This week I've been prepping to send out my fabrics and instructions to the Bee Europa gang as JULY is my month! I sewed one and a half blocks at FQ Retreat so I decided I should finish the half block (yay - a WiP completed) and do an additional one as a tester to see if I've included enough fabric in each baggie/envelope. I think I've got the right amount so now the bundles are now [almost] ready to be posted next week. This is my first ever month being a 'queen bee' [trying something new] and I can't wait to see what the Bee Europa 'worker bees' sew up for me! I love wonky as you may already know, so here are my three blocks so far:
They get progressively wonkier as I make them!! I think the quilt will look great once all the bee blocks are together and I can't wait for this quilt to be sewn and on my bed -- I've wanted to use my green, purple and grey fabrics for ages (some are actually considered 'my precious' as well) - woohoo!! I'll be making more blocks so that it is big enough as I don't think 12 will be enough to cover my bed [King size]. Here are all the bundles in the baggies:
And now for even more exciting WiP news!! Today I managed to sew the back for my Green-grey-teal-turquoise quilt top made way back in March - yay!! Feels good to be one step closer to another finish, which I will hopefully get finished by the end of the month so I can link it to the 2nd Quarter Finish-Along. I promise I ironed it and those are nice straight seams and edges -- it was the way I pinned it to the line and the wind that makes it look odd and wrinkly and not square ;)
I used my wonky block from my Sew into Solids Flickr project and a whole lot of Kona! I love how simple it is and with the straight grid quilting I plan to do it should look even better once it is done. Looking back through this post I can see that there is a lot of green and grey in my life!
Anyways, here is my updated WiP/UFO list:
