Bee Blessed: September Blocks

I have joined a virtual quilting bee hosted by Judith of Rags to Bags called Bee Blessed.  Together, these ladies are creating quilts for families in Belfast, one of my favorite cities in this part of the world.  I really like the idea of this bee and am so very happy that I can contribute.  Judith both hosts this sewing bee in person at a home as well as accepts blocks from those a bit further away....from folks like me!




This month they are making wonky star cot (crib) quilts from a tutorial posted at Silly BooDilly.  It's a good excuse to try my first wonky star, so I gave it a go!  I made 3 stars, but only had 2 ready for photos before the sun went down.  So it goes.  Looking in the flickr group, it seemed that most folks were using muted colors, so I tried to match them.




They are also looking for fabric donations, so I tossed in two "girly" fat quarters and a cat print that would be great for a kid's quilt.  Hope she likes them :)

Thanks for letting me play along, Judith! 

They are talking about me at CraftGossip.com

In other fun news....my little basket from the weekend is featured on Craft Gossip.  You can see the post here.  Lucky you, Partner 1!  Your basket is getting a little bit of attention :)   The article made me smile.  They are totally right in saying I joined in this swap to force myself to do new things.  Little do they know I have one foot further in the deep end than that.

Well done with the wonky stars - mine were my first efforts too!

It's good to push ourselves that little bit isn't it? Your basket is gorgeous! I've tried one out too they are fun!

Well done on being featured. And so you should because your basket (and everything else you make) is gorgeous. Judith will love the stars. It is great because I think lots are being sent in now. Her bee is off to a wonderful start.

Now wondering what else you're making! The wonky stars are wonderful - they're going to look great with the others Judith has received. Well done on being featured - it's well deserved!
