Fat Stash Bee - October Block

Yes! I'm already done with my blocks for October in the Fat Stash Bee. October was April's month. She asked us to do a garden fence block following this tutorial. I love her fabric selection for her quilt.


Here is the ones I received. Both are linen/cotton blends. They have a really nice texture.

The FQ is London Turquoise cotton/linen canvas from the Echino Nico 2011 collection by Etsuko Furuya for Kokka. LOVE it! We had to use her FQ as the center piece or the outer fabric, the sand strip for sashing and complete with fabric from our stash.

I think April's choice of block was a good one for her fabrics. The simple design will highlight the fabric prints. I dediced to continue in that direction by using her FQ as the center piece and using solid color Kona cottons as the outer fabric. I made two blocks, one in Purple and one in Pomagrante. These were the fabrics in my stash that best suited her FQ.

I had fun making those, chain piecing both blocks at once. They were quick and easy to do.

So here are here they are.

I hope you like them April. My only regrets is that I won't have any blocks to do for the bee until November!

  1. Hi, I just found your blocks over on flikr, they're great! I'm thinking of using the garden fence block for some Joel Dewberry Aviary 2 I have, but now I may have to go on a hunt for some of that Echino London fabric too! :o)
