Getting Back in the Groove…

Nothing like a two-week vacation to Maui to get a girl tan, rested and ready to tackle some projects!

In the Journal Round Robin Bee, Vickie asked for a star block of any size, using pieces of an adorable owl print. This is Vickie’s starter block:

She asked that we use fabrics that would go well with her color choices in this block. I had a block in mind for her but when the bundle arrived, the block I was going to make for her had already been made by another member of the bee. Drat! ?So I designed my own block for her and I hope she likes it. This is mine:

The star points in the center of the block are strudy perches for her owls. The star points at the back of the block acknowledge how important faith is in Vickie’s life. Her journal page that accompanied this package attests to the fact that she feels very empowered by her faith. I really liked the angled, scrappy border she used on her block, so I used something similar. I wanted this block to feel very personal without being overtly religious. I hope she enjoys it.

I do not have any other bee packages that need work (thank goodness), so now it is time to turn my energy to catching up on the Farmer’s Wife project. I am at least eight blocks behind so it is time to head to my sewing maching.

Until next time,
