February Bee in Oz block


Shruti fabric went MIA at the end of January, turns out that her hand written in ink with fountain pen addresses got washed off her parcels when the whole lot got wet. They had been sitting at the International mail sorting office in Mumbai. Shruti readdressed them and mine arrived yesterday, with patchwork on tonight today was a good time to make a block. We are all making a block from Elizabeth Hartman's Tokyo Subway. We were all sent a fat quarter to keep and strips of white for the block and use our scraps to make up the block, everyone was given a block to make, I made number 7 there are 25 blocks in the quilt and Shruti is in 2 bees so most of the blocks will get made.
With so many different fabrics (some washed other not) my block the pressure was on to match seams, I hope I did an OK job.
It will be fun to see what everyone else does.
see the seams in the bottom row are wonky,
maybe when it is all together they will sit better
Finished block

Your block looks great. I haven't started mine yet as I have to get a couple of the solids I didn't have in my stash.
