works in progress 3.2

It's been another week...yikes! My husband accused me of adding things to my list just to procrastinate to the extreme because I miss being in grad school. No. I don't miss school, but old habits die hard.
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I finished three more coats.  And now I am fully prepared to do some quilting. I started making the HSTs for the memorial quilts - this one is for my sister Nicole. The purple fabric (a.k.a. the material that my feed dogs just slip over) is from an outfit that our grandma wore to her wedding.

I ordered a bunch of my favorite batting yesterday, so I have no excuse to not get rolling on these quilts.

I also got all of the blocks from my First TimerBee group. I mentioned a while back that I had given the group a few photos of DC metro stations as inspiration, and look what these rock stars came up with!

quilt bee blocks!

Now all I need to do is fill in the spaces, add some sashing, and enjoy this work of art! I also need to get rolling on the March blocks. We are doing Grandmother's Flower Garden...my first hexagon experience.

  1. Your Bee blocks are so colorful and fun!
    Can't wait to see it all together in a quilt!

  2. oh, i love memory quilts, can't wait to see yours come together!

  3. Great Bee blocks! Can't wait to see how it comes out. I haven't been brave enough to tackle hexagons yet, but your fabric selection looks great.

  4. Those bee blocks are incredible! I love how everybody came up with something so different and cool from the Metro Station inspiration.

    Can't wait to see your Hideaway quilt. I've got a plan for mine, but it's waaaaay down on the priority list. : (

    Thanks for linking up, have a great week!

  5. Wow you have so much going (and done!) Quick question, how are you liking being a part of a bee?

  6. Awesome bee blocks! Looking forward to seeing your progress on that quilt.
