Getting Caught Up

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!

Pin It!
