Finishing Touches

I have just this week finished my Modern Quilt Bee blocks.  I do have a few weeks up my sleeve, but March is going to be just crazy, so I'm ahead on one thing for once.

I wanted to do hexagons for everybody, but I did a test block and it took simply ages.  In the end I went with another favourite - flying geese.  I used this tutorial as a guide, which is quite good and produces 4 blocks with the same colour geese.

It worked within my block design, but you would need to go the traditional method if you didn't need a multiple of four.

I wrapped them in tissue and used a stationery tutorial (using, you guess it fabric scraps) to make some cute little tags (the link is on my Scrap Bag Tutorial page up the top).

Lala had a great time dipping into the button stash to add little embellishments to the tags.

  1. Love your flying geese and they're even more beautiful in real life! Lisa's block looks amazing- I think you're right that this works best with the stronger colours.

  2. How did I miss this yesterday?? My block arrived today - thanks heaps! I love it :) Oh and Neon Trees - great band :)

  3. OMG how did I miss this?
