Before I start something new/else, I have played catch up with my bee blocks over the last week or so, I am getting there but I still have a couple to finish off.
Nicole had picked a "+ and x" block for her month for Sew Euro Bee an. She had sent us an assortment of black and white fabric with some accent colours, one red and one royal blue. I made her these 2 blocks using the accent red for the +
I really like the "+ and x" blocks too... so I might think about them for a future quilt.
Pippa had sent us some white background for 2 bright big kisses blocks from Sarah's tutorial here. I picked a pink and a turquoise fabric for her blocks. The pink is finished
and the blue is in progress for now, hoping to finish it tonight
February is my month in Bee Europa 2012/2013 so I have cut into my stash of London Cats/Paris Cats from Benartex that I had been holding for a while for "that special quilt" not knowing which one it would be! Well, it is now all decided as I am asking my fellow bees to make me some blocks from this tutorial by Elizabeth at Don't call me Betsy. Her quilt was featured on Moda Bake Shop a while ago. I have made a test block for it and this is what it looks like.
I have sent the package away now and I am really excited to see how my fellow bees will combine my fabrics!
Now I still have one "+ and x" block to make with solid fabrics for our first month of the Simply Solids Bee and a couple of other blocks to catch up with and I will be on top of the swaps etc. Hopefully I can show you a WIP of something else next week, although with Miss Strawberry Shortcake turning 4 I am not sure how much sewing time I will manage to get!
I am linking to Lee at WIP Wednesday (first time this year!) and to Jen at Building Blocks Tuesday.
