Tree for Jen by myfullcolorlife - Vickie
Tree for Jen, a photo by myfullcolorlife - Vickie on Flickr.
This tree is for Jen in the Bee Unique Bee Knotty bee on flickr. She sent out the white background fabric and the bark fabric then asked us to create a tree using favorite fabrics or colors. I am really liking red and pinks together, as well as turquoise and all kinds of greens.

OJRR Bee block for Kerry

This block is for Kerry in our Quilting Journey Round Robin Bee. This is actually foundation pieced on a square of interfacing. Worked well! I fussy cut the center square and then started adding more of my current favorite colors. She said she liked brights. I am so glad!

Here is my block with Kerry's starter block. I didn't take the time to photograph all of them together {School in May, son graduating, 7 family birthdays}, but it is going to be a wonderful quilt!!!

Deanna's block - Fussy Cut Love Bee

This block is for Deanna in the Fussy Cut Love Bee. I love that hummingbird. And those colors!! This is going to be a gorgeous quilt!! Working on it reminded me of the summer at the cabin in Colorado that I patiently sat with my finger perched under the hummingbird feeder until the birds got used to me. I still remember how their little feet felt! Such tiny, beautiful birds!
