OH MY GOSH... TIME has flown by and I almost missed the Yester Year challenge... Well...I have nothing to report this month on any of my old projects...BUT.. I did get two blocks made tonight... I am back on track for quilting and look forward to getting some more done this month. So There's a Linky at the bottom of this post for you to link up if you'd like... Please forgive me..I'll be back on track for AUGUST....I promise...
A new month has arrived so that means new Bee blocks to make :) I belong to TWO Virtual Quilting Bees... A virtual bee is like an old time Sewing Bee, but the participants are online and all over the world, we send each other blocks...sometimes the fabric is sent to you and you make the block for them...and sometimes you make a block for someone out of your scraps.
My Wee Bee Learning Bee is a Scrappy Bee and I am was so excited to get to participate with this group of gals...So excited in fact that when there was an opening in the second group I jumped at the chance to help catch up and participate. With this group you use fabrics from your stash and make the block that the monthly host gives you directions for. A fun way to use up your fabric scraps...or a great reason to go buy some new fabrics to add to your stash..*giggle*
Here are my blocks...Group 1 is for Phuong and she wants Red & Aqua fabrics to make a quilt for her niece.... The pattern she picked is called Lightning Zig Zag and I am in love with it..SO Easy and Fun to make!!!! I have already made two place mats using it..but I will share those on July 14th...the day I am featured in the RW&B Blog Hop since I made them with Red, White & Blue fabric for the Independence Day. :) Here's Phuong's Block...
For Group 2... Trina has requested a Purple, Black and White block...Her pattern is called Fireflies...and it is a Lovely Block... Very easy to put together so if you're looking for a easy block to do and want to practice your triangles...This is a great block for that!
My Fabric pack for the Wonky Bee has arrived and this month we are making a Wonky Log Cabin! So I'll be working on that block over the next few days...The fabric is lovely and should be fun to put together...I may just have to add one of my own to the grouping.. *wink*
Hope you are all working on great projects...Please Please report on your Yester Year progress.. I love to see what you have all been working on!!!
