First up is Diamond Ripples made from scrappy bits on a white background. Honest, it is a white background. The photos do not do it justice. There are lots and lots of HSTs in this block, so it is a perfect choice for a bee block. I would hate to square an entire quilt of these little guys on my own, but I am quite happy doing a block-worth for a bee buddy. I truly enjoyed stitching this one together, Rhonda.
Second in line was the Checkers block, again with scraps and a white background. In the center of the block, Rhonda asked that we each insert something (be it by appliqué embroidery, cross stitch...what ever) that is personal to each of us bee buddies. I, of course, choose to create the Fluffy Sheep logo through embroidery. I loved doing the backstitch and French knots, but boy satin stitch is not entirely my friend. That took some effort. Thank goodness I had time to kill flying to/from Copenhagen this week. It was a perfect travel buddy.
Rhonda, I hope you like them! I really enjoyed taking the time to make them. I even listened to your latest podcast while finishing off the little sheep! It was like you were here with me each step of the way.
