Beeing late

I've managed to catch up with a few of my bee blocks in the last week. These four log cabins are for Rosa's November block for Scrappy? Sew Bee It. Her quilt is going to be so, so awesome (inspired by Rita of RPQ). These ladies choose the best bee blocks - I would love to make one of these for myself eventually. Rosa asked for bright solid centres surrounded by various low volume fabrics (of which I had more than I thought!)
And this one is Deborah's block for December - a 36 patch following the great tutorial at crazy mom quilts. Having seen the other blocks Deb's quilt is going to be seriously gorgeous. Another one I'd love to make a whole quilt out of (so quick and easy - thanks Deb!!)
I'm now nearly up to date (sorry Lu, they are coming!) which is quite amazing - although since I haven't started thinking about January's yet I may not be caught up for long... I'll be back tomorrow to announce the QAL winners! xx Jess

Gorgeous! That low volume one is a stunner. It's very close to what I was thinking of for the bee group I'm in. Love it.

Fabulous blocks!! Don't hurry with mine, after all I'm still waiting on the baby so it'll be a while before I make the top ;)

Your blocks look great, Jess. I can't believe what great quilt ideas everyone comes up with. Every month I think 'I'll choose that when I'm queen bee'. I'll have to join lots of bees!
