Bee block catch up - and a new sewing group catch up

Fallen a bit behind in my Bee blocks - so made a concerted effort yesterday to catch up...

These 2 are for Nicolette's October do.Good stitches quilt - Nicolette is a very, (actually, she rates in capital letters - VERY) talented quilter and I often sigh at her work (take a look at her blog and you'll see what I mean!) and she asked for a warm and a cool bowtie block - so here they are - they'll be winging their way to  Europe when I get to the PO tomorrow.

Next one is for Shirley in our Quilt Club Australia Bee...

Shirley asked for a convergence block in black and white - Shirley is the Queen of convergence blocks and whilst making this one I can understand the allure!

...and finally, I'm the Queen Bee for November for do.Good stitches so I've asked for Converging Corners in manly greys and blues - I don't think I quite mastered the process so I'll have to make a couple more...I like them though :)

Now - as the title mentioned, there's a new Sewing Group been formed by the indomitable Sally, the Peninsula Sewshells, and the inaugural meeting is at the Frankston's the flyer:

  1. Great blocks, I especially love the blocks for Nicolette.

  2. I love the bow tie blocks you've made for Nicolette too, the colours are really effective. Well done!

  3. Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you there. :)

  4. I really like the converging corners blocks. Still want to make a quilt with that ; )

  5. Beautiful blocks! I am thinking about making the second one for the Hurricane Sandy charity quilts. I can't remember who is taking the blocks now, but I am sure I will run into more posts about it.

  6. Shirley's block is lovely! Looks like you made good progress on your bee blocks.
