Description

I'm participating in a bee over at NewBee Quilters. Already, I think this is going to be a great learning curve for me. It's my first bee, and as a fairly new quilter, by just making the first block, I found I took more care making a block for someone else than I ever do for myself!

Month 1 : February : for Quilt455 : Stepping Stones.
Month 2 : March : for Crafitebee : Sawtooth Star
Month 3 : April : for jonellk : Half Square Triangles
Month 4 : May : for Quiltnwool : Garden Fence
Month 5: June : I'm The Queen! My block updates are here
Month 7: AugustSkynme : X Plus block
Month 8: September : chriservin : Monochromatic slab block (red and yellow)
Month 10: November : Becklin_b : Concrete cabin

Silsbee

Beautiful!

AllPatchedUp

Great job Joke ! Turned out very nice, I'm sure Cathie will love it. :)

True

Love your block! I hear you on how much more care one takes when making a block for someone else!!

Quilt455

Oh Joke, this is so beautiful. I just love each and every fabric. You did such a great block. I can not believe how perfect you seams are and the stepping stone are wonderfully done. You would never know that you are a new quilter. Thank you so much.

Joke

Thanks Silsbee and Allpatchedup ! I'm glad you like it Quilt455 , and thanks for the kind words :)

Kruppcake

Nice work.

Chriservin

Looking good! Hoping to work on mine today.

True

Love the star and the one different point!

Quilt455

I am with Ture, love you star and the one different point. What a great idea.

AllPatchedUp

love your star....especially as the others have said, the varied point. Great job!! :)

Joke

Thanks everyone! :) I wasn't sure about the different point to begin with but Craftiebee said she liked scrappy so I thought it gave my block a bit of a scrappy feel!

True

Great fabrics for this month's block!

Craftiebee

I do love the single blue point, so I'm glad you warmed up to it! :D

Your HST for April are amazing, I love the colors you picked!

AllPatchedUp

Great fabric selections for the HST's. Looks great! :)

Quilt455

Joke, love your April HST block; great fabric and your HST look great.

Joke

I'm happy to hear the HST fabrics go together. I just randomly picked up large pieces from my scrap pile laughing

Quilt455

Joke another wonderful block for May. Beautiful

Mymble

July and August look great!

Joke

Thanks Mymble ! I hope Skynme and Kruppcake like them!!

Kruppcake

I love the July block you made for me. August is awesome too.

Skynme

OMG that is so Amazing...I LOVE IT!!!!!! Seriously its perfect! Thank you so much!!!! Did I use enough exclamation points to show you how much I love it and how excited I am? If not I can use more LOL. Seriously, I really LOVE it thank you so much!

Quilt455

Great block. But gee it is still July and you got August done already, You go girl,. I really, really hope I can get on track and not be running around like a crazy woman and get august block done early.

Joke

Glad you like it Kruppcake ! It's on its way as of today!

Skynme , are you sure you like it?? I can't tell wink I sent your block along with Kruppcake's... hopefully I put the right blocks in the right envelopes!!

Quilt455 , I think skynme just posted her block instructions at the time to coincide with one of my day's off so I had plenty of time to do it!! I also like to try and get my blocks out early since they have so far to go. I feel bad when I send them out late. This was an easy block though and maybe took me an hour tops to put together (I'd never made it before).

Skynme

Quilt455 Please don't feel rushed to get this done and shipped to me. Everyone has stuff going on and their lives are very hectic. Take your time, get to it when you have time. I tried to pick a quick block that was scrappy, I just happen to love this block.

Joke I could probably add a few more exclamation points if you like...I cant show myself jumping up and down LOL. I did grab my DD and tell her look at my awesome block...after the 3rd time she was like yeah, I saw it already...LOL(when she snaps that's when I know I have reached my limit)
I'm super happy I picked this block and I know that I am going to be so excited to see all the great blocks everyone makes.

HawkFan

Love that X-Plus square!

Quilt455

Skynme Thanks for letting me not feel rushed. But I don't have any "emergency" quilts to make right now so I should be able to get to it soon. Plus Jo said it was easy so I am looking forward to doing it.

Aizome

They're all super cute! I especially adore the August block.

Skynme

This turned out fantastic. Love the red it really pops out.

Quilt455

Joke, I love your sept block! I think it is great.

Joke

Thanks Skynme and Quilt455 ! I ended up trying out a second one to see if it would come out any better. I'm not sure how I feel about this block, but it was a nice challenge!

Aizome

Love your blocks!!!

Quilt455

Joke Had to smile when I saw your 2nd block because I almost did my 2nd block in yellow. I think it looks just fine.

Quilt455

Love your color but you stole my colors without even knowing it. hehehe, back to the drawing board.

Skynme

Love the colors you picked. I wanted to do aqua and hot pink, but I only had red in solid. Looks great!

Joke

Sorry Quilt455 ! I was originally going to use orange and green, but then I saw these fabrics and they just spoke to me!

Thanks Skynme ! It was hard choosing colours. I have plenty of solids but I never seem to have the right shade for what I want!!

Joke

Quilt455 , I just saw your comment above about the slab blocks. Perhaps we're kindred spirits of the fabric-choice world wink

Mymble

Love your November block...a really great '70's vibe happening there! smiley

Quilt455

Joke I think we are since I was going to use orange and red but decided to go with the teal, yellow and pink. Now I am not sure maybe still the yellow, teal and pink in different placement. Hmmm, got to think about it. And I don't mind being kindred spirits in the fabric choice world since I love you choices.

ArloDeanQuilts

Joke I love the fabrics in your block. Thank you!

Craftiebee

Your December block is gorgeous! Very excited to get started on mine, now!

Legogirl

I love it. Wow complete in record time thank you!

Joke

Legogirl glad you like it!! You posted at just the right time for me to work on it grin

True

Joke

True thankyou!! They were fun to pick out

ArloDeanQuilts

Quilt455
