I joined two online quilting bees for 2010, and I finished my first two blocks for one of them, Nittany Block Party, tonight. No fabric was sent out this month and there were no colors specified, but we were provided with picture examples of several blocks and the instructions to have the center piece of fabric feature people. I really enjoyed making these blocks and using up fabric strips and pieces left over from the wonky log cabin quilt, the half hexagon quilt, and the value quilt (still in progress -- I know, I know). To see more of the blocks for this month, check out the Nittany Block Party blog or flickr group:
My month for the this quilting bee is August and my month for the other quilting bee (more later) is June. It's fun playing around with ideas for what I want and planning fabric and color choices. I'll also be starting Dollies Online with Sarah and Amy within a few more days! It's not to late to join me!
With wishes, true and kind -- Joan
