I’m still here, working on some projects, but more important, clearing out the first floor of our house, before some major renovation will start in the Fall.
181 Squares and 40 triangles for one of the four patched blocks for the Birds and the Bees quilt (aka the Rowdy Flat Library quilt). I’m slowly sewing the rows together!
Preparing the flowers for the corners of block #2, called the Beekeeper.
A blurry sneak peek of the Queen Bee of the Beekeeper block.
And now for something completely different:
#quiltsforpulse – The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild is collecting quilts and blocks for the victims of the shooting at Pulse nightclub on June 12. MQG members around the world are invited to participate. The goal is to gather enough quilts to help not only the victims who survived, but the families of victims who perished, as well as first responders, nurses, police officers, etc.
I’m a member of the Dutch Modern Quilt Guild, and although we’re in the process of a second start, Rianne – @rianne_knitsandquilts on IG – asked for blocks for at least one quilt to send to the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild. The hearts will have all colours of the rainbow. I made six blocks in yellow and orange.
There’s progress on my Stonefields as well as on the Farmer’s Wife 1930’s quilt blocks, which are actually almost transformed into a quilt-top! More about these projects later!
So, it may seem a bit quiet here on the blog, but behind the scenes there’s a lot of activity! 😉
