The Traveling Quilts Bee - Round 5

July 30th, 2012

Round 5 of the Traveling Quilts Bee has made it’s way to my house. I now have Amber’s beautiful QIP (quilt in progress). I wanted to carry on in a sewing theme after seeing Elizabeth’s beautiful ruler addition.

So one night at sewing circle (aka Yam time) while I was sewing on Amber’s QIP, a bee flew up my bum and I thought about adding something extra, extra special to Amber’s QIP. So I jumped on to some aerial photography equipment…

… and added a beautiful Yam border!

My fo’realsies addition to Amber’s QIP includes a pieced spool (from Camille’s pattern)…

… and some appliqued “thread”.  I was just about ready to pack it all up and send it off to Dan

… when suddenly there was an angry commotion amongst the staff.  And there were threats.  Turns out I wasn’t the only one who didn’t want to see this get quilt-top get sent on.

It was going to take some serious scheming and warfare to get past these guys.

Luckily I had help… but there was either a casualty or some narcolepsy.

Order was soon restored by the IT guy - the office/sewing room bad-ass. Amber’s QIP is now safely on it’s way to Dan. And by on it’s way I mean that it’s on my dinner table waiting to go to the post office tomorrow.  Ish.

    Ok, Ok, I get it. You’re busy with other quilts. That’s all fine and dandy, but why haven’t you posted your gnomes in Sisters???? What.the.hay?? :) I barely got to see it before the rain came down and they took all the quilts down. It sure was fun seeing a familiar creation among all the others. :) It was definitely the cutest one there. :) heehee

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