8two8 March and April

These are blocks I made for Tia for the 8two8 group. Tia wanted liberated stars, 4 to a 15" block -which proved quite a challenge :) But we all managed, and Tia has already put the quilttop together. She's such a fast quilter!!
Next up was Lisa, and she asked for any pattern, in black and white.
I have nevet worked with black and white before, so it was fun to try :) I am very happy she likes these.
I have 7 days left to finish my paper, and it looks like it'll be fine. I am very impatient, and cannot wait to get back to my sewing machine. I wonder if I can remember how to use it??

love the aqua and red stars - they are so pretty. And the black and white blocks are really striking. I sold 15 1/2 metre pieces of black and white the other day and as I was cutting it all was less inclined than ever to make a black and white quilt. But now looking at your blocks- they are really pretty! Sending you good paper finishing thoughts!

These are gorgeous! I love them all, but especially the last one; the black and white block pattern. Today is the day, then you get to play! I give you heaps of credit for working so diligently this semester. It had to be HARD to put aside so many things you like to do.
