November Quilting Bee Round-Up

This weekend I also got caught up on my quilting bees. This month, alexdk sent out Christmas fabrics for the Traveling Threads bee and asked for either wonky houses or log cabin style blocks. I've been wanting to do a wonky house and REALLY wanting to do wonky trees (check out the ones I got from RuthieQuilts) so I free-pieced this block (12.5" square):

Gretchen from Snip.Sew.Send is working on a "Jewel Squares" quilt and wanted blocks that are 2”, 3.5”, 6.5” and 9.5”. I love the fabric she sent and these little blocks are really addicting. The pictures don't really do the colors justice (it's been cloudy all weekend), but  I think this quilt will be spectacular! Here are the blocks I made (6.5" and 9.5"):

I'm also plugging along with the Sew Kid at Heart bee. I'm hoping that I can have most (if not all) of the blocks done in January before the next semester starts. This weekend I made these string blocks for a quilt Leslie (aka TwentyEighthStreet) is making for her son. The colors are really great.
