WIP Wednesday 4/4/12

I am so excited I finished Megan's block for the cocorico bee!!! I love it so much. Her theme for March (yup, I'm a little late) was The County Fair. I thought of a canning contest.

The jar lids look a bit bigger than I pictured but the rest I am so happy with, the banner came out exactly how I wanted it to.

I love this bee! I have to put my thinking cap on every month. It makes me step outside of my box. All of the blocks from the other ladies in the bee are always fantastic. I feel privileged to be in such good company!

I finished another hexie flower. Love them.

And when I should have been working on my quilty Granny Squares. I started CROCHETING Granny Squares. Crafting ADD at it's finest, I tell ya!

But according to my big list I've finished quite a few things. This week it was a birdie quilt and the twins.

Still working on my hand pieced blocks, Granny Squares, and have several tops in need of quilting.

That's it for this week.

Linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.

I am SO ADDICTED to your blog and your block looks fantastic as usual!!! I get so excited when I see another email from "Why Not Sew"......THANK YOU for all your creativeness, art and things you share. It has helped me so much get inspiration to do things myself. The little bird quilts just stole my heart right away....they are just awesome, so sweet.
