Bee Blocks

A couple months ago, I was invited to be part of an online quilting bee, and I thought it'd be fun, so I said yes. December is my month... and I chose to do a version of Denyse Schmidt's What A Bunch Of Squares quilt. I gave approximate measurements instead of use the templates for the blocks because I wanted them all to be just a little different.

Block one.

Block two.

Block three.

Every bee member makes two blocks so together with mine, I'll end up with 25. I reckon it'll end up being a queen-sized quilt, but I don't know if it'll go in our room yet. Goodness knows we don't need more (especially since there's a couple ideas I have for quilts for our room... ahem. Sorry honey.). Maybe I'll gift it but it seems wrong to gift my first quilting bee project. We'll see.

In other news, I've finished hand quilting the first commissioned queen-sized quilt :) Yay me! I just need to get the binding on, so I can begin the second quilt. Pictures to come.

And happy birthday to Julie :)

I think you should see how it turns out. If it is absolutely your colors, I say you should keep it!

that's one of my favorite quilt designs. I love the floral fabric you're using in the center of the squares
