virtual quilting bees

I'm a part of two quilting bees right now and the past two months have brought me lots of happy mail as I collect the blocks that come in each day.

My month for Common Threads was in November and I'm planning on sashing these blocks with a gray solid. My request for the month was no nested blocks or log cabins, just squares and rectangles.

And, my month for Bee Beautiful was January (can't believe February is already tomorrow!). My theme for these blocks was scrappy log cabins with pink centers. It's been fun to see scraps from memorable projects turned into little mini log cabin blocks!

In other news, I have finally gotten around to finishing up my nine patch a day quilt that I started last May. It feels good to almost check something off of my to do list. My kitties like quilts, especially new ones, so Nuku Nuku plopped on and got very comfortable this afternoon. I hope to finish getting the binding sewed to the back in the next couple of days and this one will be complete!

  1. My month for my other bee was December and getting the blocks in the mail is so fun! You'll get my blocks shortly... I finally got round to getting a pen to sign the blocks. Sorry I took so long :/
