Bee Sewcial Catch-Up

So Bee Sewcial is chugging along, and while I've done most of my sharing on Instagram (@felicityquilts), I do want to make sure to record my activities here for posterity.

July's blocks were for Debbie A Quilter's Table. "The Bacon Consideration" prompt was fitting given her blog name. I dove into my rusty reds, browns and creams for this one and had fun with some fluid improv waves. I purposely made one block have more "fat" on it than the other to add a little realism - not all rashers are full of lean, meaty goodness.

We broke for August, then September's theme was Transitions, and Anne Play-Crafts gave us a beautiful piece of art to inspire us. She also asked for a large rectangular block. This was mine:

Flickr and I had a disagreement about that watermark. Flickr won and that's why it looks this way.

And finally, Kari Quilts for the Making invited us to create an Army of Self-Love, a theme I love. These hourglass shapes are all colours and sizes, meant to celebrate the diversity of our bodies, skin and beings.

I've probably said this before, but every month when I photograph the block(s) before sending them off, I think to myself that I would definitely love a whole quilt just for me made from them.

Speaking of whole quilts just for me, take a look at how beautiful my Lake Country blocks are!

I want to make a couple of more blocks, and then it'll be time for me to piece it. I'm so excited!

  1. Beautiful blocks! Can't wait to see your Lake Country come together!


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
