This block is called Lost At Sea. I've never done a block like this before. I like to do most sewing on the spur of a moment. Whatever strikes me as fun is how I sew. So this block was different for me. It's going to be the center of a medallion quilt. All the lovely Marcelle Medallions I've seen on the internet have given me the push to try my own version. But since I don't really like to follow directions I'm putting together my own medallion quilt.
A while ago I joined a block swap. My month isn't until November but I had decided on my design long ago. Everyone is to complete a 14" block with some sort of house design on it. This is one that I designed. I have already received three in the mail and they are adorable!
August's Bee member picked a five sided block, using any colors/scraps of our choosing. I hope she likes things bright!
I started these geese a while ago, just for fun but I think these will be my first border for the medallion quilt.
And finally this bundle of baby clothes...they were about to make their way to Goodwill but I just couldn't part with them. So I'm going to put them together as quilts for my daughters. They'll have to be mini quilts, I think. The girls are still little so they haven't outgrown too many years worth of clothes to add to a quilt! :)
I think that's it for today! I'm liking up with Better Off Thread, Quilt Story and Freshly Pieced!
Hopefully I'll see you back here soon!
