Busy as a (Quilting) Bee

I'm all caught up on Virtual Quilting Bee blocks!

This one's for Grace:
VQB Block - Grace
(No, my iron isn't broken again...)
This one's for Eren:
VQB Block - Eren
This one was the most time consuming, but SO much fun!
It's for Sarah, who requested that we add texture but not color.
VQB Block - Sarah
I've always wanted to do some smocking.

Oh. Wow. Love that smocking! I started to learn how to do smocking 2 days before my second child was born and haven't returned to it since
(25 yrs. ago)!

Wow! I just found you through salt marsh designs and this is so fun. I love the texture. Did you do that yourself or was it part of the fabric? Very cool.

I tried smocking like that for a top for my daughter - in grey also. I love the idea of using it on a quilt block.
