Another Fabric Stack–Red & Aqua

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! =)

  • Where are you swapping these hexagons? I am working on the hexagon quilt along but I had no idea about a swap. Man would I love to get my hands on some of those you made (saw them on flickr) to die for I'm telling you.

  • I love your red and aqua choices! The pink really looks nice! Can't wait to see the blocks you get back!

  • The wedding ring is also in the Liberated String Quilts book. I bought the book just for the instructions on that block, I love it too. šŸ™‚

  • That's a delicious stack of fabrics! Bliss is just that – what a fantastic collection. I like the block you have chosen too. Ann šŸ™‚

  • Thanks everyone! And thanks for that tip Bessie–I just requested it–hopefully they have better luck finding that one LOL!! =)

  • That aqua/red quilt is going to be gorgeous using that block.

  • That is a gorgeous stack of fabrics! And just think, the timing means you can do something totally different with Bliss–which is so squee-worthy, I can hardly stand it!

  • Oh Meg–we both know I am going to be snatching some of that goodness up! =)

  • Hi there, I just found your blog today (it's great!!) and I LOVE the fabrics in your stack of blue and aqua – can you give us some more info about what fabrics are in the stack?? thanks you so much!
