I'm currently in 3 bees, and have recently had my turn as queen bee in two of them. I was loaded up with blocks by fellow bee-ers at the recent Fat Qarterly retreat, so now I'm back home, I have rooted them all out of the various (and many) piles around my sewing room to see what I've got.
Firstly, June was my month in the Euro Siblings Together bee, I kicked the year off with a simple block called Linoleum. I asked for orange, lime green and turquoise - here's my original block.
And here's what I have now
Just one block missing, which we are currently trying to track down, then I can get it put together. I'm not sure whether to do some bright sashing, or whether to keep it white with coloured corner blocks. What do you think?
My other bee month is July in the Stitch Tease Bee. In this one, I asked for a a block with a white panel in the centre, square or rectangular between 5-8 inches, surrounded by scrappy blocks to make it up to 12.5 inches. In the centre I would like "a little something" . I don't mind what - embroidery, hexies, applique, paper pieced, machine pieced, whatever. Mine was a little bit of embroidery, which reminds me never to choose something with french knots again!
And here's what I have so far
It is so exciting seeing these blocks appearing - I just don't know what is coming next. It's going to make an amazing quilt!
That's enough for today I think. Hop over to Lee at Freshly Pieced to see what other people are up to.
