Maria's bee block

Maria asked us to play with (and part with!) some of our all-time favorite fabrics in our favorite color for her block.  Well, for me that's a no-contest game. 
Enter, "Pond Scum." 
(And any other deliciously yucky version of this color!!)
I chose some fabrics that have made an appearance in a few of my quilts and ones that were on the "brighter" side, to show up well with the background fabric Maria sent us.  By the way, I really like this Essex linen.  It's a nice weight and was no problem to sew the curves.  And I'm a sucker for cross-color fabrics!
It's on it's way to you Maria! Enjoy

............I'm adding a little more quilting to my DWR for our guild challenge!  Have you finished yours yet?


  1. Got it! Thank you, Kim, I love your fabric choices. It is one of my current favorites. Frankly, I love them all. I haven't met a color I didn't like (perhaps one or two...) I am starting to amass an interest amount of blocks. Oh, the quilt potential here! By the way, awesome sewing skills! Thanks again, Maria

  2. Love, love, love these fabrics!

  3. Really nice,,, but more like butter and sun than scum!
