December – Scrappy Stars

December – Scrappy Stars

Welcome to December!    I am Karen N and I live in the suburbs of Cape Town in South Africa.  This month we are making a fairly simple star block.   I am very glad that I had the last month of the year, although Nann’s block is a hard act to follow!    The block finishes at 6-inches square, in either scrappy blues or scrappy purples.  You may make up to 9 blocks for the drawing. You will find the pdf pattern this link:  Dec2018 Block...

Three October blocks

Three October blocks

Here are my three blocks, for donation.   I had no Halloweeny  fabric, it’s not really a thing in South Africa, but at a local mini quilt festival last week I found one piece of fabric (out of a dozen vendors!) that I thought would be fine.  They sewed up quickly!  I think I will use these dimensions in future blocks.  Karen N in Cape...

Blocks In and Blocks Out

In the past week I have received Noon Light blocks from Angie N, Barbara P, Linda N and Kathleen T … thank you so much ladies, they are all beautiful!   I guess our incoming postal system is starting to move again as these were all mailed in early May! And yesterday I managed to get to the post office to say goodbye to my Californian Poppies being mailed off to Nann. Karen N in Cape Town, where it is cool but the sun is shining now, and...

Three Poppy Blocks

Three Poppy Blocks

Almost missed the deadline!  I have made three Californian Poppy Blocks, and they are for donation.   From time to time this month I kept looking at the list of blocks made, each time wondering why my three were not there, and then I remembered I still had to photograph them, and write a post…but me being at work, and the blocks at home, that was a problem.  And then kept forgetting to take the picture – lesson learnt, take the...

Noon Light Update

I have been anxiously checking my post-box daily for the past three months, and I am sorry to report that our postal system seems to have slowed down to almost a standstill.   The last envelope in was on 19 June….. Yesterday I was happily surprised to get a sixth envelope with blocks, thank-you Kathy S! I have now received blocks from: Cathy K, Christa, Kathy S, Linda E, Peggy M and Robin. To Angie, Barbara P, Cathy L, Kathleen, Linda N,...

Six trees

Six trees

These blocks were how I like to make blocks – big and trim!   I was also blown away by the fact that the triangles are perfectly equilateral!  All that with no templates – yay!  Thank you to Deana for the very-easy-to-follow pattern.  My six for donation this month.  Karen N in Cape...
