Modern Irish {Scrappy} Bee: October Blocks

I totally cheated.  I knew what blocks Tomomi wanted for her bee month ahead of anyone else as I pre-schedule the bee block blog posts to appear on the first of the month.  I cheekily packed up all of the fabrics I needed to make her blocks and brought it with me to the Modern Quilters of Ireland retreat last weekend (27 Sept).

Tomomi was looking for book shelf blocks, but with a twist.  She wanted to blocks 11-13 inches long x 12.5 inches tall with various sizes of books and Ash background.  However, she wanted us to each create a section on her bookshelf with a theme.  Humm....now that's interesting.

I choose to give her a section of bird watching guides:


and a section with cook books:


Tomomi, I hope you like them!  I know several other hive members have started thinking of really super, creative themes for you.  I am sure will you will love what they create!

I love these! And the plan to have themed books is a fun way to spice things up and make you all think creatively.

What a fun block, and I love the theme idea! I need to add this book to my to do list!

How fun! I love her request, and your themes are wonderful. The birds particularly tickle my fancy. :)

Surely this must be a record for completing blocks? Even though I'm not part of the Bee I am really looking forward to seeing this months blocks. Someone has to do some gardening books for Tomomi.

Looks fab, just wondering how this Bee Blocks thing works? New to sewing just over a year in now and these blogs are so fascinating to me ...
