It's been non stop around here these last few days. And what do you do when you are flat out? Sign up to a bee of course! Well that's what I have done, because it sounded like so much fun and I just couldn't resist!
So thank you so much Maria for inviting me to join your wonderful bee...
There are 6 lovely members, who I am so looking forward to getting to know much more. Do take a look!
The idea is that we each make a strip, 40" x 8" and then pass it on to the next person. A Round Robin if you will. So the fab thing about it is, we each get to contribute to one another's quilt, and we all have a finished quilt top at the end of it too! I just loved the concept, it really is going to be the ultimate friendship quilt.
Anyway, in case you missed my post the other day, here's the fabrics I decided to use for my first strip.
It's the Gypsy Girl Collection by Lily Ashbury. I love them so much it was hard to cut into them!
It look me a while to come up with a design that wasn't going to take me too many hours, but at the same time was going to be pretty and show of the gorgeous fabrics.
In the end I decided to have a go at some Octagons. (not Hexagons, as I may have mentioned in a previous post. Doh, can't count!) This is what I came up with.
I just love the colours in this bird fabric. Luckily bought extra of this one :-)
And aren't these deer adorable.
So that's my first strip done! I am so excited (and nervous) to send it off to Julie, who will be adding to it in round two. And I am equally excited (and equally nervous) about receiving and adding to Amy's strip, which from what I have seen so far is amazing!!
This is my first ever bee, and it's so much fun. I look forward to sharing sneak peeks of the rest of my strips with you.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
