Catching Up on Bee Blocks

I made a dent in catching up on my bee blocks.

Elizabeth wanted blocks inspired by the drunk love quilt.

Jodi wanted snowflake blocks based on this bake shop recipe.

they have a tiny bit of applique on them, which I completely stressed about - Applique scares me.

This marks the last month of this bee.  I've enjoyed it, but I'm very happy to have one less thing on my plate.

Wendy sent some super 30s reproduction prints and told us to have fun.  I REALLY don't want to send these back!

pretty, no?

last but not least, I was part of the first round of My Favorite Little Quilt Swap.  This was a neat swap!  You build a mini and then send pictures to the moderator you posts them to the group.  After the deadline, everyone vote on which they like best, the moderator determines who gets what based on the favorites, you send yours away, THEN you find out who made what.  I can't wait to find out which one I'll receive!

My entry was Bitty Blue.

  1. Hi, Kristin --
    I tried printing the HP patterns (HP and RW), but when I print them they're not the right size and the lines are so blurry I can't tell where to sew anyway... Can you get them printed better? Obviously I don't know what I'm doing, but I'm only out of school until January 3 so time's running out for me to do such complicated blocks.
