I've had a very productive January so far, and have been able to finish up a lot of my goals for the 2015 FAL (more on those soon, weather permitting).
I also finished my bee blocks for this month over the weekend, while binge-watching the entire first season of Outlander on Xfinity (I'm already on the 5ht or 6th book, and I love it!)
The first blocks I made were for Nela, our swap mama for Stash Bee, hive 6. Nela requested swamp angel blocks, in complementary colors.
I also finished up Christina's blocks for our New Quilt Bloggers bee. These two were the most challenging bee blocks I've had so far--they each had 20 flying geese in them! I love how they look though, and I love her inspiration. I can't wait to see this one finished, maybe one day (when I feel like making flying geese again) I'll make some more of these blocks, I think they look great together. If you're interested, she has a tutorial on her blog.
Cheryl (our Queen bee for February) requested a super-sized scrappy tiles block, from her own pattern. This one was a lot of fun to make--and it was super quick. I love mixing up my blue scraps to get the perfect arrangement. I've been into scrappy blocks lately, so this was right up my alley. This block was 24 x 24, so she'll end up with a bed sized quilt.
I love being in bees and swaps, but it is always a relief when I finish my blocks and send them off (it's also exciting to finish some ahead of time!).
I am hoping for better weather next weekend, so I can take photos of some of my bigger finishes in the daylight. It's still dark when I get home from work--I am ready for spring time! (but dreading the rainy hurricane season...there is no pleasing me, ha!)
Thanks for stopping by :)
