Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM Blocks 1 & 3

It is happy dance time! 

I am now caught up on the blocks for the Sun, Sand, and Sea 2017 Block of the Month hosted by Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy.

There is a Sew Incredibly Crazy and Friends Facebook Group for those participating in this BOM. You may find it here.

Block 1 was designed by Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy.
I have always wanted to try making dresden plates. 
I am not sure why the idea intimidated me. 
The block was a lot of fun to put together!

You may find Amy's blog post here.
The pattern is here.

Block 3 was also great fun to see come together!
This darling block was designed by Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks.
You may see here blog post here.
The pattern may be found here.

I was sure I measured everything accurately, but somehow my white strips were about 1/8" too big, so my corners did not line up.

I told my family they could officially call me 
The Queen of Wonky Blocks.

My 20-year-old son grinned and said it did not matter if the corners lined up or not, because the birds were so cute. 
Thank you, Carla! You saved the day with your cute applique.

The photo at the top of this post shows the first 4 blocks together. The 5th block (which will sit in the center area) will be released in June. 
I can barely wait!

Thanks for stopping by,

White meets white. If you hadn't said anything, none of us would have noticed. =) Beautiful to see it all together this way.

I like all the different blocks and together they look amazingly fun. Your colours are spot on.
