I belong to a virtual quilting bee, The Bees Knees, a Quilting Bee.
The ladies in the group are wonderful, although I haven't met any of them in person, yet :)
The month of August was Kim Walus' month to send out a block for us to sew.
She also sent extra fabric as a gift for us to make a block for ourselves.
Kim even asked us which one was our favorite color.
As you can see, I chose mint green :)
The block was paper pieced, but very easy to sew.
Here's the block I made for Kim, she sent all the fabric already cut.
The one on the left is mine, but I like the dark color Kim sent for the spool, better.
I'm always limited to the variety in my stash, lol!
I copied Melissa McCrory and made a mini to hang on my wall.
The free pattern can be found here.
It's by Konda Luckau, she has a lot of cute ideas for the block.
