Falling Bee-hind

I received my fabric parcel for May's Beehive in the first week of June.
Long story! But ... being a person who hates falling behind, I quickly put together Kat's gorgeous voile string blocks. I anticipate another super soft and snuggly voile quilt. I adore these!!

Andi's blocks for Kat

While I was at it, I made a couple of little blocks (5.5 inches) for Annabel. She is making a quilt for her little boy called "The Busy Sea at Night".

She has asked for pieced blocks, rather than applique which ... at this scale ... caused me a little anxiety. But in the end I really enjoyed making these 2 little blocks.

Now I just need to find the time and energy to get to the post-office!!

I love both of your little blocks. I tried a large boat last year and know that they are more difficult than they appear. Yours is fantastic and the fish is adorable. Great little boy blocks.

Andi, you're too nice! You can say: "because the person was a total deadbeat sending out her fabric..." as to why you're late. I love the blocks, and am so happy that you were able to contribute to this snuggly quilt. :)
