Things are really buzzin' at the hive. So much going on...
It's nice to take a break. Sit down with a cup o'coffee.
And buzz around from one blog to the next and see what you are buzzy working on!
The finished ZebraZ quilt and pattern release were blogged about this past Friday. And my completed Zany ZebraZ baby quilt, using the cheater blocks, will be posted later this week. Check out the Zany ZebraZ made by Sandy of Upstairs Hobby Room. Her posts on instagram are such a pleasure to see! You can follow Sandy on IG here.
In spite of a small glitch along the way, the FREE quilt along Elephant Parade is going strong! This week's instructions for sashing, borders and backing were posted on Sunday. And next Sunday will be the last week of instructions before the Linky Party opens! It has been so much fun to see everyone's progress each week. And all of the different ideas people have had for making this quilt uniquely their own.
Please note that I really appreciate the outpouring of support and quilty love shown in the comments, direct messages on instagram and personal emails sent to encourage and uplift me. Your kind words are so very appreciated.
And I hold absolutely no ill will toward Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet for addressing the issue of the tulip block being so similar to her Tulip block from her Quilty Fun book. She was encouraged to do so by her publishers who also hold copyright to that Tulip block. I have removed my tulip block from the Elephant Parade quilt along and from the pdf pattern because I was nervous about appearing as though I had stolen her block. That is the last thing I would want people think of me.
If you have been quilting along on the Elephant Parade, do not feel as though you cannot use that tulip block in your quilt. That is not an issue. For those that haven't made the flower blocks yet, you will now find the instructions for the two blue flowers to be made exactly as the single red flower.
After I wrote this post, I went back to check my instagram and seen Lori had replied to my message. She certainly was kind about it. Really. She seen my previous posting on instagram about her up and coming book Farm Girl Vintage and asked if I would like to be a host blogger in promoting her new book this summer in a sew along. Of course this can only be a good thing. Us farm girls 'otta stick together! It really is all working out for the best! Quilty hugs all around!
Especially for those of you who are no reply bloggers, I wanted to make sure you know how much I appreciate that you took the time to comment and show you care. Thanks for your support and encouragement! It means more than you know!
