Where Ya Been?!

Interesting that my last post was a travel pillow finish as I have made five more trips since then!  Throw in a couple of bouts with the common cold and I wonder why I am so tired ;-))

There is so much to get caught up on here on the blog.  I have been making bee blocks, finished a small project or two, took a knitting class, made an "appearance" on a podcast, started our guild's newsletter, received some quilty gifts, bought cool fabric, and oh took a class with Gwen Marston!

Today I'll share the Mid Century Modern bee blocks made through April.  January's block was for Elizabeth, and I showed a sneak peek here.  The quilt top is still a secret.

Cindy asked for Books for Baby blocks from Ayumi's Patchwork Please! book for her sweet granddaughter.  One block made for MCM and one block for the Sew Sisters Bee.

Linda requested tiny churn dash blocks with a few Gwen Marston influences.  Perfect to make right after my class with Gwen.  Love these!

Stephanie is making a quilt to raise money for the Kalamazoo Academy of Rock and sent a palette of Paintbrush Studios solids to create a 12.5 x 18.5 HST block.  Gorgeous colors.

That's it for now.  I hope everyone has been doing well.  I have missed you.
Thanks for stopping by,


  1. I've missed you blogposts Rene! Love all your bee blocks, but I'm glad I didn't have to make for Stephanie- I wouldn't know where I'd lay my hands on those gorgeous solids??

  2. You've been very busy! I hope you recover soon. Having fun is tiring, isn't it? hee hee!

    I love all your Bee blocks! The books are really cute, as are the churn dash blocks! The big block for the KAR is beautiful - love the colors. I used to live right next to Kalamazoo!

  3. I really love the HST block - the colors are beautiful. And can I just say how much I love the guild newsletter. It's fantastic and I look forward to reading it each month!

  4. Nice to have you blogging again. I alway loved the churn dash block, yours are so cute n solids.

  5. Love your colors in the churn dash blocks.
