I can cross one of my Just Three Things off my list. I finished my May Beejeebers Bee block yesterday. The bee mama requested an “Orange Windows” block made with seaside-inspired colors such as aqua, gray and blue. I had so much fun picking out fabrics, I made TWO blocks! I’ve never made an orange peel, but it’s easy and on my list for something I’d like to try myself one day.
I stitched in gray on one block, and green on the other.
I had a hard time getting started on this block. Walmart was sold out of compasses (which the tutorial required) and in the midst of canning over the weekend, I lost the one I borrowed from my neighbor’s son. Luckily I found it!
Warning: Lots of photos ahead!
a cute Japanese turtle print
yep, that’s Full Moon Forest
not just umbrellas, beach umbrellas
seastars and…frog eggs??? I don’t want to say what I think this print really looks like.
bubbles and a print that kind of looks like a sand dollar
one of the newest from DS quilts and Salt Air waves
Salt Air whale tails and another DS quilts fabric
And then, DRAT, I noticed I didn’t stitch around the whale tail peel. As soon as I finish that up, these blocks will be in the mail to you, Karen.
Linking up to TNT Thursday.
