Kaffe blocks for Amy

I had a backlog of podcasts to listen to, so I may have gone overboard when I made five blocks for Amy. What can I say? These were really fun and easy to make.

I had some pre-cuts from the Neptune line in my scrap pile, so I mixed those in with Amy's choices.

Amy, I hope you like them; my favorite is the one on the top of this pile. My least favorite is that big one...I wish I had thrown a warm fabric in there somewhere. Oh well!

October is my month; fabrics will go out this weekend!

Half & half

I've been enamored with this quilt ever since I saw it on Flickr a while ago. Needless to say, I was excited to see it included in Amber's inspirational pictures for her block this month.

This is the first block I've ever made for a virtual quilting bee. I'm sorry it's a little late. I hope you like it!

Amber's Block

I can't believe round one is over. Here's my start for round two:
I love how Amber puts so many prints together. She forces me to look at fabric in a different way and I'm always happy with what comes out in the end. I went with a wonky log cabin, but this time forced myself to mix it up a little more with varying log sizes and piecing logs together. I also left my rotary cutter alone until it was time to square the final block. I have to admit that I wasn't able to completely abandon my need to plan all of this, but I did go with the flow. When that bottom row didn't quite work out like I wanted, I just added to it with what I had left of another color. Surprise, the world did not come to an end ; )
*Don't worry Amber, that little dot on the blue fabric is just a droplet of dew, not a stain.
