January Bees

This week I got my January blocks in the mail to Sunni of Love Affair with My Brother for the Stash Bee.  She requested a tree block and a signature block, so here’s what I sent her way:

I added some white borders to the blocks I’ve received so far as part of Beejeebers.  I also requested tree blocks—or house blocks—to make a quilt called “Wonky Town.”


I received three more blocks this week and plan to add the white borders to them this weekend.

And I made some more progress with my Farmer’s Wife Sampler Blocks.  Here are my blocks laid out with the same blocks I made for Sunny in her fabric choices. 


Finally, I completed this quilt for my first finish of 2012.

I am linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday for my bee blocks and my first quilt finished for 2012.  Hope you got some projects finished up this week, too!


  1. Well, Busy Bee sure is a good name for you. I love my blocks!!!!!

  2. You've been busy, love all your fun blocks and the quilt turned out fabulous. Way to start 2012!!!

  3. WOw! You've been a busy girl. I swear. I will get your block in the mail soon!!! I've been so busy with the bridal shower (thank God it's tomorrow!) that I haven't had time to think!!

  4. Your wonky town is going to be so cute!

  5. Your newest quilt is lovely! The straight line quilting is a perfect addition! It´s also fascinating how different fabrics and colors can change the feeling of a quilt. All your FWQ blocks are beautiful but they feel completely different.

  6. Congratulations on the finish and your house/city blocks are so sweet!
