For my month as Queen, I chose the wonky log cabin block, following a great tutorial by Nicole at Mama Loves Quilts.
I asked for solids, as I loved Nicole's block so much, but also said bold, bright prints would suffice.
Well, the hive did me proud! Look at these beauties:
First through the letter box was this winner from my pal at Handmade Somethings
Then I went on holiday and had a HUGE pile of lovely parcels to greet me. You know what they say about brown paper packages (but more on that later).
First to be unwrapped was this lovely block from Joanna at My Quilts and Other Stories which looks like sweeties.
The Occasional Quilter went off-piste with this colour explosion
Nessa sent me this lovely mix of solids and prints, including some I recall from the Stitch Gathering.
Could I believe my eyes when I saw this from Patchwork Alley? One of my favourite things.
And her block:
Espirit Patch whipped up this block for me:
This was was signed off Love Natalie
From the Mindful Quilter, who sent me two! What a champ.
From the machine of our organiser, I'm Studio Lou, blocks with chocs! They didn't last long...
This gorgeous block is from Claire E Poppins:
Now, I just need to decide how to sew them together - to sash or not to sash!
Thanks again for all my bee chums for their hard work and lovely blocks. I am really enjoying being part of my first bee!
