Pink and Brown Charity Block

Each month, all 16 members of the Elgin Piecemakers make blocks in predetermined colours. Some members are known to make their blocks at the last minute before the meeting, but I like to get my blocks done ahead of time.

September's colours are pink and brown so I dug through my stash and found some pink and brown civil war fabrics.  I have been making mostly liberated blocks this year, inspired by Gwen Marston's  Beaver Island quilt retreats that I have attended the last three years. 

This month's block is made from four Kathy's Blocks.  Kathy is a long time BIQR quilter and she invented this block by accident one year and it became an inspiration for many quilts made by several of the people who have attended Gwen's classes and who have read Gwen's Liberated Quiltmaking II book.

Here is my block...

I have also been working on my wonky house block but you will have to wait to see my progress until Sunday when I will post pictures and link to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching.
