Fresh Sewing Day

As usual, it's hard to believe another month has passed already. But here in Seattle, we've had just a few hints of spring, and that alone is reason to celebrate moving forward. Meanwhile, March was a busy enough month with my usual assortment of bee blocks and other "littles". My fav? A scary-looking but totally not-as-hard-as-it-looks Octagonal Orb (middle row, right-hand pic). It 's for the Always Bee Learning bee, and it's going to be one amazing quilt!

A last-minute finish was the Doodle Memory Game. I confess, though I totally consider myself a quilter, I do love these littles.

And then, the quilts. First up was the Scrappy Trip that you've seen all over blog-land  Considering I really wanted to make a few scrappy quilts this year, this one was a perfect start. I still smile every time I look at it. 

And then was my first quilt as a quilter for FAITH Circle. To say I'm pleased with this finish is such an understatement. It was a real treat combining my bee-member's blocks into a design that's been calling to me for ages. I'm pretty sure I'll be making another one of these.
