This summer has been insane. We moved, bought a new house, lived with my mom, and helped take care of my grandmother. Somehow in the midst of all the excitement, I didn’t get much crafting done. Now, I am feel those creative juices slowly flood back in. I have lots of Christmas ideas, and I think some that I didn’t share from last year (is that really possible?).
Well, the very first order of business was to get caught up on the virtual quilting bee I am signed up for. These ladies are awesome! They have the coolest fabrics to work with and the neatest ideas.
As I said, I was really far behind, but I am all caught up now (well, I have one for September to get out, which will happen early next week). But, here are the five blocks I created for my swap partners.
I am really happy with the way they all came out. But, I am a little in love with all the circles. I made that one for Edie. She sent some amazing fabrics and asked for circles.
And, even more exciting, September was my month. So, I picked some of my favorite Heather Bailey fabrics and the string quilt pattern that Film in the Fridge had posted, and I got to see a sneak peak of one of the first blocks to come back. I didn’t send enough fabric apparently, but can you see how cool this is going to be?
I am so excited to see this all put together and in our new family room. It is going to look amazing with pillows in this pattern, don’t you think?
