As i mentioned in my previous post, i got sucked into doing another quilt-a-long which i saw on Lori's blog, last week. It was those scrappy HST borders, that won me over.
For this QAL you'll need to make your own 6inch block for the centre.
i happened to have this 4inch star block..
making lots & lots of 1 1/2inch hst's for the next border.. 36 in total... phew!!
and here's what they look like...
so now i've got to make another 44 hst's for the next border.. yikes, that's really going to spin me out.. i think i'll leave it for another day.
Earlier today, as i was doing a little blog hopping, i came across a sweet little block, by the name of Dandy, (complete with instructions), on Bonnie's blog
It is such a fun little block and i love the fabrics Bonnie used.
I simply couldn't resist making this little cutie, so i promptly went to my stash and pulled out some lovely poison green, bright yellow and a yummy Nancy Gere deep plum print, which arrived in the mail, yesterday.
and i got to work...
and here's the finished block ~ 6 1/2" x 6 1/2"
i told you it was cute.. a dandy little block indeed!!
In the meantime, i might just go and pull out some bits & pieces from my scrap basket and perhaps make a start on those scrappy hst's :)))
