Here are the x&+ blocks that I have done so far:
These bee blocks are finally turning out the right size b/c I have FINALLY figured out the scant quarter inch seam! Am I the last person on the planet to figure that out? No wonder all of my blocks have always been smaller than they were supposed to be! So relieved to catch on finally! ;)
I think this one should be an homage to the Centers for Disease Control, don't you? ;) hehe
Playing in my scraps for these blocks has been fun, but also mind blowing b/c I don't know HOW they multiply so fast.. they are so out of control right now..
It's driving me a little crazy, and ever since I made some crumb fabric for the bird on my MIL's "The Bird" quilt, I have been dying to make some more, so that's what I did this afternoon for about a half hour. So fun! Definitely will be doing more of this. I'm envisioning a quilt called "Taking Out the Trash". Not trying to match or anything.. just grab and sew.
The time is getting closer for the Make it Right Challenge projects to go up on the Art Gallery Fabrics Pinterest boards. If you're as excited as I am about seeing all of the projects, be sure you are following Art Gallery Fabrics on Pinterest. You can follow them by clicking HERE. I caved the other day and posted a pic of my project on FB and Twitter if you want to see how it turned out. I have only shown little peeks on the blog but you can see the whole thing there. But I will still wait to post the photos here until the contest goes live on June 7th.
Let's see..other randomness.. KG end of year program was last night.. I got emotional but didn't want to be the crazy bawling mom in the second row so choked back my tears the whole time and then ended up with a headache b/c of it. Maybe I should have just let the dam burst!
You see, when I signed the consent form for chemo as a 19 year old, they told me the poss. side effects one of which was that I may never have kids..but that if they didn't treat me, I wouldn't be around to find out if I would or not. So when I see him in moments like this, my heart overflows, and it all threatens to spill out of my eyeballs in the form of happy tears. Joy. Kindergarten went by so fast!!
Gonna link up with Really Random Thursday as this post is actually kind of random, and TGIFF, as I have finished my bee blocks for May! And Mod GeoCruiser (see FB or Twitter). But I'll be posting all about it on June 7th. Oh, I'll be in Nashville, TN on June 7th. Another random fact. Visiting my bro and SIL and their new family member, Maude the Old English Sheepdog. We are very excited to play with this big ball of fluff.
Thanks for dropping in to visit! Happy Thursday and if it's almost the weekend where you live, have a great weekend!

Kelli, first...congrats to you and your son and hubby on his KG graduation! That is so exciting. His first big accomplishment in school~!
I LOVE your X blocks and esp those fabrics! Really a favorite of mine! ♥♥♥
I have about 60 pounds of scraps...small scraps. I have no idea what to do with them. I could never use them all up!
Your blocks are BEAUTIFUL!! And I really like the grab and sew idea for your "Take Out the Trash" quilt. FAB IDEA!! Off topic: Do you have any suggestions for me? I'm a new sewer/quilter and I'd like to upgrade from my el-cheapo Singer sewing machine to something that's a bit smoother and has a larger throat for me to do some home quilting. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
