Fresh Modern Bee 2 - My turn

I can't believe that it's my turn already on the Fresh Modern Bee 2. I joined last year in September and have had a blast making blocks for the other members.
I do still have to complete this month's block though. Bad girl! Anyway, today I've prepared the fabrics for my month. On the spur of the moment I decided to use my stash of Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt. I actually felt quite excited at the prospect of cutting it up and sending it off to other people which is a relief! I had visions of palpitations and much tearing of hair but no it's fine! Typically I miscounted how many fabric stacks I would need so had to hastily cut another after taking this photo.
I'm asking the other bee members to make me their 'signature block'. A block that sums up their style! I will find this really hard as I don't think I have a set style yet. If you've noticed anything in things that I've made which makes them particular to me I'd love to know!!!

I've also asked them to send me their signature as a label so I can include it in the finished quilt. At this stage I'm planning to sash with grey and fill holes with Hope Valley scraps if there are any left :) I'm actually really looking forward to seeing what these talented bee members come up with!!! Final reminder about the giveaway which closes tomorrow morning!! Thanks to everyone who has entered up until now. I can't believe so many people want the chance to win :)


  1. I always wonder when I see people getting fabric packs ready to send off for bee's how they know how much fabric to include. It must make it really hard if you don't get it right?

  2. What lovely piles of fabric! Will be interesting to see how they get made up. Jxo

  3. Oooh lovely fabrics :-) I just sent my first bee month out... its soooo exciting isnt it?!!

  4. sitting in my "to do bin" and I can't wait to get started, but it will be next Monday before I get a chance ;-(


Lovely comments read with glee everyday.
