DQS9 finished and a bee-block frenzy....

I have been a bit quiet this week.. Having been away longer than anticipated, I was behind with commitments, and if anybody knows me, they know I like to be in time!!

First up was finishing DQS9. It's all done, quilted and bound and being sent off tomorrow. I hope you like it partner!!



A shot of the back...



Then there were the various bees...

I was behind for Christiane's 9 patch for July in the Eurovision bee... sorry Christiane you had to wait so long... I managed to get three blocks out of the fabrics for you.




That finished off July. In August there were Marit with a fantastic photo tutorial (thanks Marit, I love a good tutorial!) to make a sweet person.



and Leah, who is making a cute pink heart quilt for her daughter.



Karen, over at the Fresh and Funky bee wanted a 12 1/2" block that consisted of any pattern that can be divided in squares (like 4 patch/ 9 patch etc.). Cat set us onto the path of Quilterscache, and I found this one. I hope you like it Karen..



Lynz requested wonky stars for the Quick Christmas bee..



whereas Maria was making an advent calendar...



That rounds up the backlog to the bees for August and I am up to date!!

Rests to send out my own fabrics for the Eurovision bee for September, and both the Eurovision and Fresh and Funky September blocks which are still to arrive. Also awaiting Jo's Christmas block. But....

those are all September ones and... I AM UP TO DATE again.... YAY !!!

Now catching up with all that did not get done in the house.. lol... so you might not hear for a bit again... See you soon though!
