Totes and bees

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

I finished up my second Backyard Baby tote yesterday…..

here the two of them are – the outsides….

and the insides….

I’m happy with the result – but won’t be doing any more of those teeny weeny squares and sashing for a while I don’t think!!

I also got some lovely post yesterday….

From Fiona at Poppy makes (EEEEP EPP Bee)

I now have 6 blocks…and I love the way they look together. This is going to be a really gorgeous quilt – hopefully the other blocks will start coming in the mail anytime now.

I also got more Sew Euro-bee-an Sea Glass blocks from Tacha. This afternoon I think I might start trimming all these blocks to size and perusing about the next step. Once I’ve caught up with some outstanding bee blocks, that is!

So much to do…and so little time….I think I need the fairies to give me a few more hours in my day!

Have a good one!

Helen

    The twinnie bags are lovely and so are your EPP blocks. The kona snow should be arriving any day and as soon as it does I shall make your blocks. I can’t wait to see your sea glass blocks assembled.

    I have to say, I do love the visuals of patchwork and quilting ;)

    Really love those totes. I have to start on my Christmas sewing as I thought it would be a good idea to make totes and drawstring bags for family and friends this year.

    Gorgeous bee blocks too. Will be fun to see the finished quilts.
