A collection of blocks and some blog button work

Somehow I've turned into a blog button designer for a couple of my quilting groups. I totally don't know what I am doing, but it all comes together in the end. And though my groups are all about fabric and quilting, I don't end up putting that into the button! LOL. I guess I like to look a little different...you know, because I am a little different. :)

I got upgraded to moderator status for Modern Swappers because I am officially, as Amy calls it, "Logo Girl". Hmmm...sounds like I need a costume for that. It's very super hero sounding isn't it? I offered my opinion on her first logo and sort of took it over. So she's handed it off to me. Haha! She didn't know I don't really know what I'm doing.

But I came up with this:

I wanted to do something that evoked packages being sent. After looking at lots of different graphics I decided that the simple mail box was the right image. Packages looked too much like Christmas presents.


And because I'm always volunteering to tackle things like this that I don't know how to do, a while back I made a button for a new bee that is starting in January. It's been named the V.I.Bees, a little play on VIPs. So I thought the button should have someone that looked like a very important person. But we're not talking Brad and Angelina here or (and it seems ridiculous to put them in the same sentence - I'm not equating them!!!) a President or World Leader. I wanted something sweet and yet a little classy. So I opted for this:

Isn't she cute? I love the colors and her necklace! So Thoroughly Modern Milly! (How many people did I just lose with that reference? LOL)



And I finally have all 6 of my blocks from beehive in the 3 x 6 Bee! You might remember that a couple of months ago I made a collection of the same block design in different colors. Well each of them got a block from me, and now I've got a block from each of them. My color scheme was grey, white and green. Look at what the lovely ladies made for me (if you click on the picture you can see who made what)


My Blocks received from Beehive 12 - 3rd Quarter


I think that they look great together! It's just amazing that they all blend together so well...and I can't wait for the next round and my new hive to see what new blocks I get. I'll need a few rounds of this in order to make a quilt! I've already been collecting block ideas for what I would like to do. Thinking simple. ;)


So thanks to my peeps from Beehive 12! We were awesome and you all did great work.
