Challenge and Bee's

Last week I joined Amy's one week challenge and I THINK I made it in time. I wanted to get my bee blocks done by then and I just finished about 1 hour ago!

1 year, 12 quilts
This is the block that Ruth wanted this month. I can't believe how straight my seams are! They are NEVER that straight! We used Oh Franssen's tutorial on Sew Mama Sew. I am glad she chose this block because I have wanted to try it. It takes a little bit but I love how straight the seams are. 

Here are Pat's blocks. I really liked this block and it was so easy. I like easy! It's amazing what you can do with flying geese! 

Here are Carol's blocks. She requested something with triangles, squares and rectangles. I started searching online then realized that I could just create my own! So I created this and made it for her. I made two for me though. 

Angela requested half log cabins, or log cabin quarters, can never remember the name.I LOVE her choice of fabric and had fun putting them together. She is making this quilt for her niece for Christmas. I know she will love it! I think I might make a quilt with this block and in different colors. I am really into the color wheel right now. 

So there complete! Well for the month of July....although Angela's are due in August. She was just REALLY on the ball and got them out fast. I did however get two more packages in the mail yesterday for the Round Robing bee, although those can wait until next month! 

Next week challenge: 
I think my goals it get caught up on all of my quilt along....ie Summer Star sampler, Summer quilt, and Beginner sampler quilt. 

*****I started from the very beginning making my own blocks for the bees and just have fallen out of the habit and I am not really wanting to make them up. SO I have a few blocks of different sizes and colors. I don't really know what to do with them. Any suggestions? I was thinking that I could make tiny wall hangings or just combine them all in one quilt, although it will be rather ugly. So I need some help with that!******

great blocks, I have no idea what to do with them all though, maybe group them with like colors and make some table runners, or a long all hanging for a hallway or something!! Good luck with that part!

Oh Crystal. I love my little blocks. They are just so beautiful. I'am so excited. I love the "springy" fabric you used in my blocks. Thank you so much. I will also be making blocks for you, my dear. You quilt is so pretty, and the other blocks are nice too. My goodness. You surely got a lot finished. Thank you again.
Happy Quilting!
