The Traveling Quilts Bee - Round 6

December 10th, 2012

Round 6 of the Traveling Quilts Bee has made it’s way to my house. I received John’s beautiful QIP (quilt in progress).
The Traveling Quilts Bee - Round 6

I added my addition to the top of the QIP (photo at bottom of this post), and I had just got done flying so I was in airplane travel mode and that influenced my addition.  Plus I want to do some handwork for John.  Not so much in how the handwork looks or what it is… I just wanted to give John’s QIP a little extra lovins from something I so dearly love to do.  Why?  Because QuiltDad is my Homeboy, that’s why.

I love this bee in so many ways, and one of the reasons is because it’s assembled by creativity and not by rules. Some participants don’t add on to the QIP itself, but rather make elements for the QIP. Some of the participants have used the elements and added them on to the QIP or into their own addtion. This round I decided to use those elements and add them on vs passing them on with the QIP.  This round included some blocks by Amber and a big block by Heather.

It really hit me the community aspect of this bee as I was pressing Amber’s and Heather’s blocks. In Amber’s case - there’s an ocean between us - and yet it kinda felt like she was there as I was pressing her blocks. Weird and indescribable - but that big, fat ocean was more like a puddle all of a sudden.

I joined and set the blocks to resemble the arc I used in my addition. I hope John likes it!

John’s QIP is now on to Daniel’s house for his addition, and I can not wait to see what Daniel does next!

    Really cool. Knowing that your friends put stitches into your own quilt is very cool.

    Great quilt and cute airplane! Love how you connected with the quilter an ocean (puddle?) away while ironing her block.

    Long ago, and far away, I won a prize from a blogger who lives in Australia. She wrapped the book with a pretty lavender ribbon - I still have it to remind me of her kindness.
