For the last month I have been receiving some rather lovely Bee blocks.
Now I'm quite new to virtual quilting bees. I've been a member of the do.Good Stitches Bee
for about 6 months but so far I've just made the blocks and sent them off to be made into a quilt for a very good cause.
I joined the 3x6 Bee
and we just completed a quarter and I got to receive blocks as well as make them - WooHoo!!!! I asked for blocks to make a quilt for our camping trips, using primary colours. These are the lovely blocks I received.
I love all the blocks I received and I think it's really obvious how much thought and effort went into each of them. Here is a little close up of some of my favourite parts of some of those blocks.
I was lucky enough to get to be part of the Brit Bee on flickr and I got to be Miss June and asked my lovely Bees to make me 2 disappearing 9 patch blocks using Dream On by Urban Chiks and a little smidge of Cath Kidston. I am absolutely LOVING the beautiful blocks they have sent back :) I forgot to include my own blocks and I still have a couple of blocks to come back to me but this gives a little taste of just how delicious my quilt is going to be! Yay!!!
Next month in the do.Good Stitches Bee I get to be a quilter! I am very excited (and a bit nervous!) I am planning a very girlie quilt for Project Linus
. Here is a little mosaic I am going to show my circle to give them inspiration. Dancing Girls and postage stamps!!!
details of each block can be found on flickr
What do you think? I think it is going to be a bit fabulous!!! And I think a boy version would be amazing too!
Hmmmm might get back to you on that........
Happy Sunday! :)
