Hi! Today I want to share with you my latest adventure – I have joined a Quilting Bee!! I am so excited to be in a Bee Hive with 11 other bees and can’t wait to see what the year ahead brings.
The Queen Bee for the first month requested a Granny Squares Block with a white background so I searched through the scraps (only need 2.5″ squares) and came up with this
Now all I had to do was sew it together!!
Why is it, that when you commit to do something for someone else, performance anxiety appears and everything that can go wrong, does?? Does this ever happen to you? Well at this point I’m thinking “Wow if this happens with sewing squares together, how will I be on a complicated block”!!
Time to give this girl a serious talking to!! So listen up Nanny ….. quit the nonsense and sew the bee block up!!
And she did!!
Now I thought , if I make myself one of each of the chosen blocks, by the end of the year I will have a sampler quilt – how cool would that be!!
To do that I will convert all of the blocks to a standard 12″ block – this one is only about 9″ – that way all of my blocks will be 12″ finished and so quick to join with sashing!
I’ll have to decide on a colour scheme and then audition some fabrics – I’ll share the block when I decide!!
I will be a busy bee!!!! Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Until next time
