Playing Catch-Up

So I guess it’s not surprising my bee block for March was late too…after the whole Doll Quilt swap debacle.  I really have done zero sewing over the past few months…up until recently that is.

For March, Kristy asked for wonky stars.  I have such a tough time with all things wonky, but I gave it my best shot.  I used Just Wing It by Momo and I think I like it. 

Sarah’s bee block for the Scrap Bee for April.  Sarah asked for string blocks….pretty easy, except I made the wrong size.  Thankfully bigger so I trimmed it down and off it went. I dug into my scrap basket for this one (some Momo, Amy Butler, and Tula Pink among others).

I’ve really enjoyed the bee so far.  I’ve made 4 blocks that I’ve never made before….I definitely like making string blocks and am going to add a string quilt to my to do list.

May is my month in the bee!  I’m pretty sure I’m going to ask for spiderweb blocks.  Can’t wait!

DQS Complete

Round 10 of the Doll Quilt Swap on flickr is winding down.  Here is the quilt I sent to my partner.  It was sent a week late, but she should receive it any day now if she hasn’t already.  I was able to finish it thanks to the latest Philly Modern Quilt Guild sewing day.  It was just the motivation I needed to get it together.

Quilt made using Central Park by Kate Spain for Moda. 

Pieced quilt back.

Close up of the quilt detail.

I received a beautiful quilt from Leah.  She made me a string quilt in my favorite color!

Isn’t it gorgeous?!? 


Leah added cute pink buttons.


And she sent me a really fantastic package.  Everything was wrapped so beautifully!  Thanks Leah!
