#6köpfe12blöcke - QAL - July "Snail's Trail"

The July block from the #6köpfe12blöcke QAL is called "Snail's Trail" and the instructions are presented by Dorthe alias lalalapatchwork.

I had decided that I made my block bi-colored. I took my main blue fabric and add a cappuchino brown fabric.

Look's nice, but I fall in euphoria and I made a mistake... Note to me: RTFM!!

I think I call it the "Snail Fail". Now there was the time for the seam ripper.

And now I'm done! Thanks to Dorthe for the instructions.

#6köpfe12blöcke - QAL - June "Log Cabin"

The next block is hosted by Gesine. But it is not only one block she presented, there are two blocks!!
I start to sewed the "Log Cabin" cause I had sewn a similar pattern for a pillow. --> here

The instruction was very clear and so I sewed the block between Lunch and Dinner ;o)
I used again my nearly last scraps of blue main fabric and matching patchwork fabric.

When I get some more sewing time between kids caring, house building, work and others I'm realy sure I will sew the "Pineapple" and "Snail's Trail"

Notebook Supplies Bag

My husband is from time to time on the road for busisness. For this reason he wanted a bag for his notebook mouse, cables, plugs and other stuff.

 He wanted some dividers in this bag too, of course they are adjustable by velcro.
I work meticulously on a pattern for such a case and in the end my husband had a stable and universally usable bag on his trips.

#6köpfe12blöcke - QAL- May - "Dutchman Puzzle"

This time on the QAL  of #6köpfe12blöcke I sewed the "Dutchman Puzzle" The instruction is hosted from Katharina a.k.a. greenfietsen

The block is very versatile, and I tried so many options. It was hardly to dicide on of these options.

At the end I sewed the second version.

Now my blue main fabric is running out of stock and I have to order quickly some meters.
