Busy Bee…

by Kate on October 6, 2009

I find it so much easier to put together blocks when I love the fabric and I guess that is the challenge of quilting bees, some months I’m not all that inspired by the fabric.

Not the case this month! October has been a fantastic fabric month when it comes to the two quilting bees I am participating in.

Louise from the Around The Block bee sent a lovely mix of bright pinks, limes, oranges and reds. Reminiscent of a warm, lazy Summer’s afternoon enjoying a Pimms (can you tell I am REALLY looking forward to the warmer weather?)

Louise requested log cabin blocks, this first one I tried to use mainly pinks:

And the lime block:

Angela from the Bee Modern Bee sent out some gorgeous fabric, a much cooler colour palette, so soothing and I loved themix of prints with solids.

Angela requested two different blocks, a tree:

and the ever popular log cabin. I especially love the Eiffel Tower print – so sweet.

I hope you enjoy the blocks ladies and I look forward to seeing the finished quilt tops!
