My Block for Quilts Story Block Party

Here is my block for the block party!

I used yo yo's to sew in the bubblegum machine.  When I bought these Kona solids, I was just creating a solid stash.  I thought, will I use these super bright colors?  Oh boy, did I.  I actually had no gray and was really bummed to have to go to the store just to get a tiny bit of gray for the center.  Then I thought I should just look through my scraps, just in case.  There was this 3 by 3 piece of gray.  I do not remember using it for anything, clothes, crafts or whatever.  I was very grateful to have found it.  It saved me some cash and some time.

I did a Log Cabin design for the bottom portion.  For the top I did large Drunkard's Path pieces. The yo yo's give the circles a little dome, which adds to the feeling of gum balls. I couldn't be more happier on how this turned out.  I always feel like the "Jill of all trades, Master of None".  For once I had to take a step back and say hey, this came out pretty good.    I am pleased.  And  it was really, really, fun to boot !

Just wanted to let you know about the cool block party.  I heard about it on Twin Fibers. If you click the button below it will link you directly to Quilt Story for all the details.  Believe me you don't want to miss out if you love fabric.  Head on over there to check out the details.  I am pretty excited to see everyone's blocks.
