is my sample block - once again using up some of the 5" squares received in a rainbow charm swap I did a while back :)

and here are the blocks I have received :)

Now to press them all, and start cutting so that I can play with the layout LOL  I think I actually enjoy that process more than the sewing :)

Here is my pink flimsy all ready for the next step!

Wonky White Stars

here is the layout for my blue flimsy - am yet to sew these together

The admin for this circle has taken a bit more time than I anticipated - doesn't it always LOL - but this year we have two new quilters and that means I can be a stitcher for most of the year.

There were no blocks for December - we can have a break, or use the time to catch up on things.  I volunteered to be a quilter for January to give the other circle members time to decide which months they would like to pick :)  For January, I have picked a black & white churn dash block - 2 blocks requested being 1 @ black on white, and 1 @ white on black :)

Stay tuned for pics a bit later :)
