Getting closer...

Thanks to a week of vacation, waiting out several car naps,
and purposeful use of bathtime, I am almost done with my green section! I am very pleased with the way this quilt is coming together, and I hope I can show a finished top at our next meeting.

I am loving seeing all the wonderful bee blocks here and I can't wait to see what everyone's been up to over the summer! See you in a month-

Maria's House Block


I'm afraid my upper margin isn't quite 2 inches, Maria... hope it works anyway.  Here's my house block.  Summer is still in my mind...so here's one from the beach!

Begonia for Naomi



Using the lovely image for inspiration, I looked for a block where the colors would unfold from the center. I found this block called Floor Tiles. I loved this idea and it was fun to choose the colors. Naomi, I hope you like it. 
Can't wait to see how this comes together.

Another Block for Naomi

I volunteered to do a second block for Naomi... Don't know why this looks blurry (jittery photographer?)... anyway, here it is and hope it works for you, Naomi.  Will send it off this coming week... Enjoy the rest of your summer.
Now to get started on Maria's block!

Art Quilt Project

Here are my two blocks for the Art Quilt Project led by Michelle and Bernadette ~



Inspired by the colors in the original piece, I tried to follow the color progression.


A simple modern block highlighting the four main colors.

Michelle and Bernadette, I hope it is what you were looking for.  
I will bring them to the October meeting!

June 2014 Fabric Cut Out Art Bee Block for E



Here's my June Bee Block for E.




As usual I've posted about making it on my blog made by ChrissieD :)



Lucky Bee - August Block for Naomi

Another flower for Naomi. I chose the Lupine and here is the block it inspired. Hope you like it, Naomi!


Mod Bee Round 4 - August Block for Kim W.

Kim W asked for a modern block, using only the three colors of fabric she sent. There was a bit of planning but, as usual, the final result is something different. Isn't it great how blocks/fabric have a mind of their own?



Kim also challenged us to play around with the extra fabric to make another, different block. Here is mine.

They are both on their way to you, Kim. have fun putting together your Tricolor Modern Sampler!
