Tonight saw the finish of a summer Wonky Star Cushion class.

It is so lovely to see everyone finish their cushions, and for some, putting in concealed zippers for the first time.

Well done ladies! 

And I’ve been doing a bit of wonking of my own this week (no not the wallpapering in my daughter’s room, which most definitely qualifies as wonky!)

Hipbees Wonky Corners block for Fi Aug13

This is my wonky corners block for Fi in Hipbees, who sent us some lovely Amy Butler to work with.  This is the final month of year 1 in Hipbees.  The bee is continuing on, however I’ve made the difficult decision to step down.  I know that I will continue some long lasting friendships through this group, and I wish the new members as much fun as I had!

Another bee coming to an end for me is Modern Irish Bee.

MIB blocks Aug13 for G!

Geraldine, whose month completes the end of year 1, very kindly sent us pre-cut triangles and a definite design to make. 

My month in MIB was July, and this week I got the last of my blocks in -wanna see?

Isn’t it great!  Not all sewn together yet, and definitely one of the most modern designs I’ve ever gone for, but I love it!!  Thanks MIB ladies!

And last, but by no means least, my late Brit Bee blocks for Jennie.

Not as wonky along that bottom edge in reality – promise!

These Seminole style blocks were a real head scratcher, especially for someone as mathematically challenged as I am! Jennie sent us a selection of solids and a picture of an inspiration quilt and let us get on with it!

I hope these will pass, even though one block is larger than the other! (As striking as they are, I don’t see more Seminole blocks in my future any time soon!!)

Well that’s me all up to date! 

A shed load of class samples awaits my attention, which I’m hoping to get to when the kids are back into school on Monday!
