x & + Quilt Blocks : :

Today I'm finally sharing my do. Good stitches bee blocks for August! Love circle stitcher Ara Jane requested x & + blocks, a very popular tutorial written by Amy.

These blocks are super fun to make!

August x & + Bee Blocks for do. Good Stitches

I used only Art Gallery fabrics, but mostly scraps, from several different collections. They sew up to be an 8" square, unfinished, and were a cinch (once I found the time to make them), so we were asked to make three. If time weren't an issue this last month I would have enjoyed making more!

Now, I can not wait for the chance to make the assigned September blocks! Natalie created a new amazing tutorial that she's calling the Wonky Pinwheel Block, and you definitely should check it out. I LOVE it!!

I'm really hoping this month comes and goes a little slower than the last. I'm feeling very ready for Fall, how about you?  Happy September, friends!!

p.s. My Aurifil Giveaway is still happening here

  3. Love how you put fabrics together ~ it's one of the hardest things for me to do. I tend to want things to match but love the look of scrappy. Your blocks are wonderful and Amy's tutorial is great!
