Scrappy? Sew bee it!

Last month I found a new Quilting Bee on one of the (too) many blogs I'm reading and decided to join in. This was a first for me and for some of the members of our group. May is organizing it (her first) and we all have fun chatting on flickr.
We get each month a block design from the "queen bee" and use scraps from our fabric stash. The first two blocks are finished and send to their new home and I'm happy that I managed to complete them.


The first block was more challenging because of the million little seams but after some fun with the seam ripper it went together really nice. I love this pattern and I think this wasn't the last time for me.

The June block was a traditional log cabin, something I always anted to try in this size. I had a little difficulty finding different white fabrics, so that it wouldn't look to boring. The block is going to Sweden, so the yellow/blue/white combination is really fitting.


I can't wait until July, I'm sure we will do something fantastic again.

  2. I never thought of using different whites in my block so I guess it is boring *lol*
    It's all finished so I better send it on its way - just across the water:-)

  4. It's so much fun to see all the different variations of the same theme; it makes the quilt unique and kind of come to life :-)
