WIP Wednesday Bee blocks and Flimsies

I have been reading the posts about where have all the blogs gone. Rachel from Stitched in Color wrote a post and Sarah from Confessions of a Fabric Addict wrote a response. I just want to say I read blogs everyday. I do not always comment which is my bad, but I always enjoy them. I opened an Instagram account but I am not sure I will use it. I like a slower pace, I don't always need instant gratification, sometimes I can wait. Also technology frustrates me no end until I get the hang of it. That's why I don't always comment on posts, I have to sign in every time, grr.

I am so pleased, my June, July and August bee blocks are made and in the mail. Still working on July, something about the herringbone block, I keep putting it off. They are started!
June - Garden Gate
July Herringbone
August Delectable Mountain

And the quilt tops! It was such a beautiful day I thought I would bring them out for pictures.
 MyKaffee Fassett all from scraps! Love it! It will be a wedding present. I have bought a border to make it a bit bigger.
 Plus Quilt. This is a tutorial from Simple Simon and Co. Super easy and very fast. They have a great blog which I have just found. Love new blogs!
 Abacus Quilt. This is huge at 70 x 88.
And my Shortcake Quilt from Cluck Cluck Sew, also a blog I follow and enjoy thoroughly.

It has been a fun summer so far with family and friends, gardens and canning, cooking and eating. Makes it hard to squish in the quilting. I will have to get these quilts finished up sometime....soon.


  1. Good morning! You and I have the same philosophy ...I read a lot of blogs and have little interest in pinterest...seems very complicated to me and the last thing I need is another social media thingy to keep up with. I love your quilts - especiallymthe Kaffe one and the Shortcake one. :)

  2. I love reading blogs, playing Words With Friends, checking email -- but at some point I need to stop playing around with technology and get back to quilting. I blog a couple of times a week and when I link up with linky parties I almost always visit several of the other bloggers that post also. You've got a lot of inspiration in this great blog!

  3. Wow, you're a busy gal. There's no wonder you don't spend lots of time on social media/blogs. I probably waste way too much time, but I love writing my blog and there are so many great blogs out there! It's difficult to choose just a few and walk away. I try to comment on the ones I get to, but that takes time and I end up not being able to visit very many. Your blocks and tops are lovely! That cross quilt top is striking!
