Blocks 24 & 81 - Tazzie

I've been so inspired seeing the NI Yahoo Group blocks being posted, as well as the lovely work that we're seeing here, that I finally got my act together and stitched up a couple of blocks.

This is block 24 that I just finished this evening. The brick red fabric in the flying geese units came from a Moda scrap bag, what a lucky find! And the print with the shells I have had for the very longest time - probably ten years. It's a favourite.

And here is block 81 which I finished during the week. It's fun seeing the gaps closing in my list of completed blocks. I think my finished total is 67 now.

Lovely blocks! They always look so perfect!

Yes, I agree with Kristie - they do always look perfect. It doesn't matter how busy you are, you seem to manage to turn these out. I finished the big quilt I was making but went to a craft fair and now have several Christmas embroideries to do before the event. I've even added to my Insane fabrics but can't seem to find the time to do a block. Not giving up, though...

That Shell fabric is a favourite of mine too. Looks great in that block which BTW looks so totally different to mine.
Have a great week
