circles and swirls and strings

oh my!!!
the Old School Saturday Sampler BOM meeting for may was ... 
i dunno... 
two weeks ago... 
has it really been that long?!? 

anywho... 
this month's assignment was to make TWO blocks and then put the sashing and corner stones on the eight blocks that are the bottom of the quilt... 

i didn't like the assigned blocks again - big surprise so i made these...
 Circle of Geese and Strings Around the World
the swirly world is a design from Urban Threads named Leafy Earth and took a whole lot longer to stitch by hand than i thought it would...

but it is pretty doggone cool and was definitely worth the effort...

and here are the eight blocks all together...
oooo!!! fairie frost cornerstones!!! where else can i go with this?!?
these are rolled up and put away till june's meeting on the 8th... 
so... 
the center is done and the bottom is done... 
and none of it looks much like this...
not only was this pattern EXPENSIVE - it is also riddled with errors!!!
which is a good thing, innit?!?

Yes! It's a good thing! Yours is much better than the pattern. I don't think I would have ever participated seeing the pattern, but yours is great and would convince me to take part.....maybe....I swore I'd never do another one of those Satruday things! Haha

Love your blocks, your quilt will certainly be original!

You have a far superior design than the original. Love your new blocks.

As usual, I'm impressed. You're so clever.
