Catherine's Wheel from Charm About You


--- to link up to the 2017 FALclick here! ---

Well I don't know what she's going to call her quilt but it definitely is starting to look like a Catherine Wheel to me! Here are the bee blocks I made for Catherine:


This is the Fireworks Block by Marcia Hohn, the pattern can be found here. I have to say I struggled with it a little bit - it made more sense when I read each page and the fabric requirements are at the end! I also had a hard time printing out the templates for the larger triangles ...

Really what's not to love in this so cute hexie log cabin, 2 of my favorite patterns

Last few blocks from Espritpatch

And a few more blocks before the month comes to an end. This week has been mainly about hand sewing, because my machine is away from me.
I squeezed one more Wanta Fanta block before the week-end, so I now need 5 more to finish my quilt top.


I also made my October hexie flowers for Carrie. I think it's the first time I am making batik flowers in 5 years + of swapping.

And one Lucy Boston block, I have a few more to make to catch up now...

My total block for October is now 38!
