June is my month for the Red & Aqua Bee. And this is the stack of fabric that I’m gonna be using for this bee–I added a bit of pink. Oh, how I wish my month came after September–I would love to add in some of Camille & Bonnie’s new line Bliss. That line has me doing some serious drooling! =)
I had originally planned on asking for star blocks and sending everyone 3 different fabrics to use, with the end result being a scrappy star quilt. But, recently I came across the Liberated Wedding Ring block–Here’s an example from flickr by Sewgirly!. I love all of the skinny little strips and odd angles.
This block is apparently from the book Freddy & Gwen Collaborate Again–which my library apparently has, however, you try to find that this book on the shelf. I spent a good 10-15 minutes trying to locate the crazy thing & there are only 2 small shelves of quilting books in the library. I had no luck–so, I came home and requested the book for pick-up. That was last week–they still don’t have it ready for me to pick-up yet–see, they couldn’t find the crazy thing either. Anyway, I digress.
I just finished up some lovely little hexagons today for the Hexagon Swap over on flickr. So, I should have a fun little hexie post for ya soon! =)
