I'm in two virtual quilting bees: SewConnected and 8two8. Both are on flickr. I like virtual quilting bees, and I don't like them. I like the challenge and comraderie of the groups, but I get a little wary of making blocks every month. Don't I sound lazy? I think that is why one or two bees is plenty for me.
August is Amy's month for SewConnected. She's making something similar to this and asked for blocks of various sizes. So with my scraps and with the fabric she sent along, I made these for her.
The smallest blocks are two inches including seam allowances. They were so fun to make!
August is LauraJay's month for 8two8. She requested I Spy houses and figured out a pattern for us to use. And you know I love doing I Spy! Here is that I made for her.
September is my month for 8two8. I am requesting blocks with free pieced words. One of each person's four words is her name. The other three words are chosen from a list of words I posted to the group. I also requested solid or solidish backgrounds and prints for the letters. Here is my first block.
What are you working on?
ps - thank you all for the nice comments you leave. they always give me a smile.
