My bee month

So it is March and that means my 'bee' month.  very exciting.  I meant to be more organized, and have my fabric mailed out to the bee members before the end of the month, but being sick 1/2 of February really threw my month's productivity level off!

I mailed packets of Kona cottons to everyone...both bee!  Odd that I ended up having March in both monthes, but nice I think.  I sent everyone a fat eighth of Kona Snow and then some scraps of every color I could pull together. 

Hoping for flying geese, friendship stars, liberated stars and shoo fly blocks to make their way back to me over the next 2 months. 

The color wheel quilt is for Hugo's room, and these blocks will be for his room also.  Two twin beds in his room.  Here are a few sample blocks i made for the quilt:

I hope everyone has a good time with this month's block.

Iva's block

I finished up a block last night for my Dozen Quilter's bee...
It was a fun one to do, and i like the colors Iva requested we use.
I don't use nearly enough yellow.

I have been sick and not sure why I am still coughing and sneezing...feel really out of energy...and this illness has really hampered the working out I have been doing with my new Wii Fitness Coach.  :(
May have to break down and call the doctors office...

We have managed to make it outside to play in the snow a few times in the past few days though...wish it was not so cold though...

I got a question about the outermost fabric in bee block...I wasn't able to respond to you robinde because you have your id set up at no reply...but the fabric is: Woodstock for Benatrex
