design camp rocks

just a quick post this morning to show you my nearly completed February block for the Design Camp 2 swap.

Its called connector blocks and it was harder than I thought to line those second little cuts up :)

but I love the style and will definately make this block again !

now just need to do the February mexican themed block for the long distance quilting bee - I'm hoping I can come up with something good even though I've never been to mexico :)

Here's to March going just a tad slower than February so that I can get my swap blocks done on time !


  1. Ooh a cactus! or Speedy Gonzalez! Well that's what I think of ! Good luck with that - love your connector blocks - lovely colours! Thanks for the chat yesterday/today!

  2. Oh I REALLY hope March is slower and more laid back than February! I love that block - it must be a little like the Missing Your Kiss block to make except you have to line up the sections.

  3. I've sewn many of these blocks, learned from Sandi Cummings in a workshop based on her book "Thinking Outside the Block." In fact, you can see some of the blocks I made in my "Dashing the Churn" quilt which is in the 2012 "Quilt Arts" calendar! See it here:
    My quilt comes up when you turn to April. It's a fun block to sew, isn't it?

  4. I really like your Connector blocks, really effective! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with for a Mexican block, what a fun theme. I've never been to Mexico but would love to go one day.
