Play day with Fabric

I got to spend most of today in my sewing room, and I feel great as I got quite a bit done.   I finished my swap blocks... for We Bee Learning and for my Wonky Bee...

Here's Nita's We Bee Learning block.. It's called Converging Corners and it was fun to make. You'll definitely want to check out the example quilt...Inspiration in the making over at Film in the Fridge. Click Here for Link to Tutorial... I see one of these quilts in my near future...  This was fun to make, because there wasn't any REAL measuring to be and liberating.. *Giggle*

And The Wonky Blocks this month is for Lisa C, she had us make two blocks for her, they were quite easy to do and fun to make... a couple Wonky Stars...
I was proud of the fact that my points were all good until I realized I had to trim the block down to 2.5 inchs on the bottom of the star on the right... But it still looks great. Will be a fun Christmas quilt when she gets it all together!

 Then I got to working on my Month for the WONKY Bee... I decided on a block I found over at Oh Frannson,but I added a little twist to mine...I am sending everyone enough to make two blocks, but it's up to them if they want to make two or just one.  I understand with the holidays how it may be a bit busy.   AND I'm cheating so all the ladies that visit online can see what's coming.. I know I know... But I can't help it.  I was proud of myself for getting everything cut today...

And Last But by NO Means Least.. I have to share what I received in the mail yesterday from one of my online swaps.  My partner Karen aka the Quilting_Fairy on Flickr made me feel so extra special.  I was super excited to recieve this wonderful mini quilt.   The Quilting is amazing and it's going to look fabulous on my sewing room wall!  I am making a special spot for it!

I shall leave you with that amazing quilt to enjoy till next time.  
Hugs and have a great week!
