Bee blocks

This month for A Dozen Quilters Hollie asked us to do some courthouse steps blocks.
She asked that we use orange, gray, and blue...I hope she likes what I put together.
I might make a few more...but solid prints ONLY.  I love this block.

And to squeeze in a tiny bit more sewing time this afternoon I gave Colette the camera and she busied herself with taking a few pictures...the ones of me have been deleted, but this was a favorite picture she took of my desk:

And a big thank you for the red cross blocks I received over the past few days.  I called my LQS about quilting it for me and Julie said she would do it for FREE since it is a fundraiser!!!
She also told me the shop is closing in May.  BOO HISS.  She wants to concentrate on her family and I can't think of a better reason to close shop...but still I will be said to see a local quilt shop close.


  1. What a bummer about the local shop! Good shops are so hard to come by it seems!

  2. Wow -- that's a sad surprise. ;-( How nice of Julie to quilt your quilt for you though. Love the picture of your desk! (Oh, and why do you only like solids for the blocks -- I think they look great!

  3. Good looking blocks! Let me know if you need some more charity blocks in the future. I would love to help.
    My five year old loves taking pictures with the camera. She has caught some great shots too!
