In January, I joined a quilting bee called The Bee Hive Quilts. You can find out more about it from Gnome Angel here.
But just for a quick overview….. There are 12 ladies to a group and every month someone gets to be the queen, it alternates so that all 12 members gets a turn. Each month every member of the group will mail a block of the queen’s choice to her and she will also make one for herself so that she ends up with 12 quilt blocks ready to be turned into a quilt.
It’s alot of fun and I have been more than enjoying it lately.
Our queen for the month of February chose a super awesome block and she had no preference for colors only that it did not use any white. I chose these fabrics.
Most of them were leftover Winged fabrics. Yes, I have been using them like a little Winged junkie, but I have alot of it, it’s lying around and it needs to be used. So voila!
I’m a little bummed I had to ship it off. I REALLY liked the block. It’s a Quiet Play pattern. and paper pieced.
I also sent some lovely little gifts.
Hopefully, the queen will approve.
I have been working on a very simple quilt design that has now been finished and is in the wash. I wanted it to be a plus quilt. I wanted to only use solids and only use two colors. Enter the Super Mod Plus Quilt.
I seriously had these blocks made in about half an hour. I have written a pattern for this quilt too and as soon as I get it photographed I will release it. You can find all my quilt patterns here.
I quilted it in pink thread something I never do. I should have it posted by tomorrow.
