Hi ladies!

I know I am a bit early, but its summer and things are quite hectic for me the next couple months.

Anyways…. Its great to be with you all again for a THIRD year! Amazing how fast time flies!
Since my month just happened to be July, I figured I would honor 4th of July and have you all help me out with the "Sparkler" quilt designed by freshlypieced :)

Sparkler quilt by freshlypieced

My plan is to have you each sew together two blocks. The way this quilt is designed, you use one color of fabric to make a set of two blocks. One has white as its background and the star in color and the other has a color background and white star if that makes sense. Here is one sample set I made up:
Sparkler Blocks

I will have all the pieces cut out for you so all you need to do is sew :)
I'm not super picky with my seams so you can just press them whatever way works best for you. I also forgot to include my return address in the package so if you need my address you can look at the google doc or just message me! Thanks everyone!

Kristina, your blocks went in the mail yesterday. Most of my bee blocks are late for the last month or two so it was great fun to get yours finished before your month even starts. It should take them a couple of weeks to get back to you.

Wonderful! Thank you!

Sounds good to me!

I finished one of the blocks and damaged the second beyond repair. :( Some of the pieces were untouched. I am so sorry. I will put the completed block and the fabric left for block 2 in the mail on Monday.
kristina.withak 5 years ago
Mary,
Your block came today, and the one actually wasn't damaged at all and I was able to finish it up!

Thank you all!
QuiltGenius 5 years ago
I'm so glad it wasn't damaged. I thought I had sewn the pieces backwards and since I had already trimmed, I was afraid to do any more and waste the fabric. :)
