A quilting bee and a new friend!

SO....I'd like to host a virtual quilting bee. That means I need 9 more people to join in. I've got Victoria of Bumblebeans interested and my new friend Heather--a local blogger and artist that I got to meet and see her art space today(so cool!) plus myself.

If you think you can handle making ONE quilt block a month, following the requests and using the fabric of another quilter, you could be the lucky recipient of 12(really 11 plus the one you make for yourself) beautifully made quilt blocks-- enough to sash or border and have a really cool quilt top.

So if you're in, leave a comment in this post, making sure I can contact you. I think we should have giveaways and fun stuff like that too!

Starting Now!!
Great idea! If you leave a comment in this post, you'll be entered to win a jar of my Nitty Gritty Gardener's Salt Scrub! It rocks--peppermint and rosemary and lavender! I'll leave the giveaway open until July 15. You don't have to be interested in the quilting bee to enter, but I do need to know one way or another

I'm ready to quilt this disappearing nine patch for my sister. I'd planned on having it done by the 4th, but who was I kidding? I really like it and did some piecing on the back that's a bit odd, but works. I should really learn when to take pictures--colors aren't remotely right.

And this wonderful package arrived in the mail today, so I'd better not like these books as much a Vanessa at V & Co., or I'm never going to quilt it!

Still space at the quilting retreat with Amanda Jean in November!!!
