Is it Monday already?

I usually post on Sundays,
but yesterday I played hooky and went to the
beach with the kid.
We had a beautiful day with her friends.

But, I have been sewing this past week,
I put together my NYC Modern bee blocks.
I love them!
Now I'm fiddling with border ideas
because I want it just a bit bigger.

I also join the whites-lights challenge over at 15 min play.
I am quickly finding out that my whites-lights
have more color in them than maybe someone else would choose.
It's fun to see what you and others think as light.

Most of the fabric in my stash is bright and vibrant!
I love color!  The richer the better.

So here are my first four white-light blocks.
For me, these are really light,
but for others, this is a lot of color.
I'm not sure where this challenge is going,
but that's the fun of it right?
I am going to relax, go with the flow,
and see where we end up!

I also did some bee blocks for Nicole.

This is going to be such a striking quilt,
can't wait to see it all done!

And lastly,
It is the end of summer . . . 

Enjoy these last few days of sunshine and warmth!
Time to find the jackets . . . 


  1. I love everything about your post today! Would love to hear the story behind those striking red/white/yellow blocks? Cool weather's coming - my purple aster is starting to bloom!

  2. Love your NYC Modern bee blocks. And you are certainly correct in saying your lights are not very white but it WILL be interesting to see where they end up.

  3. Your bee blocks are fabulous... going to have some snazzy quilt... and you're right -- don't leave it small!

  4. Wonderful modern bee blocks! I have the same problem, whites just don't come to my house, your light blocks are lovely. Love the orange, gold and white, very bold.

  5. OOOH! Your triangle Galore blocks look fabulous! It's been interesting with the whites, right? I love seeing that so many people don't have lights/whites...The market is so saturated with them, you really have to pick carefully! ;-) Always something to learn... SEE YOU SATURDAY!!! I have a big hug for you!
