Hello Kitty QAL, Quilt Blocks

Blocks. . blocks. . blocks. .

February 26, 2012

It’s funny, it feels like I have a list of blocks to do and so little time.

Friday night, I took a little nap after work and then the hubby headed off to his poker night and I worked on the Hello Kitty quilt til it was done. What does that mean? Oh just staying up til 3am, crzy right? But it’s done and I love how it turned out:


Now I have to figure out how to quilt it. . any suggestions?

If you don’t know me, I’ve got a loud mouth and I’m such a complainer. I’m in a local bee and Rachel asked us to do the Interlocking Seasons block by Ms Parfait Cafe. I’ve got to admit one of the hardest block I’ve had to do and I’m still not happy with how the center block. It’s hard because I want to make something for someone and make it the best I can.

I’m also making a couple classic log cabin blocks, only got one done:

Kind of girly huh? The next one will be more manly promise.

    I love Hello Kitty, she turned out fabulous. It’s such a shame that you can’t do the QAL. Well done on finishing her.

    HK is awesome. How about some loose loopy flowers? They would compliment her cute bow 🙂

    You are doing such a great job Amy! I love the Celtic block and the log cabin. The down side of your new love of sewing is that we never see you 🙁

    Your HK looks amazing!! As for quilting, some nice straight lines would totally accentuate the pixel-y look, but I know what a snooze-fest straight line quilting can be. Great bee blocks, and I think your Interlocking Seasons really does look great 🙂 I’m sure Rachel will love it!

    Oh, HK is perfect!! I love the loopy flower idea, to go with her bow. Any way you quilt it, it’s going to be gorgeous!

    I can’t see the interlocking block for some reason, I’ll go peek in flickr.
