Jane´s Block

Today i have finished Jane´s Block - using 30´s fabrics! I have never used them before ... Jane has sent me some really nice fabrics in the beginning of this journey - and I was keeping all the time till I can use them!
There were so nice blocks already made by some of you (others will follow:) it was not easy to decide what to do ... I went along with a 8" paperpieced block with a little white border and all around some girly pink - lol
The start - one of four sections:

I really love it - bright, cheerful and a little girly,girly!!!
There are all Jane´s fabrics plus a little white from my stash and some little scraps I have received in my DQ9 swap package sended by smoochee (Leah) - perfect!
All together - this quilt will be so wonderful!!!
Thank you Jane for the experience with these fabrics! It will be definitly not my last ....

Bee Block for Victoria

Victoria of London, England asked for this versatile framed block with a six inch center.  She asked for applique or other embellishment, if we wished. 

I appliqued a sewing machine and tiny quilt in the center to symbolize this bee that has brought us together as friends.  Each one of the fabrics in the frame is a fabric that I have used in other blocks for this bee.  This gives Victoria's quilt a connection to all of the other quilts in the bee.  Her quilt is growing and is on the way to Southern California for it's next block.
I am glad these blocks went into the mail yesterday because Alex's block were waiting in the mailbox for me when I got home this afternoon!
