The Catch-up Continues

So...life continues to through wrenches in my neck of the woods. Nothing major, thank goodness, but enough to mess up my plans of sitting at my sewing machine and tuning out everything around me. This is near to impossible to achieve seeing as my sewing room is in my kitchen, er, is my kitchen table, and I have 4 kids!!!
This block I made for HandyCrafts of the Live Piecefully Virtual Quilting Bee! Due way back in March (SORRY Sara). I was actually intimidated by the Dresden Plate...as it turns out...way easier than expected! Live Piecefully is actually done now...I'm looking forward to seeing what the completed quilts look like...which means...I need to put together MINE!!!
Where did I PUT all those blocks????
This is the April block for Renaissance Rubia of the MishMash StashBash Bee. She sent out a few scraps of coordinating fabrics and we were asked to make a wonky block with our stash. I thinked it turned out great! I love scrappy, still not sure how I feel about wonky?!?!? I have a thing, I guess, about straight lines, and right angles?!?!? Who knew???
This block is for Shadrach Meshach & Abednego of The Maple Leaf Bee! She asked us to make a spiderweb block using the green 'kites' and a few scraps of random fabrics she sent us, along with scraps from our stash! LOVE this block!!! I can't wait to see how it all looks together. She also asked us to sign our name and our 'place' on the block, which I forgot about until I was about to mail it! Glad I caught it in time!
I still owe one block to it's3o'clockinthemorning of the MMSB...which will be finished this weekend!
Happy Quilting!!!!

What is the pattern for the scrappy star block you made? I quilt for Quilts of Valor, and I'm trying to use of our groups 'strings' to make string blocks. This would be a great block to use for the quilts. Thanks.
