Sunday Sewing

Inspiration comes from all sorts of places.....  from books like Freddy Moran & Gwen Marston's "Collaborate Again Quilt Designs".  Red Sticks is their version of  inserting narrow strips into blocks of fabric, and if you look closely you can see that the border is also made of the same but in v. low contrast.

....from other quilters. Our Monday Modern group made these blocks for  Megan a wee while ago, more of the same but slightly different.

.....and of course other blogs
I have been playing around with my latest little bundle of fabrics too!!! 

I added in a few extras from  my stash & the 8 1/2 " blocks came together v. quickly & v. easily. I am having fun combining different colours and the addition of solid fabrics is quite a nice change. 
I need to do lots more blocks to make it up to a reasonable size, so it's a work in progress. Nothing too tricky for over the Xmas season!!!

Oh I love your version! I laid all my bee blocks out yesterday to try and decide on a final arrangement.

Linda, there doesn't seem to be a way to follow your blog , maybe you can ask your daughter to have a look at your settings.

Well that was a bit tricky!!! but I think i've added it. All thou' how people now "follow" is beyond me!!!! I just have a whole pile of links in my 'favourites" colum & do it that way.
Am enjoying playing around on computer - it's a great timewaster ! Linda
