September Bee Blocks

It's only the 11th day of the month and I have completed my bee blocks for September. {Can you tell I usually don't finish this early in the month?}

This month's Stitch Tease queen is Hadley. She asked for low-volume scrap vomit blocks with "NO VOMIT". These soft colors have sparked me to make a low-volume quilt of my own.

For the cross block for this quilt, Hadley asked that we use grey, pink and aqua.
I think she is going to have a beautiful quilt when she receives all her blocks from our bee.

Next up is the Modern Stitching Bee. The September queen is our fearless Finish-a-Long leader, Leanne.
Leanne asked for Economy Blocks using acid green, yellow, orange, aqua, purple, magenta and orange. She wanted a black and white stripe or text that appears as a stripe for the thrift portion of the blocks.



It took me two tries and a little unpicking, but I finally got the stripes going in the right direction.

I have to admit that both queens were very specific in their requests this month and that only means that they are going to end up with very beautiful quilts. 
Thanks, girls, for challenging me!

Great job! Are you aware you posted 2 pictures of the same block on this post? Looks like something I would do.

I have said it before and I'll say it again - you are one talented chicka! Look at all those pretty points.

Looking good Di! Hadley's first block is making me want to break out into low volume!

I agree with Hadley. And thank your for making such lovely blocks, and for humouring me on the fussy instructions.
