Let's Bee Social #11

Sew Fresh QuiltsWelcome to this week's Social link up!
It's the middle of March Break and the kids are just as eager for winter to end as I am.

Seems like everyone is working some spring colours into their projects.  It is so nice to see all the beautiful things people are sharing on their blogs!

One of my bestest bloggy buddies, Paula of The Sassy Quilter, shared a really sweet treat.  She made this gorgeous quilt top by joining in my Oblongagonalong!  The instructions can be found here.

Paula of The Sassy Quilter used fabrics from the Cuzco line by Kate Spain

I finished my first granny squares quilt last week.
And shared a Granny Square Quilt Tutorial yesterday.
If you are feeling inspired... I would love to see you "Gettin' your Granny on!"

My Charley Harper fabric has been cut in preparation for making a quilted jacket during the 30/30 challenge hosted by Sarah of Berry Barn Designs.  Sure looking forward to starting the piecing!

Thank you ALL for your overwhelming support of the Let's Bee Social!

  8. Good luck with your jacket! I've never tried quilted clothing...

  10. Thanks for sharing the quilt by Paula - very pretty. I love your fabric choices for the jacket - it looks like it will be wonderful! Most of all Thanks Lorna for hosting this party every week. It is my mid-week motivation to get an update out.

  11. Paula's quilt IS Sweet! love it. I can't wait to see your jacket Lorna!

  12. Hi Lorna, Glad I found you and your linky. I LOVE your fox and racoon pattern on the sidebar. So cute! I'll be back again!

  13. Thanks for the granny square tutorials! Very timely for me!

  14. I've just found your blog, and love it! Thanks for allowing me to show off my work!

  15. I did notice the thumbnails :) Looking forward to seeing that jacket start to come together!

  16. Your blog party ROCKS, Lorna! Thanks for leading by example as you hop around in blogland leaving lovely comments everywhere you go. Bee proud of your efforts!

  17. Love your fabric choices for the jacket! I have some of those in the same color choices! I've linked up to your blog party... so many wonderful quilters out there sharing their work! It takes time to see them all but I'll do my best! Thank you for hosting!!

  18. Thanks for hosting the link up. I love your jacket and think you're so brave to make it. I might sew little, tiny squares together, but clothing scares me. Maybe it was bad memories of home ec, in school, where I made wrap around skirt, which came off, when I stood up in class......I haven't sewed a single piece of clothing since.


Your kind comments certainly make my day!
