Bee Blocks

After being away I have been catching up on blogging, bee blocks and blogging about bee blocks.
Jan/Feb was Amy's  turn in Bee Quilted and she requested these wonky Quilt As You Go blocks.  These were super quick and easy to make.

February was Justine's month in Fresh Modern Bee 2 and she chose Modified Bento Box Blocks based on the tutorial from Film in the Fridge.

The fabric was Amy Butler Love and some co-ordinating solids which really helped to frame the fabrics.  They are cut into quarters and then Justine will mix them all around.

Sunday Stash - the Vancouver edition

My husband thought he was safe from quilt shops on this holiday - we were going skiing.  There would be mountains and snow and fresh air.  There would be no quilt shops and no sewing machine.  The only sewing I would be doing was hand sewing hexagons in the evening (whilst watching the snow with a glass of wine).

But he forgot about the 3 days we were spending in Vancouver which I certainly had not forgotten.  In fact I had done my research well.  One short bus trip would take us to Spool of Thread.  I actually thought I was very restrained . . . .

Now I think I mentionned once or twice  before how much I love Momo Wonderland.  I may have also mentionned that I was done collecting it as I now have a little bit of each of the fabrics in the collection.  Well the new rule is that doesn't apply if I happen to walk into a shop and find 2 yards left of the pink scissors fabric.

And I bought this Central Park fabric just because I liked it!
