cottage quilting bee

besides the block party quilting bee, I also joined the cottage quilting bee. i have really enjoyed these bees...getting fabric in the mail, working on one or two blocks at a time, enjoying the great fabrics, and trying new things.

2 blocks for darci (who is hosting a fat quarter swap. fun, you should join in!). She wanted scrappy or wonky log cabins (my favorite).for those who have asked about a pattern for my boxed in quilt, there really isn't one. check out this wonky log cabin tutorial, which is basically what I did. I did a lot of finger pressing and NO measuring on that quilt. My finished (cut) squares measured 10.5 inches.

  12. Hello
    I just found your blog and I love it!

    Would you be able to tell me what the fabric is that has the large pink flowers? It makes the center square in the bottom block and I just adore it. Must have it.

    I have looked at all your finished quilts and what I really like is your use of white to set off the beautiful bright colors. Very inspirational!
