Wee Bee, a new project

Three things to be happy about:
(1) painted wooden frogs
(2) colorful porch chairs
(3) Maryland Live! casino

Last time I went to Maryland Live! I didn't win big, but I'm still happy about it!

That was some stay-at-home bee, wasn't it?  You'd think I was sewing and quilting all month long and should have a trunkful of stuff - not!

But I did get a good start on another house quilt among other things, using a lot of my black and white fabrics.

We had great show n tell at Saturday's bee, as usual.

This cute bee block was shared by Marlene, using a stained glass technique.  All the black parts are actually the background square.

Sandra E. made this mask using her own pattern.

She was inspired by a workshop she took in March at a 54-40 Quilters Guild retreat.

Carolyn asked for suggestions on a name for this bicycle quilt.  It was partly made from feed sacks, so a few of us suggested "Recycle".

Carolyn created the bicycle!

Marlene's shoes!

I was in a shoe block swap a few years ago, where'd I put those pesky blocks??

It was all followed by a string workshop, where I shared techniques on how I made this star quilt.

Do you recognize the bag-o-scraps in the background?  They're the leftovers I rescued from the guild meeting in March, hoping they'd all fly away. 

Sadly there are still some leftovers!

That's it for now, sew forth and sew on til later ...
