Fresh Modern Bee 2 In Action!!
Well I've a few things to catch up with you all on but the most important has got to be my piecing of some squares for the 1st month of the Fresh Modern Bee 2. I hope Amy likes them!
To be more than honest I was a tad scared of even starting as this really is my first proper attempt at quilting! Luckily we had a great tutorial to follow from the infamous 'Film in the Fridge' blog so all is going well so far, the 4 squares above will be sewn into 1 large block. Now I had said that I would make 2 blocks for Amy, which is 8 squares in total but I have run out of fabric (very annoying I must say) and I'm not sure if it's because I've made an error or there simply wasn't enough fabric supplied, though to be honest there aren't a lot of scraps left over so I'm hoping it's the latter!!
So I have made 5 complete squares with 1 incomplete that can be finished with fabric from my stash. What I can't do unfortunately is complete the other 2 squares as I just don't have the variety of the right coloured fabric in my stash. It's poop I know because I feel like I'm letting Amy down but hey ho I can only do what I can!
Finally this week I posted my apron to Elka as part of the Great Apron Swap 2010 and my handwritten letter to Peg in Canada as part of the Handwritten letter swap, here are the parcels ready for the Post Office.
Mmmm, talking of the post I received the very lovely 'I-Spy' charm pack from Amy of 'Diary of a Quilter', this will go in my stash until I get chance to make a quilt with it, hopefully sometime this year!
The fabrics are all gorgeous and the piccies above are just a selection, believe me!
Now I wonder what's in this box that came today?? A ring for moi maybe......
