Quilting Bees

Sharing Some Pie

Ringo Pie that is. =)  Ringo Pie is a quilting bee that I am in & I know you’ve heard me say it before but let me say it again…”the women in this group are amazing!”  This group is forcing me to step way out of my comfort zone.  I finished up my block last week for January–it is Lisa’s month and she has requested doors for her blocks, specifically midcentury doors.  This is the 3rd bee that I have been in with Lisa and the girl’s got some mad taste–so the fact she had such a great idea was no surprise to me. =) 

Here’s the block I came up with–it’s got a little bit of Nicey Jane siding going on and one of those fancy metal doors–you know, the kind that either closes so slowly you think it may never shut or it bonks you on the behind on the way in no matter how quickly you move.  It was a fun month and one that I wasn’t quite so intimidated by– now November, talk about intimidation, it was a dessert theme & talk about some amazing blocks.  I think my little black forest cake block is going to be left on the dessert table LOL!

For February we are making Union Jack blocks which I think will be a lot of fun–it’ll give my brain a bit of time to not have to give so much thought to a block. LOL!  IF you want to check out some of the amazing blocks this group is making pop on over to our flickr group. =)
