To each their own - Building Blocks Tuesday (the early edition)

The Early Edition, since I will be a stop on tomorrow's "Say it With Flowers" Blog Hop.  I hope you will pop in to say hello.

Anyhoo... I never did showcase the wonky pinwheels I made for the We Bee Learning Bee in May.  Here they are:


We Bee Learning May

The Queen Bee for the month asked for "bright and cheery", and I'm not sure I accomplished that.  That cheddar sure is bright, and I think the red floral is cheery, but I'm not sure about the rest.  I hope she liked them in the end.

I must admit I didn't enjoy the construction process on this one.  You make a set of strips, cut them into squares, then cut them on the diagonal.  I still have trouble sewing skinny strips together, then when you cut on the diagonal and all those bias edges are on the exterior of the block - whew!  Mine all came out to size, but I am glad I am not the one sewing them together from this point.  To each their own!!

So what have you been working on this week?  I want to know!

Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open for a whole week.  And spread the word!


Quilter in the Closet

Rules:

1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!


Thanks for reading!

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
