Bee Spendid in July

This is the first month of the Bee Splendid block bee.  I got a slow start because I had to go on hoo ;]  and we had our mail held up.  So we returned 3 days before having to go back to work, but they then an observed mail holiday on Monday, duh-op!  So finally on Tuesday my squishy packaged arrived.  I was so excited (and exhaust from my first day back from work)...that I had to go to bed, lol.  So ok 2 days later I'm done!

Sarah has sent us some yummy brights and a pattern with a twist on the Jacob's ladder traditional block.  I added some goodies of my own and voila, my first one done!


and my second block.  I just love the little gray flowers, so yeah I had to add some gray and RED!!! from my stash. 

These blocks were quick and fun.  Karrie Lyne aka mama Bee has some great ideas for layout of these blocks too.  Can't wait to see the rest of the blocks for Sarah and her final finished top.

Happy Quilting!
