Well, confession time. I messed up on a Bee block. Not these. Another one (not telling you which one). And because I messed up, I was feeling kinda down on the whole VQB thing.
But then ...
I went through the fabric Katie sent me for my Beatnik Bee and things started looking up. I mean, I didn't use half of it and look what I got to work with. Gorgeous. And these blocks are going to be made into a quilt for her daughter. Which made me love these blocks even more. You see, with 2 boys, there isn't a lot of making stuff for girls around this house. And I love making stuff for girls. I am a card carrying member of the girly girl club (but I can get in the mud and up a tree like the best of the boys).
So big thanks to Katie. I am completely in love with my Bees again.
PS - This was the first time I sewed with Anna Maria Horner's voile. Not for the faint of heart. Takes a little getting used to BUT ohmygosh, is that fabric beautiful and soft. I'll be making a quilt out of it soon (and that Evening Empire Dress that I plan to wear EVERYWHERE).
