It's My Month!

Yes, it has finally arrived. My month for the Newbee Quilters bee (hive 3) on Threadbias. YAY! I have had a lot of fun making blocks for other people. Lots of blocks I probably wouldn't have tried otherwise. But now it's my turn!

Here is the sample I made for my bee-mates:

Yes, it's a granny block! With brightly colored sashing! Isn't it fun? I can't wait to see what my bee-mates come up with for their blocks! My plan is to then sash them again in white when I put the top together. That way I figure it won't matter if the whites don't match (since we're doing this all from our stashes) because they won't be right up against each other. I'm so excited about this!!

Did I ever mention that I won a giveaway over at 627handworks? Well I did! Here's the awesomeness I received:

A Simply Color charm pack and matching Aurifil thread! I have never sewn with Aurifil, so I was SUPER excited to win this! I already have big plans for the charm pack... pictures of that project later this week!

That's all that's going on in my neck of the woods! How about you?


  1. Nice win! It'll be great to have that thread on hand for different things.

  2. Great block and wonderful winnings! :)

  3. Aurifil is delicious. So awesome. Yay for winning!

    And lovely block. I love love love the border. It's so refreshing! :)

  4. Congats on the win! Love the block, should be fun to see what folks do with it for sure. :)


Thanks so much for leaving me a comment! They always brighten my day :) I do my best to respond to everyone unless there's a giveaway.
