This gorgeous block was designed by my friend Lynne, who is both hilarious and madly talented. Seriously, madly talented. I implore you to visit her blog. You will be inspired! Sabah in my Sew & Bee Happy bee is making a red/white star quilt (fabulous idea!), and gave us some suggestions of the types of star blocks she liked, and Lynne's LynneBobSquarePants was one of them.
There's a kind of cute story behind the name: Lynne wasn't sure if there was already a block like this out there named something else, but decided that until she found one, she'd call her creation LynneBobSquarePants. She gave lovely directions for making our own so behold, FelBobSquarePants!
I'll be offline for a few days - my Mama, my sister, and niece are visiting all the way from "back East" as we Vancouverites call anything East of the Rockies. Woo hoo! I will leave you with a photo of one of my all-time favourite flowers. There is an apartment building on the way between our place and the grocery store that has the most lovely hydrangea bushes out front. I happened to have my camera with me the other day so I snapped a shot. Pretty, eh?
See you in a few!
One day I will make a red and white quilt! Love your Bob. And hydrangeas, too. Have a wonderful visit!!ReplyDelete
Love love love love love. That is all. : )ReplyDelete
Very nice block!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your visit! I just realized that we have a hydrangea bush in our back yard, and it's the same color!ReplyDelete
Great job with the block, Felicity! Red and white quilts are classics, aren't they? Have you seen pics of the American Folk Art Museum's exhibit in NYC? Amazing!ReplyDelete
Have a great time with your family. Hope the rain goes away!

Very nice in red and white. I laughed at the " all the way from "back East" as we Vancouverites call anything East of the Rockies" as I am in Nova Scotia and besides Newfoundland, you can't get much more east then me.ReplyDelete
