So I have not been quilting as much as normally because we have battled H1N1 and the stomach flu here for the last 2 weeks. I even missed my LQS Sweatshop sewing night because I was so super sick!
I did finish some November quilting bee blocks in the few minutes I was not nursing a sick kid or sick myself.
My entry into the 'Hand Stitched' Embroidery SWAP for Jessica of twinfibers.
Missy sent us lovely Katie Jump Rope fabrics for the Sweet Dreams Bee. I barely got these done in October and mailed them 2 days late.
For November in the Sweet Dreams Bee, we got to make black and bright log cabins for Lori.
In October for Sew Kid @ Heart II, we worked with a fabric from Desiree.
For November in the Stash Busting Bee, we made wonky log cabins for Jill.
For November in BUZZCUTs Bee, I enjoyed playing with the Moda Neptune fabrics that Julie sent.
For November in the Sew Kid @ Heart Bee , I enjoyed making these airplane themed blocks for miniaturequilter.
I had a chance to get the border on my purple/white swap blocks and the backing done so it is ready for the quilter while tending to sick kids. I think it turned out lovely even though it is bigger than I expected.
I have had this black and bright swap block top finished for a little while, but recently got the border on and the backing ready.
I sent this and my Knot block top that I finished last month to Margaret from Quilts of Love for quilting. She is having a special on her blog so I decided to try her out!
