I am also Thankful for having an extra day off, to be able to create with fabric which I truely enjoy with my whole heart. I just finished up all of my bee blocks for May. Some of them had me intimidated, but I completed them and passed the test with flying colors and some of them I enjoyed so much, thinking I would never do them on my own pushed me to where I really enjoyed making these and am now contemplating completely changing one of the wedding quilts i have planned for October.
Another wedding has popped up as well, so I am having some bee buddies from the Simply Solids Viridian group help me make some blocks for their quilt as well. It is called a Patchwork Chevron Quilt, it is a pattern from the Moda Bake shop, here are my sample blocks. It went together real easy and I think it will look great! I get to be the Mama Bee for June. Colors the couple like are Aqua/turquoise, orange and I thought Grey would be a nice compliment.
Example blocks for the Simply Solids Bee Viridian group for June.
This is the block for Jenniffier from the Sunday Morning Quilts Bee for May. I accidentally only made it 3x3 blocks, but luckily caught myself before I mailed it out and realized I was supposed to make it 4x4 blocks. It is for a young boy who has had a traumatic event almost 2 months ago and is still hospitalized so I fussy cut the centers to crate an I-Spy effect as requested.
This is for my Secret Pal at the Fabric Basket Swap. I don't know who has me and she doesn't know I have her!! I am also packing it with goodies, I am still thinking and adding. It is supposed to be sent out between June 1-5. I have never made one like this before and it also was soo fun. The hardest part was picking out the fabrics. I am a lipstick diva and thought this was soo cute, she said she also likes funky fabrics. So I pulled colors from it for the rest and then the bottom and handles are natural linen.
This is currently one of my favorites. I made a modern dresden plate for Brandy in the Bee Sew Modern Bee for May. I am very happy with it, I hope she is too! This block wants to make me switch my choice for my brother's wedding quilt. I am still contemplating it. It would be the 3rd time I change my mind.
This is for Anna from the Sew Modern Bee for May. I also love how this came out. All fabrics from my stash. I love this bee as it is a stash busting bee.
I also am the Bee Mama for the month of June for the Sunday Morning quilts bee. It is difficult as I really like alot of the quilts in the book and we have made alot of blocks for others that I will probably have people repeat a block we have already made. Any suggestions? I will be all ears, I have a few days yet till I have to decide. Enjoy the weekend!
