The Bees Knees Block Party



Some time ago I joined a virtual quilting bee. It seems like it will be a lot of fun. Each month one persons sends 11 other people the fabric and instructions to make a block, actually we are each doing two blocks for the same person. I got the fabrics and made the blocks, a wonky pinwheel. I was a bit anxious knowing that I would be cutting fabric for someone else and sewing a block for them. I did make a test block first, good thing too because I had the pinwheel going the other way and it does make a difference the way you lay it out and sew it.
I haven't made up my mind yet which block I would like to have done but I have some time yet because my month isn't till August but I will need some time to get organized and get the packages out in the mail.

Looks like your blocks turned out great! I plan to make mine this afternoon. I think I'll do a practice block too. Thanks for all your comments on my blog - I really appreciate it!
