August Kits are in the Mail

I finally mailed my August kits for my quilting bee.

I am requesting string blocks for a Fall quilt, using these fabrics and a mixture of different solid strips for the centers. I included directions, and links to a couple good tutorials for reference.

I was excited to carry my packages to the post office in style, thanks to this fabulous market bag my friend Amy made for me as part of a swap we did with each other last fall.

I am looking forward to snuggling under this new quilt-in-the-works on those crisp Fall days. I’m picturing a cozy campfire with a knitting project in hand. Can you tell I’m getting a little tired of the hot, humid summer days?

  • You are so good at putting fabrics together . Wished I was that good. I might have been quilting and sewing for many years but still not good at putting fabric together. That quilt will be so cute. Love that first block.

    Have a great day.

  • I’m doing the same thing for September in one of the VQB’s I’m in! I may have to check out the tutorials you note for future reference.
    Lovely fabrics you’ve chosen! Cheers~

  • Great color and fabric choices, your block is so pretty and what a great fall quilt you’ll have. Can’t wait to see the blocks you get back. Love the bag, lucky you.

  • Your partners will have a lot of fun making these and the fabrics you chose are delicious! I hope you get them all back!

  • Fabulous bee blocks and market bag!

  • Above comment from “Molly” is actually from me :)

    I guess she was the last to use this computer before me. Funny — that happened to someone leaving a comment on my blog earlier this week.
