I got part of my fabric today for my Putting the Bee in Christmas quilt.
These Michael Miller prints are my favorites so far (I got them for $5/yard at fabricshack.com!)
Last Christmas, a friend of mine sent me this little card. When I saw it, I thought, "I want to turn this in to a quilt."
I'm thinking about having the ladies make all ornament blocks, but that idea isn't quite sitting quite right.
I'm also thinking about Dresdens like these that Sherri made last year.
But I'm not quite sure about that either.
Drunk Love...ala Denyse Schmidt also keeps crossing my mind... I worry it won't feel "Christmasy" enough.
I'm even considering some scrappy patchwork, like this here.
I have until the week of August 13 to decide. And I have some more fabric coming (the lovely Holly got me with her reminder of fabric.com's coupon code... free shipping takes a bit longer than priority though)
If I had to decide today, I'd probably go with a large ornament block in the center, with drunk love around it. Either that or Dresdens.
In other Bee news, I finished my July Bee Splendid blocks.
This month was Sarah's month, and she wanted scrappy Jacob's Ladder blocks.
She got one scrappy Jacob's Ladder,
and one "humility block."
We'll just say I did that on "purpose."
These make blocks #3 and #4 of my 60 blocks of Summer. (I'm not counting my Circle Around blocks...unless I have to)
Karrie is turning this block in to a quilt-along.
Go check it out!
