I do not seem to manage more than one post a month at the moment...I also do not seem to manage to finish any quilts either!!! oh dear,
I have finished my bee blocks though and here they are:
Stash Bee - Hive 2: Stephanie asked for this block (inspired by Fresh Lemon Quilts) and she did not want it all sewn together (hence the middle bits looking a bit strange!).
We Bee Modern Too: Nicole asked for the Stargazing block and send the Christmasy fabric which is lovely and bright and made for a very sweet block.
Fat Stash Bee: Jodi wanted a modern and masculine looking block for her son Eli who chose the leaves on black fabric...to be honest in the beginning i was a bit lost because i was not into the fabric but then I spotted the Echino helicopters in my stash and it all went from there. I hope Eli will love the quilt his mummy will make for him.
Bee Europa 2012-2013: Floh asked for a wordy block about tea to accompany a gorgeous set of teapots and other tea related paraphernalia that another Bee had created for her. I came up with a number of ideas, tried 3, cried over 1 which was pieced with tiny pieces but got the mirror image wrong and ended up with this block. For those of you who like Mr Whirlygiggles don't get it, it is meant to be the word tea on top pf a ladder implying "High Tea" an experience i would recommend to Floh when she is next in the UK!
Modern Minx Beginner Bee: Twinkle Toes asked for the "Little Square, Big Square" block. I loved making this and I have used some special shot cottons. Close up it is gorgeous (to me!). Hope you like it!
All in all a good month for my Bees with a couple of challenges but nothing less than i would expect!
Roll on September!
