Back at the beginning of the year I posted about the EB 2012 Quilt Bee . EB is short for Essential Baby, an online parenting forum that I no longer frequent, but a group of us that "met" on there in a quilting forum still "talk" on FaceBook. So we decided to have a Quilt Bee. Of course, just as it started, I broke my leg, slowing down the process a tad! I also lost my sewing mojo for a little while, so some of them had to wait longer than was polite for me to get off my backside and produce the goods! The good news is I am up to date, and just waiting for the last package to arrive from Helen at Patchy Work of Mini Grey. So here is my catch up post on the 2012 EB Quilt Bee.
I also did a blue one for her, but I can't find any pictures!
Next up was Bec (I think! This is where I ended up with 4 months worth of blocks to catch up on !) who had us make log cabin variations for her. I ended up doing a couple of wonky log cabins
Next came Ninny and Maude with this gorgeous cross block. I love the gray in these.
At this stage I was doing a massive sew session in order to catch up! Next in the languishing line was Stitchin' Skilly who had us do this wonderfully bright and funky block.
As you can see, I miscalculated my cutting and ended up with a big of selvage in the top block. It should sew into the seam line! Great apologies were made.
Tin Whistle came up with a terrifying design that looks way scarier than it actually is.
There was lots of breath holding as I prayed the lines would all meet up!
Lastly the was Mand's Nest with these lovely blocks
As for my turn, I asked people to make coin stacks with batiks.
They have started to come back and I'm looking forward to turning them into a quilt top.
Despite my mojo going missing for awhile, I have really enjoyed this quilt bee. I'm hoping we do another one next year as I would like to do another in a small group who are fairly forgiving before I venture into the wider world of quilt bees!
