So I've accomplished a bit of sewing, although it has mainly been cleaning and tidying. Those are necessities because I think I was avoiding my sewing room because I would get overwhelmed when I walked in there. So many projects going at one time! But now that the doll quilt is done and sent and received, I can get back to my usual assortment of projects. There are of course too many, but there are bee blocks to make and quilts to work on and a hand bag to make for another swap. I already shared my bee block for Penny, but I've also made my bee block for Corey for VIBees!
Corey very sweetly sent us all the petals precut for this block, so it went together fairly quickly. I think that this block took a couple of hours? Hmm...late night sewing. I never remember how long things really take. She asked us to top stitch this all with a straight stitch in white thread, so you'll see that is the way it is constructed.
I LOVE that she is not afraid of color and pattern. This is a bold block! And she is getting at least 12 of them for a quilt!! I bet she is making more. That is going to be a fantastically scrappy quilt.
Oh and I wanted to let you know that I was poking around on the Interweave Website looking for info on the magazine with my projects and I saw that you can not only order it directly from then as a hard copy, but they also have a digital copy available as a PDF download! So all you international folks can do that if you are so inclined!
Okay. Wish us luck with the open house!
