At the buzzer....

I've pieced Ebony blocks for February at the buzzer so to speak.   Maybe I should be easier on myself as I technically finished them 36 hours before the end of the month.   Of course, these blocks won't hit the post until Monday which means they are 1 day late from that perspective.   Like most things---it's all in your perspective.

Here's the wonky log cabin blocks for Ebony.   I enjoyed pulling a few fabrics from my stash to add to hers.

March fabric mailing and blogger edits

Hi Ladies! The Olympics got the best of me this week so the farbic for March will be mailed either Saturday or Monday. I am now addicted to curling and sleep deprived because I found I like the events they have on late night better than the prime time events!
The envelopes are addressed, the fabric is washed and pressed but not all is cut... I am close to having it all ready. My cat was trying to "help" my last night by darting in and out of the fabric hanging over the ironing board to the ground and attacking the loose threads. She's lucky she's so cute!
Also, I made a quick edit to this blogger page. The bee logo on the right side of the page now links to the Flickr pool. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to add the Flickr badge like I have on my own blog. *sigh

More blocks for Ebony!

I finally finished my blocks for Ebony this morning. I added a couple fabrics from my stash. I wanted to add more green but all my greens were more lime-y :-(
I am working on cutting fabric and getting the March packets ready to mail this week. My goal is Friday but we'll see. School may intervene with my plans so it may be more like next weekend.

Thank You!

I just wanted to thank everyone for all the fabulous blocks that are arriving! They're all great and have a little something different from your stashes. I think it's going to be a wonderful quilt.

I've been trying to comment on blogger, but something isn't working correctly so I chose a post instead. Once all the blocks have arrived I will post a picture of the top as quickly as possible.

February Blocks for Ebony

I was so excited to get these blocks finished.  They were lots of fun to work on and my first “wonky” log cabin blocks.  I can hardly wait to see this quilt finished.  I’m snowed in today but will hopefully get these mailed tomorrow.

Teaser for March

Somehow these two images belong together...

Intrigued? Wondering what you will be making? Obviously, this is the fabric I picked.
Are you also wondering if I am in this photo? I am, can you find me?

Blocks for Ebony

I love making log cabin blocks and the colors here are fabulous!
I am anxious to see it all together.

Fun with Log Cabins

I had some sewing time this weekend, (even though we did not get snow here in Connecticut), and I had fun making wonky log cabins for Ebony. The fabrics I received were great, I added more pinks and b/w to one log cabin with a more controlled placement, and made the other totally random. Great block choice, Ebony!

Ebony's blocks

Snowed in here in Maryland, so I spent this afternoon making Ebony's blocks. Hope you like them, Ebony. I added a few fabrics from my stash. Will mail them off as soon as mail service starts back up again.

Katie's Finished Top

Okay Ladies... Today I worked on the sashing for the quilt and put it all together. Took me a while but I finally found a sorting that I like.
There were two blocks that were about 1.5 inches smaller then the others, so I saved them to put on the back with the tag which will have all of your first names and our group on it as well. I hope that is okay!

And here is the final quilt top finished:

Great work ladies! And thank you!

Ebony's fabric is here

I just got home and found Ebony's fabric in the mail box. So, looks like I'll have something to do when the snow storm long as it closes the stores and I get off. Either way I have saturday morning off, so I'll get to play then.

Please don't call me crazy...

But right as the snow started to fall, my toddler fell asleep and the mail came, which made a perfect storm for...sewing! And since Ebony's fabric just arrived in the mail...I thought I would just do her blocks!

They were so fun! I love how they came out! I hope she will too!

Amazing Ladies!

You ladies are amazing. You all sent your blocks back in just enough time so that I have a wonderful project for this MAJOR snow storm that is coming. They are all so beautiful, so personal. I have loved getting the notes you sent with them.

I hit Joanns tonight (with all the other crazy crafting ladies--joanns and the grocery store!) to get some white for sashing. I think I am going to go with white because it will make the blocks pop! We will see...

Tomorrow (after a few other projects that are due first), I am going to lay them out on the floor and see what looks best! I will be sure to share.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! My daughter Eden is just going to LOVE it!

And more blocks for Mrs. Katie :)

I'm in the middle of a move, so things have been crazy and hectic. My sewing machine will be the LAST thing I pack though. :) Between Etsy orders, I was finally able to get some sewing time in and work on the blocks.

Hope you like your blocks, Katie! Sorry for the delay in shipping. They were mailed today. :)

Katie's Blocks

Hi Everyone,

I've sent off Katie's blocks, and since we live so close to one another they should arrive tomorrow or Wednesday. I had a lot of fun with these. I'm pretty sure that I have some of the butterfly fabric in my stash. I used her blocks as the background and added a few fun prints to the selections to make my blocks. Here they are:


I hope that they work well in the quilt.
