I'm behind again....

So I'm behind on my blocks for the Quilt-A-Long. Not a huge surprise.
However, I have gotten a lot of other things done.

What's this you ask? It's my newly finished sewing machine cover! I LOVE IT!!!!! It ties on either side with ribbon, so it's fast and easy to get on and off. The fabric I used was from Sorbet, by Moda. I got the idea over at Sew, Mama, Sew! Check out the tutorial from Jessie over at Tiny House.

I have also just finished my first two blocks for Stash Bustin' Bee International. Basically, every member is assigned a month. When it's your month, you send a “scrap” of fabric to each of the other 11 participants by the 1st of your assigned month. The quilters will use their own stash to complete your block, incorporating the fabric you send.Quilters will send back the completed block by the end of the month, along with a scrap from their own stash, just to spread the stash love!

This was my first block. Lish, who had this month, requested pinwheels, stars, or spinning things. The flower print was the fabric that was sent to me, the red and blue are from my stash. This block was 12.5", and I was pleased with it.
I had enough fabric left over to make this 6.5" pinwheel block. Again, I was pleased with my first effort. Until I saw Marilyn's block. Her block blew mine out of the water.
