A finished Quilt!

                     Signatures are on the 3 squares that surround the center white square.

You Ladies are Awesome!!!!!  Love, Love, LOVE it!  My quilt will be living in my family room, to be snuggled under and gazed at over and over again.   Thanks so much :)

Stephanie's Blocks... Finally!

I've been so all over the place (mentally and literally!) that I completely forgot about Stephanie's blocks till last week. I'm REALLY sorry Stephanie!!!

I finished them last night! Yaaay! I kind of wanna keep them...

The first block was a breeze, and I'm glad I started with it.

The second block took a bit of math to figure out but it was definitely fun to work on. And I promise you that it's square... I don't know why it photographed all wonky like that!

And since the sig block had little bubble prints, I decided to sign within the bubbles lol I hope you don't mind that, Steph!

Anyway they'll be in the post today! Phew!

These are my last blocks for Bee Beautiful. Some of them have been finished for months and just sitting on the end of my ironing board, I started hoarding them like the rest of my fabrics! oops.

This was a great bee! You are all lovely ladies with endless creativity,

inspiring lives and projects.

Thank you for including me, I couldn't be happier with all of the great techniques I've learned and friends that I have made....
Keep your eyes peeled for my quilt as you go quilt that you all graciously contributed to... My plans for a queen sized quilt have faded (along with my QAYG stamina) and I hope to have a generous lap quilt for my couch in the next couple of months. How the heck did you do it Penny? You are a QAYG rockstar!

Vicki, Michelle, Amy and Stephanie- I hope you like your blocks! They were all fun to put together, gorgeous fabrics all around. I will be sending them out tomorrow morning, Monday at the latest. Thank you for your patience...

Thanks again everyone!

Half of the way there...

I've received about half of my blocks so far, and I'm just so thrilled with all of these awesome squares!!! This is going to be one happy quilt, and I can't believe it will be mine! Thanks everyone :)

My Bee Blocks

 I am so happy with my Bee Blocks! Here's what I've got so far.
 I will be sashing them with a lot more white, but here you can at least get a general idea of what's going on.

You all rock.

Holidays - a time to catch up

The holidays.
...a time for catching up.
With friends, with family...
With quilting bees?????
 You betcha.
 What better way to say you care?
 After all, the bobbins have been wound, the machine has been oiled...
 You're working on finishing all of your hand made gifts, right?
 So - thank you, all of you in beebeautiful
for a wonderful year of new techniques, new fabrics and new friends.

Happiest Holidays
Happiest Days.
