PAussietivity Blocks, Bee Blocks, and Plans for Camp

I made a replacement block for PAussietivity* using the mustard Grunge and I'm pleased with it. I put the blocks back on the wall on top of the Aussie fabric just to see how the sashing will look, and it works well.
Blocks & Australian print for PAussietivity

My STLMQG bee, Sew Bee It, had a Sew In on Saturday. Marie provided the fabric for the wonky stars and the instructions, and asked us to raid our scraps and make two blocks. I was able to get one block made, and traded patches with a friend so I made the other block yesterday. I have leftover duplicate pieces that I'll give to Marie so she can scatter them around in other blocks to help unify her quilt.

I also got some more of the LC Triangle blocks made at the Sew In, but I still have more to finish. I'll finish them at camp/retreat this weekend. My priority for this week is to get all the sashing and border parts for PAussietivity cut and kitted up to work on at camp. I hope to get the top completely assembled. I'll take both PAussietivity and LC Triangles to camp plus a UFO that's already kitted up, so I should have plenty to keep me busy.

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times; check out all the design wall inspiration over there.

  1. PAussietivity looks great! I'm so excited to see how the Aussie fabric adds to the layout.

  2. I love the way your grunge blocks look with your sashing.

  3. The gold does work better with the other darker colors. Good luck with all your preparations for the retreat.
