So here we are, still
Anyway, despite the heat I have managed a little sewing, and it's all small stuff - see what I did there?
First up, I did the July/August blocks for Judith's Bee Blessed. These were so quick to make and are meant to be for a man quilt - I am not sure my colour choices are right, so Judith, just say and I'll do another couple, I enjoyed making them.
Next is another trivet from Ayumi's book - this is to go with the tea pouch that I made recently and are both destined for a traditional loving quilter friend. I really enjoyed making this again and this time I took the trouble to bind it rather than "bag" it.
I have another couple of projects almost ready to share, both small but they are not quite finished yet.
Meanwhile, I am Queen Bee for July in the Bee a Brit Stingy Bee - I asked for the Woven Ribbons block to finish at 8" and in beachy colours that might sit well with my Mod Pop quilt. This is my first Bee and first time as Queen and it's pretty exciting receiving blocks that others have gone to the trouble of making for you. So far I have had Karen's and they have some of her great fabrics in them.
and these next ones are from Emily.
and here they are, playing nicely together.
I plan to make my blocks into a large runner that will cover a double width chest of drawers. Keep 'em coming girls!!
My last photo shows a little something that arrived in the post last week..........
I know lots of you are getting a bit excited about another certain quilt venue, BUT...........anyone bound for Birmingham??
