February Block Notes

Girls! Thanks so much for all of your emails. I'm sooooo excited to receive your blocks, and see what great things you are creating. Please post and share pictures of your works in progress!

A few notes:
- progress, not perfection...we are all learning, and remember that all of your blocks will be lovingly received by me! I'm not a precision sewer or quilter, and very excited by how the collective creativity will influence the final design :)

- please remember to send me one or two 4" swatches of fabric samples in your colour.

Thank you so much for your inspiration...what a fun year this will be!!

Here's a snapshot of my blue block.


  1. Thanks for the encouragement Katy! I am working on a black and white block for you right now. Somebody in the book, Modern Quilting Bee: Block Party, said that one thing she liked about being in a bee was that she worked harder for someone else...I definitely am finding that to be true...and that is a good thing, I think my work needs to be cleaned up a bit and this is helping me to do it. I will make a post later this weekend to show some other things I am working on.

    Thinking of my quilting bee buddies...

    PS: I have already cut some 4 inch squares to send along too. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. I am pulling colors today. Thanks for the reminder about the 4 inch squares! I am definitely enjoying this group!
