July BLock for Hive 4

First up I'd like to apologise for being so absent from this bee so far - I've had a really hard few months and haven't had much time (or energy) for sewing. Thank you all for bearing with me!

For my blocks for July, I've decided to ask you all to make a block that I designed for Quiltjane's Desperate Housewives Quilt. It's called a woven chevron block and the tutorial can be found here.

In terms of colours I'd like them to be similar to the colours in the block I made - Kona Ash for the background, and then print fabrics similar to Kona Surf and Kona Orange. I am quite happy if you incorporate some solids into it, but I'd like some prints there as well if possible.

If everyone could please make two blocks (they should be 8.5" unfinished) that would be brilliant!

Any questions, please just shoot me an email and I'll get back to you asap!

xx Jess

Well, yet another test of my dubious accuracy, there really is nowhere to hide on this really impressive block. The mixture of blocks should be really exciting. I too will have to buy more fabric, such a hardship!!I will do my best to post the block online before the end of July but we are away on holiday until 16th so you may be a little late in receiving my blocks in the flesh as it were. Will ask Royal Mail to do its best.
