I felt like I should make my OWN blocks along with everyone else, so I finished them up this weekend and took pictures this morning. I was inspired by Tacey and Heather to do some raw edge applique. I got a little tree crazy this weekend and decided that I want to also try a Tree of Life block, a Tree of Temptation block, and a wonky Log Cabin with a little pine tree in the middle block. So far, I've only actually made these two:
I don't really have a plan for the overall quilt, so I suppose once I start arranging all the blocks, I'll decide if I actually need to make any more.
I've said it a couple of times in the comments, but I'm so impressed and excited about the awesome blocks that I'm going to have in my quilt. Everyone's blocks have been so creative and beautiful and unique. The whole bee thing is turning out even better than I could have imagined. Thanks so much for pouring so much energy and creativity into it.
I received some beautiful fabric along with my blocks from Hilary. I'm assuming that's for our February block. (Right, Hilary?) I can't wait to see what she comes up with.
One of my other bees is keeping track of which blocks have been received, etc. I suppose I should do the same.
I've already received blocks from Bonnie, Tacey, Debbie, and Hilary. Update: Just got the mail, so I now also have blocks from Carrie and Liz. Today, I received Barb's blocks. I've never gotten this much great mail all at once. Almost every day I come home to a package. It's so cool. I now also have blocks from Claire, Heather, and Bibi, so that's everyone except one. I just contacted her to make sure she's still in. I'm making a few more blocks myself, but I hope to post pictures of my block layout soon. Thanks again everyone. This has been awesome.
Carrie, Barb, Claire, Heather, and Liz, and now Bibi have all blogged about their blocks, so I know they're done.
I'm not in a huge hurry. I always have plenty of other projects to work on. I'm such a fickle crafter. So if you haven't made or sent your blocks, don't worry.
I'll update this post as I receive more blocks.
Thanks again, everyone!
