WARNING! Overdose of Pictures! Proceed With Caution...

Oh MY Goodness! I didn't realize how many blocks I've made since my last post. Guess, you could say I've been busy......and here are the results..... These 2 blocks are for Jeanne -Coast to Coast Block Party
She asked for log cabins and I managed almost 2[ran a little short on fabric, so she'll add to it]
Dustin asked us to make her a Donkey block.
Isn't he adorable?!

This is Jess's radiating square-Rosey Little Bee

I made some progress on my 1st PhD
This ticker tape quilt just needed binding and viola is now complete.
I have begun putting my son's quitar quilt top together since it's 2nd on my list.
I hope to get that pieced by the end of Feb.

Next up is the block I made for Karen In Oregon. She was my partner for Jan. in the Block Swap Adventure. She requested a star and said she liked the wonky one I had my blog, so I made her one using her color scheme.

Here's Tracy's asterick block-Moody Blues Bee

These 2 blocks are for the "Comfort" Group of do.Good Stitches
a charity bee

This next group is for the Freedom Block Swap
There are 17 of us in this swap and we have till 3/15/11 to make everyone a 12 1/2" square block. Fabric has been arriving at my house...I'm like a kid in a candy store and my husband is having a hard time believing I haven't gone on a shopping binge. Everyone sends their fabrics and we get to choose which blocks to make for them.Below are the results so far.....
Wendy's Dr. Suess

Emily's- Snowball-ish block

Katie's Halloween String

Deb and Reuben's block

Becky's Block

LeeAnn's block and her siggy square

Jackie's Christmas block and her siggy square

This one is for Jennifer. She's making a quilt for her son and asked for a square in square in blue, green, and browns- Scrap-Bee

This next photo is of my sample block for the [3 x 6] Sampler Quilt Mini Bee-Beehive #18
I had a date with Ty[Pennington], those are his grey fabrics in the strip section. I really like how this came out and am now in the process of making my beehive partners their versions using their colors, though the same style of block.

And finally here is one I get to KEEP! This is the block Karen of Oregon made for me as part of the Block Swap Adventure[Jan]
I just LOVE it!! I asked for aqua, red, pink and white for this exchange. We got to list the type of block we'd like and since I wasn't sure of everyone's abiltities I sent a list of possiblities: pinwheel, string, snowball, square in square, and 9 patch
Karen really got it right with her choices and I look forward to seeing what else this exchange brings my way...definitely a quilt for me in the future:)

And so we come to the end of my overdose of photos. I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've been up to and I hope I don't wait as long to post next time.

Did you have a pattern for the donkey block? I know someone who is obsessed with Donkeys and would adore it made like a banner I think
