The Traveling Quilts Bee - Round 4

May 13th, 2012

Round 4 of the Traveling Quilts Bee has again made it’s way to my house. I now have Alissa’s quilt-in-progress with the addition’s of Elizabeth’s quilt-werks and Heather’s quilt-werks. The QIP started with Alissa’s center block, which Elizabeth built around it, Heather built on to the right side, and then I added to the top and left side (if you view the photo in Flickr, you can mouse over the photo and internetgalaticamagicly see who did what).

Bottom right is Alissa’s “starter block”.

I crazy love the citron-ish yellow (Art Gallery’s “Empire Yellow”) solid Alissa added to her traveling bundle, especially with all the greys.   Mad love.  I see a shopping trip to Fat Quarter Shop in my very near future.

I turned some of the fabrics around - it’s like getting a bonus fabric. The little Echino in the center is a scrap that started at Ashley’s house, then went to Elizabeth’s house, and then came to my house… I just HAD to use it. At some point it’ll go back to Ashley house once the Alissa’s QIP makes it’s way there. I wonder if the fabric will recognize her? Mommy, Mommy… is that really you?

I had so much fun making my addition, and each little log cabin was a different treat. Elizabeth had a great idea that I attach my lil’ loggies in the same manner as I did her QIP and Heather’s QIP.  I liked her idea, and maybe the L7 is now my new thing. The fun thing is not knowing what I’m going to do for the next person until I get that person’s QIP.

This bee is the ultimate in creative challenges and so much fun. Most fun I’ve ever had on a quilting project/group adventure. And speaking of fun… I’m DYING over Penny’s addition on my QIP!

    Love the fresh, fun look of this! And it’s all the more special because it’s a collaboration among quilty friends, eh? BTW, as an English teacher (retired, thank goodness), I adore your writing style. You let your personality shine right through, which most people find hard to do. Bravo! Your blog is a pleasure to read.

    Dan brought this to the East Bay Modern Quilt Guild meeting. It is so fabulously
    understated. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!



Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
