Bee blocks--August and September

I finished up my blocks for the Believe circle of Do Good Stitches this week for August and September. Just because I'm in charge in September again and had to get them done at the beginning of the month.

Here are the asterisk blocks I made for August:

These were pretty fun to make and I will probably try them again sometime.

For September I decided to go with a minimal log cabin block in black/gray/pink/red/and/or white. Definitely inspired by Jacquie's work, specifically her Scandia Crush quilt. I admire Jacquie's modern quilting sensibilities (and her hard work ethic and she's just a great person overall) and am looking forward to seeing the blocks our group members will make. Here are the two I made:

This is our last weekend before school starts and I'm looking forward to spending most of it at home. I went with my 3rd grader to meet his teacher this morning and got the email notifying me where my middle schooler needs to go to get his schedule on Tuesday morning. We tried to start getting up earlier in the morning this week, but that didn't go so well. 6:20 a.m. is going to be awfully early on Tuesday....

Just popping over from the BELIEVE circle. I'm blogging my blocks and linking to your site. I have to say, I LOVE the dark navy asterisk block you made. Those fabrics are awesome! Really enjoyed the modern log cabin style. Thanks for hosting this month!
