We're on Round 2 of the Bee formerly knows as the Kinky Bee (we need a new name but haven't quite got that far yet) and I'm up first as Ms September (let's skip the swimsuit section shall we?). I have promised to make my lovely niece Grace a quilt and hope to get it done in time for Christmas (this year! stop laughing!) so decided it would be good to enlist some help. I bought this big pile of Glimma a few months ago

I'm such a fan of Jess from the Elven Garden that it borders on unhealthy stalking *ahem*. Anyway, I loved her tippencanoe block as part of her and Jess's How Far Will You Go QAL but couldn't face making the 400 or so 5" blocks I would need so lovely Jess let me have the EQ7 block and I converted it to make a finished 12" block...
|much seam ripping needed as I am a numpty sewer today|
So the starter block is made and I'm now cutting up fabric to send out to the lovely ladies along with the paper piecing templates. I'm going to have to make a heap more but they're fun, as long as I concentrate. Where's that seam ripper gone?
