Bee Blessed Modern Sampler

On Saturday there was much fun and frolicks as we Bee Blessed ladies beavered away on blocks & quilt tops.

Despite the impression given by some of these pics that all we did was laugh, we were actually v.productive!

One of the quilts we are working on is a modern sampler quilt, which is already destined for a needy family.

Here is the finished quilt top, ready to be basted and quilted.

There were more sampler blocks donated (as well as other blocks) which we have put together into 2 more lap size quilts.

And in working through our donated fabrics we have 3 children's quilts being worked on (pics of some of these here),  as well as our log cabin man quilt.  Hopefully when we next meet I'll have pics of those.

Thank you once again to all of you who have been donating blocks over these past 6 months.  There is still time to make a Pippi Longstocking block for the month of March, the tutorial is here.

And check out a fab giveaway over on Susan's blog, promoting a delicious new online shop, The Village Haberdashery!
