Beautiful Sunny Day here, so I decided to make a Spring Wreath for my front door. This was very easy to do and only took a couple hours from start to finish. I used 5 rolls of 6" tulle and cut them into 14" pieces-2 per knot, alternating my color scheme [ I even have a bit left over]. I enjoyed making this so much I'm now on the look out for some Red, White, and Blue tulle to make a Memorial Day/ 4th of July Wreath!
I finally had some off time recently and managed to work on the pile of bee blocks I had laying around. The first quilt I put together was my Patriotic Asterisk Quilt. These blocks are from July 2011. I ended up with 10 blocks and not enough fabric to make any more, so the extra will be added to the back of the quilt. I bordered all the blocks with Kona white, the red star fabric, and a blue geometric fabric. I really like how it turned out.
The second quilt top I put together is my daughter's Wonky Star Quilt. These blocks came from two different bees and I still have a small pile left, which I may use on the back of the quilt. I still need to pick out a border fabric...my daughter's thinking aqua's/blues. I'm thinking maybe some green, so we'll have to wait and see.
Next up is my 3 x 6 bee block quilt[ pictures to follow once it's sewn together]. I have 20 blocks in gray, green, and white. I started to sew the blocks together but ran out of time, so hopefully on my next day off I'll be able to finish putting that quilt top together. It sure is nice to see these blocks coming together. Once the pile is turned into tops I'll need to focus on the quilting:)
Hard to believe June is already here. I've kept busy with bee blocks and work. I also made up some burp cloths and crocheted a baby afghan for a coworkers baby shower. She's expecting a baby girl in the next couple weeks.
Yes, I'm still alive, though it's been a long time since I posted anything on blogger. I'm still quilting, but have just been too busy with life and work to keep up here. I hope to do better in the future.
I made 1 of my blocks, so everyone could see it. Please mix up the fabrics like I have...you will have duplicates and if you wish you may alternate with fabrics you have, just keep with the color scheme of the fabric you receive. Here are the photo's of the block I made.
The tutorial says the block is 8 1/2" finished. My block came out closer to 9". So, everyone can just leave their block and I will trim them up when they come home.
