i finally joined a quilting bee. i'm in the Simple Modern Quilt Bee. We make blocks from our stash and this month, the recipient is Rene.
Her theme was "Angles" and she chose the colors pink, orange, green, and yellow. so right away i got to work outside my comfort zone.
btw, now i've gotten a little taste of how scary it is to stitch blocks for someone else. i'm worried that i did the wrong thing, or that i did it in an unacceptably crappy fashion. things did not go exactly as i'd envisioned--i need to learn to consider scale and value, but i hope she likes the blocks anyway, and that they'll work for what she had in mind.
it does become addicting. i've already signed up for another bee.
