Caught Up!!!

It feels so good to have these done finally. Note to self, don't join anymore Bee's that have time limits! Yikes!


I was supposed to have all of these done for the Vintage Sheet Freedom Bee before Delilah was born....4 months ago.Yeah, that never happened.


But she is finally taking a few predictable long naps in a day so i was able to pull out all of the sewing stuff again and get to cracking.


These are so fun and easy to do. There is no measuring or precise cutting involved in most of the process. I just take the fabric and scissors and start cutting strips. They each take on a life of their own and each one is a little different.


Some were harder than others for me. Color was sometimes a challenge and the quantity of fabric i was sent was also sometimes a challenge....to make sure i had enough to finish was a lot of pressure. But i guess part of the fun is making those things work.


This block in particular was really hard for me....when i opened the package I thought the fabrics were never going to work together...in the end i think it turned out to be my favorite. The challenge for me on that one was to make the color of the pink fabric stand out, not the actual pattern on the fabric.

They're great! Hopefully all of the ones you get back turn out equally awesome.

These are awesome Leslie! You were not the only one, but you had the best excuse lol!! I've been dipping out of bees lately too. Somehow the earthquake has shaken my sewing mojo out of the house!!
