January Catch-Up!

I am struggling to shake a cold that has been hanging on from early December….seems like everyone I know either has this cold or is coming down with it. I have spent the last week sewing like crazy to catch up on unfinished projects. I received three bee envelopes in the mail on Tuesday, putting me even further behind.

Today I finished my block for Sara in the Journal Round Robin Bee.  This is it:

The pattern is called Spinnaker. It is one of my favorite compass patterns. Sara asked for a compass block made from Bali Batiks. I would not have thought to use batiks for a compass but the result is very pretty. The blocks have a stained glass appearance.

Here is Sara’s group of blocks so far:

Lots of variety in size, shape and color combinations. I am sure it will be a striking quilt when it is finished.

Back to the sewing room to do some more catching up!

Until next time,
