It's so nice to be back for WIP Wednesday! It's taking me soooo long to get back into a quilting and blogging routine. You know my primary source of motivation is a looming deadline. With none on the horizon, I'll need to set some goals for myself. Wish me luck!
The 4X5 bee blocks are turning into a nice little collection! Hive 13 was awesome! I decided to sit out the next round, but am making myself available if someone drops out. Click the mosaic to go to flickr and see who made which blocks.
These are the blocks I sent out for this round. I'm calling it a circle of geese variation. Three-quarters of the block is paper pieced from the pattern by Piece by Number. The small block in the corner is 1/2 the size of the original.
I pulled these fabrics from a Kate Spain charm pack and some yardage. They worked perfectly with Amber's happy colors.
I made a bonus string x for myself yesterday. I will be making lots and lots of these when Bonnie Hunter visits our guild in April! Wee!
I am also participating in the Mini Scrap Basket Swap. These are the blocks I received in the mail this week. It is amazing to me that such a variety of fabric looks so great together! We are doing one more round of these string blocks. I'm trying to decide how many I want to make/receive.
I can't bring myself to count up my UFOs today. I will need to find some time to update my project pages.
As always, head over to freshly pieced to see what everyone else is working on.
