Holy smokes, these things are addictive!
Huzzah for the first month of the Vintage Sheet Quilting Bee, a new bee started by Jen, who is also the mastermind behind the vintage sheet swaps that are responsible for the ever-multiplying mountain of vintage sheets in my closet, as well as the Rosey Little Bee, for which I’m also tagging along (as if I didn’t already have enough UFOs to work on!). I am super excited for both bees — besides being a great way to make new bloggy friends, it’s going to be so fun to make all those different blocks without the commitment of making an entire quilt.
For the first month of the Vintage Sheet Bee, Rachel requested paper pieced string blocks, made from the odds and ends in our stashes (excellent tutorial here). I kind of wish I’d made my strips wider (most of them are 1.5 inches), but I like them the way they are. I can’t wait to see everyone else’s blocks — the end result is going to be a serious party of a quilt.
I finished the back of my monstrosity tonight, so I’m dropping it off at the long-arm quilter’s tomorrow!!! Eeee!!!
