Description

Just wanted to share (so far) my great blocks from the Bee Biased Group. Love them all and thank you everyone! (It was so hard to photo them with my iPhone...and then my son told me it was because I have an "old, crappy" phone, great! And, my dog lurked around the back of the chair in almost every picture and then he finally came around and so I took his picture and he left! LOL! Dogs, sons, gotta love 'em)

I just received +Mymble blocks, yes blocks, she sent me 3!  She had a USPS mishap...the original block she made crisscrossed all over the US!  She also included one of her cute hand-made hearts along with the blocks-so sweet!  I will try to get better photos, but its rainy, wet and dark out today.  Thank you Margaret!!!!

Just received +Chrissybugs block-and the heart was included too!  Thank you Christine!!  Love the block and the heart!!!
Just got a package from +Sewqueen ! LOVE your cheerful block and thank you for the extra fabric!!! I will be making a few more Granny Square blocks to finish off my quilt and will happily use your cute pink polka dots! I especially love that you proclaimed me "Queen" and included that crown! Made me laugh and I made sure my husband saw it so he would remember I am a Queen :) Thank you for making my day so pink polka dotty!

+PosyP Fun block and great thimble!!!  Thank you, I love the polka dots you chose-fun block.  Love getting your package from England... Royal Mail, just for me.
  And, did you make that clever little bag that the thimble came in?  Thank you for your thoughtfulness during your birthday month! 

Jody's block buzzed in - thank you so very much, gorgeous colors - and so now I have all my Bee Biased blocks!  Hopefully, I will get them on my design wall and make one or two and I'll have a divine quilt from my very sweet Bee Biased friends:honeybee:

FINALLY!  I got the top finished!  It took me about 7 months...way too long...but, I just love how it all came together and I thank all the Bee Bias group for all your colorful contributions.

LOVE these all of them it is going to be so fun to see the quilt you make...and of course I love the dog;-) Sons and dogs do keep our lives way more interesting...I think the pictures came out wonderful. But what do I know I still have a dumb phone;-)

Laweigel

I am so pleased with all the blocks smiley

Readerowl

love, love the colors I see! And the dog. I see a granny square quilt somewhere in my future. These really inspire me.

Doesn't Rocky know he was supposed to make a block I guess he can get away with it since he's so cute. What a face!
The blocks are wonderful. How exciting to get these in the mail! Would you consider this an easy block for Newbee's?

Laweigel

LOL, Rocky likes squirrels, not quilting. He's just starting to turn grey, except on that funny ridge down his nose.
Granny Squares would be a super easy block for Newbee's. The block only needs squares cut, all the same size and since its scrappy, its fun to dig into your stash. Here's the tutorial:

Ohh, good to know! Thanks for the tutorial. I mightjust have to choose this for my month since I've only pinned at least 40 of these quilts.

True

Love the block and heart!!

Kathie

Your quilt is going to be beautiful! Love Rocky in the midst of quilt block pictures smile !

True

LOVE the latest block and also the heart! Chrissybugs you rock!

Mymble

So great to see all the blocks coming in- really great!

Laweigel

Thanks Ladies, for all the nice comments, and thank you to everyone who made the blocks!
Carolmarie regarding quilting...no, I have not thought that far ahead! But, I think straight line hand-quilting. I'm a little afraid to trim them down to size! And, I want to make a special Bee Bias label :)

Chrissybugs

Mymble thanks, Margaret. high praise from someone I think rocks, too.

Chrissybugs

True so sorry True. i hit the wrong reply button. you so rock in my world! thank you for the compliment!

True

Oh what a great new block!!

Laweigel These are beautiful. I love them all. I can not wait to see your finished quilt; it is going to be beautiful

Laweigel

Thank you Quilt455 ! But, all the credit goes to my creative Bee Bias group. I am looking forward to getting all the blocks together and sharing the progress. Its going to be a favorite quilt of mine :)

Chrissybugs

And we can't wait to see it!

True

Great new addition!!!

Posyp

Delighted to see that my parcel has safely arrived. Yes I did make the bag too, it is also a japanese design and ever so simple, 2 equilateral triangles sewn together, turned & sewn up.

I'm so happy I found this project. I was wondering when we would see ALL the blocks. How fantastic!!! I love all those bright colors you got. You are going to have SEW much fun placing them and moving them and moving them again to get them all just where you want them. Looking forward to seeing how you lay them out and then eventually, no pressure!, the finished product. Talented gals in this group!

Laweigel

I love all the blocks, they all play off each other, and it is going to be a great quilt!

True

Oh I love Jody's addition!

Posyp

Wonderful set of blocks there, and Rocky is just too cuute!

Laweigel

Thanks Posyp He is a funny dog, think Eeyore with red hair!

True

This is gorgeous! love seeing the top done. This block the more I see of it the more I like as it really does work as a scrap quilt, a coordinated one whatever! Great job.

Mymble

Lori- it looks fabulous- do you have an idea yet for the backing?

Laweigel

Thank you True , its really going to be a special quilt. Thanks, Carolmarie , I'm going to try to get this done in a more timely manner! And, Mymble , Thanks! I was just thinking about the back...not sure yet, maybe white with a band of little 2 1/2" blocks of scraps? I'm going to hand quilt this one.

Nexxus831

Laweigel oh wow hand quilt huh, I admire you. I don't think I could hand quilt anything larger than a doll quilt. I can't wait to see the finished quilt

Terryt1955

Lovely seeing all the blocks put together! I ended up choosing this block as well and can't wait to turn them into a quilt. Yours gave me inspiration to move it to the top 5 of my list!

Mymble

Laweigel sounds lovely- hand quilting will be so pretty with this!

Laweigel

Nexxus831 I love to hand quilt. I cant afford to send all my quilts out to be quilted, so I just started doing them by hand. I stopped worrying about making little tiny stitches and just jumped in and now my stitches are fairly consistent. Terryt1955 what are the other quilts on your list??? Please share! Thank you Mymble , I will enjoy quilting this...might use a color around each block...will keep you posted!

Kathie

What a beautiful quilt! How fun it was to have the opportunity to contribute to your creation!

Jodyrose

Lori,
LOVE IT, love the bright cheery colors against the white. Cant wait to see how you quilt it!
