Lots of quilting happening here!

I swore I'd never do this. But I have to explain my limited number of blog posts recently - because honestly - they'll be few and far between for a short while. Yes, I'm working on a big project. I'm excited, challenged and enjoying every minute of it. Unfortunately, I can't share it with you just yet. So hang in there with me; don't delete me from your reader - I love sharing my passion for quilting with each one of you!

In the meantime - I've got some small projects here and there. This week I made Toni's blocks for the Redbird Bee. She chose a Spool block designed by Krista Fleckenstein from the book Modern Blocks. Toni changed it up a bit and had us use 1 1/2" strips for the "thread" portion. I love how they came out!
I did 2 blocks - a yellow and an orange. It was my first time using linen in a block, but it won't be my last. I love the texture and it was as easy as could be to work with.
