ScrapBeeLicious

Here’s an update on ScrapBeeLicious.  I have already had so much fun with these ladies, and I feel so blessed to have my blocks.  (Yes, I know I need to finish that quilt.  I’ve decided to make it a HUGE quilt, so I have 6 more blocks to make.  I don’t know what’s holding me up … yes, I do.  ADD)  I’ve found that with bees I am a huge procrastinator.  I put a lot of pressure on myself to please the recipient because I respect and like all of them so much.  I want them to love what I make.  This past month Cath over at Wombat Quilts had up paper piece two low-volume blocks.  Paper piecing was the easy part – low volume was a new concept.  I don’t speak low volume.  I changed my mind about twenty times, but in the end I loved the blocks I made.  I can’t wait to see the finished quilt – it’s going to be stunning.

Of course I had to cut into some Chicopee for such a special friend.  I truly can’t wait to see all of these finished quilts.  And, I promise that I’m starting the next blocks this weekend, Alyce!  With my quilt guild I just started a new bee, and our first block has a Y-seam.  About that… first time for everything, right?!

Happy quilting this weekend, friends.  I have an unobtainable wish list to accomplish this weekend – here’s to hoping I get it done!

  1. Those are lovely blocks!! Plan A for the weekend was a trip to see my brother and hit up IKEA (first weekend away from the kids!), but it has been postponed due to weather. Plan B is paint the new wall and kitchen. So today is cleaning day…and quilting whenever possible.

  2. Love your blocks! Good luck with your y-seam challenge :). That’s the best part of bees and swaps for me is trying new things

  3. I love, love that second block! It is so you, and looks like quilty sunshine. Sew sew sew!

    Which y-seam block is it? I have promised myself I will learn y-seams, partial seams, and master curved seams next year…
