Blocks blocks and more blocks!

Wow, I love making blocks! Here are the most recent ones...

For Bee Inspired:
Blocks for Ann
Maverick Stars for Ann. Luckily my cousin was in town and she helped out and made a couple of blocks!
Block for Natasha
A hexagon block for Natasha. Took a lot of time, but it was fun to make. I think because of the time it took to make it was hard to mail this one off!

For Around the Block:
Blocks for Louise
Two log cabins in fun springy colors for Louise. Her quilt is going to be so fun!

For the block of the month from Amitie, Green Tea and Sweet Beans, I made these:
GT&SB BOM - Month 1 Block 1
GT&SB BOTM - Month 1 Block 2
I am really really enjoying this block of the month. It's all done by hand too!

And lastly, a new project with my quilting friends, the Civil War Diary Quilt. Here are blocks 1 and 2:
001_Alarming_Conditions
CWDQ: 002 Oath of Allegiance
Here is what the whole quilt looks like so far.

I feel like I haven't really done much this month. Working on these little blocks is fun, but it's been so long since I've finished a quilt!

On another note, Corgi Fair is coming up, hope to see some of you bay area corgis there!

Oh wow! Those are some beautiful blocks. The hexagon one is just stunning. I would have a hard time parting with that too! :)

These look awesome! Love the pinwheel one! Now that I have a totally cute subject to sew for, but don't have a spare moment to sew... what's the point of having kids?! :P

So are you going to the corgi fair? We were thinking about it, but not sure if we can work it in... but the thought of finally meeting Lucy definitely makes it much more appealing :) What's she going to dress up as?
