4 x 5 Bee on Flikr

Hope everyone in the USA had a good Thanksgiving! Minimal family drama, good food, and good Black Friday shopping deals... can't complain here!

The postman was nice to me yesterday too - I received this block for my flikr 4 x 5 Bee and it is AWESOME! It came all the way from Australia from one of my great group mates.

4x5 Modern Quilt Bee


Isn't it great?? I am obsessed with that Mendocino line from Heather Ross and am so excited to now have a block for my quilt featuring this lovely fabric. It goes well with my 2 mermaid pillows I posted a few weeks ago.

I was able to spend a little time sewing today and got these 2 blocks completed for my 4 x 5 Bee group. I wish I had been smart and only signed up for 1 bee this quarter but alas... these are only 2 out of 11 that need completed by Jan. 15. With me being gone for 11 days in Germany for Christmas/New Years I need to get crackin'!


4 x 5 Bee - for Wendydi1


4 x 5 Bee - for Life's Rich Pattern

I really like this flying geese pattern - it showcases pretty fabrics well and works great with my Flikr Bees since most people choose 3 colors and a neutral background color. It is pretty easy to put together but looks fancy, which is always a plus. Hopefully I will have more time this week to make a few more... stay tuned!

Oooo... and just a fun little piece of information to share with you: Accuquilt FINALLY mailed out my Go! Baby cutter! Yea, the one I won at the end of September... it has been awhile. The girl who did the giveaway has been awesome tho and finally got through to them and it is on its way to my house right now ahhhhhhhhhh!!!! Hopefully by Wednesday it will be here and I can't wait to play with it and tell you all about it!
