Sew Sweet Bee Block

3.11.2014

Good morning! Spring is really trying to come to my area lately! I couldn't be more thrilled. This was a long cold winter...

This month is my turn to be request blocks from my Sew Sweet Bee group. Does that mean I am Queen Bee? I have heard that term, but wondered if that is what it means. *pondering*

 Let me tell you, trying to decide what block I wanted was a headache! I went back and forth for months! In my usual way, I made my decision at the very last second. Did you all see the great blog hop last month that Moda had that featured alphabet blocks? *The link to the hop is no longer working. =(* I decided I wanted my bee friends to make the first letter of their first name and to put their own personality in it. After I get all the blocks I will make the rest and use colors to bring them all together, or do something else entirely. It is a work on progress in my mind. 

Yesterday, my first block arrived in the mail!! Renee @ Sewn With Grace made this darling block for me!! She also sent a sweet mini charm pack by V and Co. Right now, I am feeling pretty bad for the first two queen bees because I didn't send them any extra goodies with their blocks. *hanging head in shame*


Last week I started quilting my Swoon. It is taking forever! I am on the homestretch now. The end is in sight!! I love it!


Before I go, I realized I haven't thanked you in far too long, dear friends, for taking the time to come read my blog,  post comments and your overall support and encouragement. I truly do appreciate each and every one of you, and yes, that definitly includes the lurkers that are too shy or too busy to comment. =)  

Thank you!
Thank you!
Thank you! 

Have a happy Tuesday!

  1. Your Swoon looks lovely! I can't wait to see it all finished. I REALLY need to start work on the first of two Christmas Gift quilts. But the past week hasn't been too good and I'm just not "in the mood" to start a new project. Gosh I hate when I lose my mojo! Maybe seeing your Swoon all finished with give my mojo a kick! Take care!

  4. I love how the straight line quilting looks...considering this for my quilt. I suffer from perfectionism so when I am ready to actually quilt I am afraid to start and ruin it...Have a happy, blessed day, Amy!

  8. That 'R' block is sew cute! I've been in some block exchanges, and forgot (didn't think) to include a hostess gift. I finally remembered with my last exchange. Don't worry about it.

  11. Amy, I love the look of your straight line quilting! SO much JOY in a finished quilt. Thanks for your encouraging comment at the girlfriend gap :) Doing a two color quilt has been fun. Each time I finish a block it becomes my favorite. I look forward to seeing your blue and white quilt. Janita

  12. Renee's block is really cute with the ruler fabric. And I love your swoon. Can't wait to see it finished. For my month to be Queen for the Global Scrap Bee I chose "Scrap Jar Stars" It is very hard to decide on a block. Can't wait to see your letter quilt!

  14. Love the look of your Swoon! Very brave to quilt it yourself, as it is a big girl! Your R is just perfect and the ruler fabric is the icing on the cake!

  15. that should be fun to get the letters. you might even be able to spell some words. I am actually working on the letter blocks myself.
    I can see how your quilt would take so much time. Close quilting!
