July & August blocks

I've been productive, though sadly, not in time for the July deadline.. But look, I made an asterisk for Tara!
and a wonky star for Amanda Jean!

You know, I wasn't really worried when I got Tara's package in the mail, but I should have been.  That asterisk kicked my butt.  If you look closely, you'll notice I added a few extra seams.  You don't have to look that closely to see that I didn't square it up, giving Tara a chance to fix it as much as she needs to.  I did my best, Tara, but this wasn't easy.

On the other hand, my maverick star (one of my all time fave block patterns) was a breeze.  I know we don't join bees just to make the blocks we like, but it sure does make me feel good to know I at least did something right..

These two were fun ladies, and I hope you both enjoy them.  Should arrive by the end of the week..
Thank you~~


  1. They both look great! Those extra seams should not be a problem at all, and they add to the character of the quilt!

  2. i got my block last week. THanks Jessica! It looks GREAT! I love maverick stars, too. :)

    your asterick block looks good! i agree, it wasn't easy. glad you figured it out.
