half of 2013 is already gone...

i feel like all my sewing time is going toward bee blocks. and it is. i'm in 4 bees until september.   i also started 2 quiltalongs earlier in the year (which for the time being i have abandoned.)  i have overextended myself a little bit. i love being in bees but 4 at a time is too much for me. i don't have any time to work on any other projects. so lesson learned. and enough bitching.
these are the bee blocks for june so far. i plan on more sewing today so there may be more later:)

linking up with lily's quilts - fresh sewing day

Lily's Quilts

i didn't make any q2 goals for the finish-a-long at she can quilt, but i do plan on some for q3 (i like the linky starts on july 8th)

i am a member of the cheer circle of do. Good stitches and my quilting month is september.  i've been contemplating my design since march 27th (the day rachel sent me the email.)  i really want to use the freewheeling block by tacha bruecher from 99 modern blocks.  my thought is that the correct and courteous way to do this is to ask her.  her website (blog) is not working right now. is it inappropriate to ask her on twitter?

my first finished quilt!!

i finished my first non-mini quilt today! it's the first quilt that i pieced and quilted myself.  it was always meant to be a quilt to donate to charity, i just wasn't sure which one.  then a little while ago i was perusing flickr, i came across this

OKC Modern Quilt Guild

the oklahoma city modern quilt guild is collecting quilts and raising money to help the victims of the tornados that hit oklahoma recently.

i'm so happy that this quilt will be going to a new home soon!

happy sewing!
