Let's Bee Social #34

Welcome to this week's Let's Bee Social!  I have happy mail to share!

How fitting that I published my first weekly post for the Top 10 Tips for New Quilters.  This week's subject was Fabric & Thread.  And this came in the mail from Fabric Spot the same day!

These are 3 yards of Small Dots in Grey and 2 yards of Small Dots in Aqua, both by Riley Blake Designs.  Also, 3 yards of Mixed Bag Houndstooth in Sprouts by Moda.

Today I ordered my Widescreen Crosshatch in Pacific through Mad About Patchwork.  And will be just thrilled to be able to get a hold of this wide backing so I can finish up my Giggles UP! quilt.

This top measures 84" x 96".  And I will be offering the pattern when it gets finished and photographed!

  6. Giggles UP is fantastic! It would look great in so many different colour schemes.

  7. Good morning! Yay for Wednesday! Love the Giggle UP quilt. There is something really striking about the smaller white borders in between each of the thicker color pieces. It really catches your eye. Love it! I'll have to check out the new quilter posts. I may have a few quilts under my belt but I still consider myself a beginner!

  8. I wonder how you are going to quilt it. It's looks great in those happy colours.


  9. I just love that giggles quilt. I have never used the wide backing...well I have never quilted a quilt that big before to require wide backing..haha. I am looking forward to a finish.

  10. Love the white strips in those blocks. Adds a great new design piece to a common block. Fun quilt!

  11. I absolutely adore your Giggles UP! quilt! It's so bright and colorful!

  14. What great new acquisitions! Giggles is such a bright happy quilt, it's excellent to see it again. Do you know how you're going to quilt it?

  15. I like your Giggles UP more each time I see it. Great job; happy quilt.
