i’ve up and joined my third quilting bee. i haven’t figured out the badge yet, but it’s over here. we even have someone joining us from new zealand. quite exciting.
i had enough fabric in my stash to get us started for october & i sent out a variety of different brightly colored fabrics to everyone else in order to make a quilt for the baby. the other 2 bees were for the three big kids, so i thought she should get one, too.
so far, i have 14 blocks (mine included) the rest are on their way. i’m really impressed and inspired with all of the creativity i’ve seen in these blocks.

i really freaked beth out with this one. she embroidered jamison’s first name, but saw that i blurred it and called her jamison. she thought she screwed up when i should have originally told them all that i didn’t use first names.
if you remember, jamison’s hebrew name is malcha, which means queen. megan made this crown for our queen. i really am quite touched with the sentiment in this one.
and holy-smokes! this looks like it’s own little mini quilt! fabulous! thanks, jessica!
and here’s one of mine. the multi-talented, incomparable cathy sent me the adorable bear piece when i won a tote in a giveaway she had last year, so i used it as the anchor & built around it. i don’t use a pattern, unless someone asks me to, so it’s just all smacked together. i really like how it turned out. the other one i made is just as cute, i just didn’t have it finished before i uploaded pictures.
this is going to be one fabulous quilt, don’t you think?
