Bee Blocks!

Phew I knew July was going to be a busy month between finishing my festival of quilts submission and deadlines at work but it ran on until august.. then September. I finally found and opened all the bee post I received for two  Flickr bees i was “Queen” in July today.

First up…. I chose 30s repros as my theme for the I Love Lucy Bee- aren’t they lovely?

The other bee… is Fat Stash Bee and I chose loosely cat themed, granny squares and cat blocks… isn’t everyone creative! The aim is to turn this into a quilt for a friend….P1110095 P1110096 P1110097

Can you tell my favourites?? Seriously love Nikki’s Foundation Pieced Cat and the applique ones 🙂

I’m really not loving Flickr at the moment.. since the app update I can’t access group discussions or Flickr mail! Considering I spend my working week on the computer (with two screens) I really can’t face going on it at home nor can my poor phone cope with the internet version…

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.

Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Cross… up to date!

Right earlier in the year I mentioned this epp bee I was a part of… sewing honeycombs for Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses block.. I don’t think I’ve shown much of what I’ve done so here goes and in no particular order… as I just finished September today so woohoo all caught up 🙂

And oh look I found my post from being Queen Bee in July for two bees 🙂 Fun time to open tomorrow and share!

If you would like to see more Lucy blocks pop on over to Jan’s blog as I am constantly in awe of her fussycutting skills.

July Bees!

This month I’m Queen in two online quilting bees which basically means that I choose a theme/design and each individual in the bee does their own interpretation of it and sends it to me 🙂

First up the I Love Lucy Bee.. it wasn’t hard to pick my theme this month combining epp with 30s repros is a given right?

Then there’s the UK Fat Stash Bee where you send each bee member a FQ worth of fabric and they mix n match from their own stash. Here is what I sent…. altho the kitties do change colour as does the polka and the other smaller pieces.

Here’s what I’ve chosen… either a granny square with kitty in the middle or a patchwork cat block. My cat mad friend birthday is in a few months so thought this might be apt 🙂

Can’t wait to see what I get back! Now on to some projects…
