Description

Yeah- my blocks made it to Lori so I can now officially make a project for all the blocks for Bee Biased.
 
1/26/13 - So first up is January- Lori +Laweigel  The fabrics are Fairlyte Garden, and the blue one is Liberty Lifestyles and Alegria. The blue one shown here is actually being held prisoner in Atlanta's dead mail center. Despite accurate addressing on the part of yours truly... (ahem)...it went to Texas and then Atlanta.  When the post office called to explain...well they didn't really explain- they had no explanation whatsoever...just that I must petition it's release or else it goes into the auction of stuff that takes place there-and since I doubt it would auction at all...well you can guess where it goes then!!!! Who knew????
 
In any case, I had thankfully made two others, and I managed to find them...., scrounge up enough scraps from the blue one, and make a new one just like it....and then send them off. At that point, I couldn't decide which to send and it just seemed right to send them all! I figured Lori could use the extras for a potholder or something I'm so very glad they made it!
 
Info everyone else probably knows but I did not: When you mail a package, be sure to include a slip of paper inside with the address it is going to- that way, if it decides to go walkabout....when the authorities eventually track it down and open it...they will have somewhere to send it.  Live and learn!!!
 
Update 3/1/13-  added February and March blocks.
 
Update- June- Leoni's block arrived- of course I managed to miss taking a photo :(
 
 
Update 7/29/13- July block for Chandra.
 
Update- found a bad but serviceable photo of Cynthia's block for August- the geese are all variants of purple-but the colors don't look quite right in this, my only photo, and the corners just look washed out in the photo- so sorry everyone has to look at it:(((((
 
Update 11/3/13 Did a test run for November- not sure if the colors go well for what she has in mind but its such a fun block to make...I'm off to try another:)
 
Update 11/25/13 Second block for Jody...please excuse wonky photo-it does look better than this... not pressed or trimmed ( actually sent them untrimmed- better that way I think for travel;) I thought this one came closer to the color palette for Jody's blocks- hope she likes- actually tried 2 more which came out very wonky indeed-will download that photo asap... November has been wonky month for me- but I figured she could use them someway- even a quilted birdcage liner;))))  
 
Update 11/30/13 Finally found the photo buried in the files...arghhh...anyway...four blocks...took me a while to get the color combo I thought went well with Jody's original inspirations...glad she likes them:)))

Laweigel

Thank you Mymble !
I'm going to have one beautiful quilt!
Need to come up with a new name for the quilt...ideas?

True

Love these and wow...I had no clue about putting address inside. One of my son's college text books is sitting at a post office about an hour from us as it was ordered online and some how needed ended up in wrong place. I cannot get anyone at post office there to even answer the phone (can see where it is due to tracking) and no one seems to be able to help. We ended up having to reorder, and pay again!! a new copy and the place we ordered from is telling us eventually it should get sent back to them and they we can deal with it. Yes it will be called we are canceling the order. But it is incredibly frustrating to not be able to get any help when these things happen! I am so glad your gorgeous blocks finally made it:-)

True

Love your new additions!

Mymble

True Thanks- I didn't mix them up as Chrissybug asked- totally got that backwards- but I was happy with the final result and she is too:)- so all is well. I think my brain is stuck in "dud" mode;)))) The added benefit of swaps is we all get to practice forbearance with one another...I think I'm providing LOTS of opportunities:))))

True

Mymble LOL I think your work is wonderful...I am beginning to realize there is real beauty in some of the "things" that just happen when quilting!

Mymble

Thanks- you are sweet- and re: the stuff that happens- it is so true True - I was just talking to my daughter about this the other day- how when you have to improvise, and be resourceful with what you've got- it forces you out of your comfort zone and can actually help jostle you out of a rut- creatively speaking:).

Skynme

I love these little film strips. This is on my list of projects to do one day.

Mymble

Skynme Oh yes, you definitely need to do one of these- it was a very fun block to do- and I really love focal fabrics so it was fun to dig into the stash:)

Kathie

I love the purples! Wasn't this a fun block?

Mymble

Thanks- just wish I had a better photo- but you bet- this was paper piecing I really enjoyed:))))

True

Great fabrics for November...really striking.

Mymble

Ya think?- I'm looking at jodyrose's photo of her other blocks and even though this technically fits the parameters, I think I should do another with a softer feel like yours- which I love by the way. I have some sweet florals and a softer purple so may do that.

Mymble

forgot to tag you True

True

Mymble Oh that would be pretty...you could make a pillow from this one as it has great fabrics in it!

Mymble

Yes- True that's what I thought as well...and she could even border it a few times?

True

Love your new addition for November:-)

Mymble

True Thanks- for some reason this block got wonkier the more times I made it- must just be a November, stressed out, submitting 7 appplications tonight actually, boy am I glad were done travelling thing....in any case...Jody has at least one usable block...and hey some really cool birdcage liners;)))))
