|Block 4: I'm the Queen Bee|
|Block 6: Doily Vine|
Also, if you happen to have the Let's Bee Quiltin' book and haven't made your quilt yet, I think there was a typo for the size of the vine in block 6. I got it all done and noticed it seemed way wider than the pictured one. I decided I didn't feel like ripping it all off to fix it. Taking a good half inch off the given measurement would work, I think.
I finished the main part of the top of the Bricks & Mortar quilt. The border fabric is striped and I decided it would look better to miter the corners instead of butting them like the pattern says. I feel that mitering is really fussy, especially when you have a pattern or stripe you want to line up. So I have been really putting off working on it.
|Ha ha! I just noticed this photo does not show the inner border. Oh well! Next time.|
My son's teacher is having her first baby soon. We had fun putting together a gift for her that included some of our favorites, including books, toys, and pacifiers. I made some burp cloths (of course) but didn't photo them. You can see my tutorial for burp cloths here. And I made a whole bunch of hair bows. I was really out of practice but I think they came out okay.
I'm working on a tutorial for sewing a cube with directional panels. That should be ready within a few days. I'm working on a new doll knitting pattern as well. I'll try to get a sneak peek photo soon. I have a few more of the Queen Bee blocks almost done. I will share my Kimberly Einmo class blocks. Maybe I will even get the borders onto that Bricks & Mortar!
