January Bee and Swap

Hi all,

I am in a Bee called “Bee in Oz”. January is Emma’s month (I can’t seem to find a blog for Emma, if you know it can you let me know?). We could do any block we wanted, using her fabrics with a splash of red.

This is my sample block. It is a Nosegay block taken from the book Material Obsession. The fabric is the Where the Wind Blows range.

This is the real block. I hope Emma likes it. I love her colours!

The other thing I am in is the Inchy Flower Swap. We actually started in December and a couple even started in November. I asked for fresh modern fabrics.

This is the first two I have received, the one on the right is my Welcome flower and the one on the left is my December flower.

This is the flower I made for my swappee for January. She requested citrus colours with a white centre. The green is a bit more citrusy in real life.

I love the black, white and red block. The block is perfect for those fabrics.

Lovely blocks, all of them. I can't believe you made a "practice" block first. You are very diligent indeed ;). Good for you. It looks like it's not an easy block to construct, it it? Now you can keep going and make yourself a quilt as you have already one block ;). Have a great weekend. Vreni x

It looks like you're in some fun swaps. I love the blocks, I always thought I'd love just one nosegay block to frame, I saw it in a mag years ago.

Looks wonderful!!! I plan to make a quilt one day with the Nosegay block. You look like you are going to have another busy productive year.
