Two More Blocks

Sue, this info is for you--since there's no way to email you. The blocks are part of a Block of the Month activity using "made" fabric on a block called "15 Minutes of Play...Bumblebeans." the link is http://www.15minutesplay.com/.

Victoria, of Bumblebeans Inc. manages this blog where we try out various activities and tutorials, including how to make the fabric. Right now there are several things going on--the blocks of the month, a solids challenge that turned into a swap, and some bees (swaps). In the block of the month activity, different blocks are posted with tutorials, and we give them a try. Miki's block was a square within a star.

This next one was a pinwheel; directions posted by Margaret.




I realized while I was assembling it that a couple of the triangles had tips made out of the same orange as the background. So the tips disappear.

The tutorial for the next one was posted by Victoria. She calls it Beacon Lights.






Those will be the last ones for a while, as we leave this campground tomorrow and head for Canada. We'll spend 1 night at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls, Montana, 1 night in Fort McLeod, Alberta, and then 4 nights with no electricity in Bow River Provincial Park west of Calgary. Then after that I doubt I'll have time to sew for a while since we'll be busy seeing all the sights of Banff and Jasper.

about the triangles with the tips made out of the same orange as the background, they could be turned around, so the orange is in the centre, then there would be a contrasting colour for the tip.
