A few little blocks

Well not only time seems to disappear since we have come back at the beginning of September but the summer went like a flash. We traveled back and forth to France quite a lot so there was little time to sit at my sewing machine and enjoy some sewing. Which of course means that I am behind with quite a few of my bee blocks. I spent some time last week-end trying to catch up, working on a variety of blocks. Letters should be flying out of my house soon!

I first made my wonky star block for Marg for the Sibling Together Bee. I took inspiration from Angela's Stargazing block in the Modern Blocks book but for a 20' block, I needed more than 3 stars!
I also made one of the 2 log cabin blocks for Susy. One more to make and I can send those back too!

I am really really behind with my + and x blocks as well (like a few months behind) but at least I started cutting some fabric last week and completed 2 blocks. I have a lot more pieces cut so hopefully there should be some more soon!

I made one more yellow granny square using the tutorial I posted in August for the Granny Block Bee.

And I made some September blocks too! Muriel wanted some flying geese for Bee Europa and she sent some pretty fabric too! We made the blocks using the non-waste method where you start with one big square for the geese and 4 small ones for the sky. A great method when you want to make 4 geese with the same fabric.
