February We Bee Learning Blocks

I had another productive Saturday (and it's not even over yet!).  I worked on blocks for the February We Bee Learning queen bee: Christine.  She asked for wonky pinwheel blocks in green and aqua with accents of grey and yellow.  We used a tutorial by Greenleaf Goods that was super easy to follow.  At first I had a hard time getting into the blocks but once I figured out my rhythm they went quickly.  I hope Christine likes them!

I liked making these so much that I jumped right into working on two mini quilts using the pattern adjusted to 2.5" foundation blocks instead of 3.5".  One will be for me and one will be a gift for a friend who's always 'complaining' about not having a quilt!

I also have to share this advice from Singer, circa 1949.  Thank you to my sister-in-law for sharing it with me.

I laughed out loud when I read it!  How many of us are guilty of sewing over doing dishes or laundry or cooking dinner (I'm guilty!).  I also must confess that I didn't bother putting on real pants on Saturday... sweatpants for the win!  Luckily my husband doesn't care if I'm a hot mess when he gets home, covered in thread and band-aids (because I changed my rotary cutter blade that day).

I did however, give up sewing time on Sunday night to clean our kitchen after we got out stove and fridge in!  We've been without for quite a while, so I was pretty pumped!

I'm linking up with Stitch by Stich for anything goes mondays.

Happy Quilting, let me know if you find French Chalk!


  1. LOVE these blocks ~ The fabrics and colors you used really caught my eye!

  2. Blocks are great! I am still laughing!! I don't think I have EVER put on a dress, lipstick or any other make up to sew LOL Guilty of leaving dishes in the sink and dog hair on the floor too :)

  3. Those blocks are great! I saw them on Flickr too. I love the colours. Well done!

    1. Thank you Elita! Glad you found your way here from Flickr.


I love hearing from you!
