8two8 and a sneak peek

Sarah and LauraJay invited me to be a part of a wonderful quilting bee, 8two8. We are 8 friends and we will make 2 blocks a month for 8 months :)
The ladies in this gruop are all very very talented, so I am very worried about meeting everyones expectations!!

First up is the lovely Katy. She requested log cabins with I SPY centers. The blocks are 15" square, and that is quite a challenge for me. I am not used to working with blocks that large, but I had a lot of fun making these!
These blocks are for February, so I am a little early -can you believe it?! And March is my month!! So I'll be putting on my thinking cap :)

These next pictures are a little preview of another project I have been working on...
I can't show you the whole thing, since it is a present, but after it has found it's new home, I will show you what it is.
I am very happy with it, that's all I can say for now!!

Love the I spy blocks and the mystery quilt looks awesome from what I can see!

Katy said...

you're worried? Imagine how I feel - thankfully my month is first, and if all else fails i can run for the hills and hide should anyone request anything too difficult!!!

I LOVE the blocks you've made for me, I can't wait to get my sticky paws on them and sew a huge quilt together!

The sneaky peek looks wonderful - what is it what is it?!

I love all your blocks. Sometimes it is the ones that are different and challenging that we loved making the most. Your sneak peek looks intriguing. I can't wait to see the whole thing complete.

You are amazing with all the sewing you get done! I am sure you have nothing to worry about when it comes to skills - your blocks look amazing. And like everybody else I can't wait to see what that last thing is - a kaleidoscope-something??

Hia Tine, don't worry- the quality of your work is beautiful.Wonderful matching corners.

Lovely little I spy block idea. I am very intrigued with your mystery present. First white as a background and then red...hmmm a fancy barber's pole? decorated candy cane? LOL
