Today was a break from Nearly Insane. I decided to put those teeny tiny pieces aside for the day. Instead, I made some birthday blocks for 2 friends in my Bee. One wanted indigo and white and the other wanted cherry red and white.
The blue and white was easy - I still had lots of blue scraps out on the table from my blue trees blocks. The red? Oh dear - I really love how these turned out. I just might have to make myself a red scrappy quilt. Add it to the never-ending list.
Aside from my quilt guild, I belong to a couple of smaller "bees." There is some overlap in our membership but each group is slightly different - in focus, purpose and time commitment. The birthday blocks are for my NewBee group. Each of us picked a color theme and the other members make blocks for us during our birthday month. The size range is in increments of 3", up to a 12"x12" block. We make an equivalent of 2 blocks - 12"x12". There were 2 birthdays in March.
Tomorrow - back to Nearly Insane.
