Anita/RhubarbPatch of FAITH Circle had us each do eight simple 6 1/2" blocks, but what a sweet quilt they made! I think the loopy quilting Anita did just made it!
Next is "Birds of a Feather" by Susan/PatchworknPlay from the Mid-Century Modern Bee. When I saw our assignment that month - to make an Anna Maria Horner feather block I was scared silly! But it turned out to be quite fun - and just look at the finished quilt! Each block is so unique and pretty, and yet again, Susan's layout and quilting just pulled them all together in the lovliest way!
Again, when I saw the month's assignment for That Stash Bee from Valerie/Between Quilts, I didn't know what I was going to do! A scrappy rainbow was the general theme, with the specifics being either scrappy stars or words of encouragement, as the family this quilt was going to had been through a very difficult time. I opted for stars, but admit to being just so impressed at the creativity of my bee mates. I'm pretty sure I gasped when I saw this completed quilt for the first time! Do click through and take a quick look - both at the front and the back - such a unique and lovely quilt. (If I hear back with an affirmative from Valerie, I'll add the photos here - meanwhile see them on flickr!)
And lastly, "Common Affection," a quilt I made back in April with the help of the Mid-Century Modern Bee is in the limelight - at least at my house! It will be displayed in the 2013 American Quilter's Society QuiltWeek in Des Moines, Iowa this October. Over 100 quilts will be shown, and then a selection of them will be chosen by the judges to travel with this exhibit through September 5, 2014. Either way, I'm pleased, and grateful to my bee girls for helping me step out into new territory with this quilt.
That's it for now . . . hope you enjoyed the show!
