Lately it feels like what little time off I have is long since spoken for. Prepping veggies from the co-op share, running the cat to the vet, keeping up with reading for the library book club (thank goodness I have August off from that), epic mountains of laundry--all of that plus the heat (omg, the HEAT and HUMIDITY!) makes for not a whole lot of sewing.
This weekend, I did, however, get a few things done for the girls of the Beehive.
June was Amy's month, and she mailed out Kona Ash plus scraps in red, orange, yellow and sour green to make -, + and = for her "All things equal" picnic quilt for her and her hubby. This was a lot of fun, and I loved her fabrics. The block is 12.5" to be finished at 12".
Andi was so excited about her Beehive month (July) that most of us, even overseas, got her fabrics this past week. She sent out green strips for the centers, lots of red, pink, green, purple and black/white scraps for some string block action. I made 5 x 6.5" blocks for her:
It should come as no surprise, if you've read my block, that I had no problem cranking these little cuties out and could have kept going for days. In fact, it sparked me back up to make some more of my blue string blocks, which have been sitting to the side (all 19 of them) as I try to figure out what I want to do with them...
