Wonky Bee, Traveling Edition

I have lots to say about Quiltcon, but I'm still processing some things. I hope to share my thoughts in the next few days. I'm embarrassed to say that I took very few pictures. I have a few from my cell phone, at least. Luckily, there are lots of people that were better than I. It was a really wonderful experience.

Today, I wanted to show some progress on round three of the Wonky Bee. As you may remember, this is a traveling round. Along with basic guidelines or desires, you send a stack of fabric and a starter block(s) to the next person. It's been lots of fun so far! We are working on our third rotation.

Nicke's traveling quilt

I received Nicke's quilt first. Her block is on the top; I added two blocks below, and of course, some Dear Stella stars. I loved the embroidery, especially!

Wonky bee: Melissa's quilt

Melissa's quilt was next. Her project consists of (mostly) gradient strips at varying widths.

First word

I just finished my first word for Jessica's quilt. I just love the scrappy neutral look. I hope to make another word, and assemble some of the blocks (since we're past the halfway point).

Wonky Bee Round 3

You may remember this stack of fabrics, which I selected for my quilt.

The start of my quilt

I started with these blocks, and both Sara and Amanda have added some fun things!

I'm excited to see how this quilt turns out!


  1. So many pretty blocks! I really like your "Give" with the variety of neutrals and funky piecing at the bottom.

    BTW, I wish I had had more time to talk with you and Chawne, especially post Saturday lectures. So much I would have loved to hear spoken about!

  2. Really nice blocks! The last picture 2 color star on red base is stunning!

  3. Wow, there's so much to see here. Of course I love all the improv goodness. But I have to tell you -- I'm really digging your fabric selections (always) but especially lately. So cool, just like you!! :)

  4. Oooohhh, that 'Give' is very cool!

  5. Do you happen to know what pattern Sara used? I'd love to make a similar block. Thanks!

  6. i love this round so much! i have sara's fabric on my sewing table. im trying to get inspiration! i better troll pinterest for a minute! ;) xoxo
