I am participating in 2 online quilting bees. For my turn I asked for hearts on pink and and red fabric from both groups! This has been great fun. I have made many blocks to send out and now it is so much fun to check the mail. I have been getting them in just about every day for a couple of weeks now!
I think these are some of the most talented ladies and I am so excited to be a member of these wonderful groups.
Check out this photo of the hearts I have gotten so far. I am still waiting for hearts from about 8 bees..........
I am trying to organize my fabrics. I pulled out a bin of scraps (I have 5 more bins ) and I started cutting. I used my Accuquilt Go cutter and cut out about 150 tumbling blocks, then some 2 1/2 squares and some small half square bits, then I got out my rotary cutter and cut out some 6 inch, 5 inch, 4 inch and 2 inch blocks.
I took the scraps from all this cutting and used every piece that was at least 1 inch square and 'made' a piece of fabric that is about 26"x20". I don't know how I will use my 'made' fabric but I plan to add to it once I tackle another bin of scraps.
I am also trying to get my fabric stash in order! I read about using comic book backer boards so I got some. My shelf went from this...........
I had only ordered one box of the backer boards so I ran out. I ordered two more boxes and will attempt to get it all in order when I get them!
I took all of my fat quarters and folded them and have them in a couple of clear plastic bins. I will show a pic of that next time I post about getting organized!
I am participating in two online quilting bees. I wanted lots of blocks for my quilt so when it was my turn in each of the bees, I asked for the same kind of block. This is what I have received so far. They are beautiful. I can't wait to get the rest of them. These ladies are so talented.
