Inspired...

I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted something on here, but I'm going to play the "I just bought my first house" card and not feel so bad about it! Anyhoo...I signed up for the Bee Inspired quilting bee hosted by Rachel, and so far, it has been great fun. I have made two blocks so far, one for Rachel and one for Dianah...


A Pinwheel for Rachel...





And a Vacation Home For Dianah...


AND, even more fun (for me), April was my month, so I have been getting all sorts of awesome blocks in the mail! This is my first quilting bee and I am definitely a fan! Here are the fabrics that I chose...




This is my inspiration quilt...


And as you can see from the Bee Inspired Flickr Pool, I am getting some awesome blocks! I even got a block from the famous Quilt Dad! This is so fun! Yahoo!

I was getting soooo excited! I thought you were going to show us a preview of the quilt or quilts!!

I feel totally lame! Sorry about that!

Hi Meredith,
I posted your block on friday, should be with you in a week or so. I'm not that happy with them, but honestly when I signed up for the swap I was in lala land about how much time a new baby takes up and thought it would be no drama. LOL! so sorry, there is no card or letter in your parcel, I just had to put it in the post when I had a moment to get to the post office. I hope they are ok.
Hugs
