Now that school is in full swing, I'm finally getting caught up with my Bee Blocks. I finished Nedra's block several weeks ago, but drove around in the car with it without dropping by the post office to mail it. I finally got it sent on Wednesday. Sorry Nedra for being so flaky! Can I blame on birthday parties, kids, and the PTA?
I absolutely loved making the Spin Cycle block! I even bought the pattern I liked making it so much.
I did sign it, but forgot to take the post signature photo.
Last night I also finished making Amy's block. I wanted to make a courthouse steps block and like Nedra vary the width of the surrounding strips. I just had to fussy cut the center owl, since I love owls. In the end I didn't use the coral linen for the row of steps, so I'm not sure it technically is a courthouse steps any more... but I'm still happy with how it turned out anyway.
The Echino fabric sewed up so beautifully. And though it was a challenge for me to work with so much color, I loved every minute of it.
Thanks Nedra and Amy for the wonderful projects!
