This time, I was excited to get to work on Jacquie's quilt, which arrived at my house looking like this.
This is the addition that I made for Faith's Traveling Quilt. I didn't measure it before I packed it up, but I believe it's about 17" x 24".
I've been lucky enough to participate in The Traveling Quilts bee/round-robin, which is a year-long quilting adventure where each participant starts a quilt then sends it along to the next person (and then the next, and the next after that, etc.) to work on. The last person to get each quilt will finish it for the original quilter.
Unlike a conventional bee or round-robin, where everyone makes roughly the same kind of thing or the same kind of shape, this bee is completely open-ended. Participants are simply inspired by what they get and add stuff accordingly. It is A LOT of fun!
Remember when I posted this? At the time, the rules for this bee/round-robin were that we couldn't share photos of what we were working on. Since then, curiosity has proven to be too much for us all and the rules have been relaxed, which means that I can share some photos. Yay!
This is Amber's quilt so far. Before I received it, here's what happened: Amber made the blocks on the top and bottom left. Then she sent them to Alissa, who made the block in the middle of the left and sewed everything together with some Essex cotton/linen. What I received in the mail was basically the left half of what you see in the photo above.
I'm participating in a great round robin/bee that requires me to start a quilt and then send it along to another quilter. It will get passed around the group during the next year and come back to me as a finished quilt.
I'm excited to have finished my first ever bee quilt. The blocks in this quilt were made by the members of the Bee-autiful Quilting Bee back in February. I can't thank you all enough for making me such fabulous blocks!
