August Blocks

Hi everyone. After much agonizing, I've finally decided on my blocks for the bee. I would like everyone to make improv pieced cross blocks. Above are some examples/inspiration photos. Three of the four are made with the fabrics I am sending. I would prefer them to be crosses, not plus signs and more rectangular than square. There can be one cross or several in a block. I will be sending enough fabric, but feel free to add your own touch if you'd like, but the colors are black, gray, kiwi, cream and aubergine. I would prefer no additional colors. No stress with these blocks. Straight or wonky, border or no border, perfect or imperfect (there is no imperfect). Please just have fun and enjoy the creative process. I can't wait to see the results. Thanks, Pam

July Tutorial!

Hi everyone!  I'm mailing out your fabric tomorrow!  I included the template and fabric for 2 blocks.  I am including another tutorial here for you so you can see how to assemble the block.  It's super easy.  Each block takes 4 charms.  I included a border strip for each one.  One is orange the other is pink.  It should work out perfectly for you to make each block.  I am super excited!
