Gretchen's Alpine block - Building Blocks Tuesday

Alpine Block for Gretchen

Just when I didn't think I had any blocks to share for today, I remembered this little beauty that I made for Gretchen a couple of weeks ago before I really set in on the Technicolor Galaxy.

I really liked the colors that Gretchen chose; that grey is Kona Charcoal and it is really lovely!  She also wanted teal and a white with black in the centers.  The blocks she gathered are stunning.  I can't wait to see how she puts them all together.

This is the Alpine Block and was one of the many Bee Hive blocks from last year.  You can find the tutorials HERE on Blossom Heart Quilts.  Alyce is currently doing a Modern HST sampler QAL, which looks like fun.  And she is only 2 blocks in, so there is plenty of time to catch up if you want to join in.

What blocks have you working on this week?  I would love to see.  Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open until the first Monday of next month, but I will repost it every Tuesday until a new month starts.
