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.

Oh, they are lovely Nettie, Darci will love them. Have you got your fabric ready for March yet? I can't wait to get the next lot of fabric arrive to make some more blocks for other people.

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!
