Quilting Bee Blocks for March.

March block for KaLily2010 ~1

This block was on my 'one day' list. Note the "was". Yep making 2 of these has cured me of the need to ever make any more. Its a lovely block, don't get me wrong, I love hst's, I really do. Its just this block, it nearly got  the best of me. Nearly. It was so much more time consuming then I could of imagined, probably 3 times the amount of time that I normally allocate. But the result I think is worth it, and I really cannot wait to see this beautiful beast put together, and at 16" per block it is going to be huge!! I was short less then an inch of yellow so the second block isn't finished. I'm sending it home to be fixed :)

These blocks were based off a quilt by Rita at Red Pepper Quilts, and requested by Nicole in Bee Seam Piecing Down Under

March blocks for Bronwyn ~1

Bronwyn from Whippet Good, requested rose blocks for her turn in the Australasian Bee. She sent out a great mix of pinks and greens, How freaking adorable is the carrot fabric?!

I managed to knock out 3 blocks, the pink is 9.5" the green is 9" and the mix is 6"

March blocks for Bronwyn ~3

I had it in my head that I wanted to do a really really small block, like 2" but In the end I couldn't get my head around it, so 6" was the smallest I could really go with this one.

Love the three blocks together, they totally match Charlotte's quilt!

In other news, Ive finished my FMF quilt!!!! I slept under it last night for the first time!! You can see a sneaky peak over here. I just need to get some decent pics and do a round up post on it.


  1. So glad you persisted with the blocks Kelly, they are gorgeous, love the fabric you have used. Your roses are beautiful I'm sure Bron will love them. You would have slept so well under your gorgeous fmf quilt!!! xo

  2. Beautiful blocks Kelly!

  3. Wow they are ALL gorgeous! I really love the hst block but boy it looks like a lot of work!!

  4. Hi Kelly-- Just wanted to say thanks for following my blog on Facebook! I couldn't find any way to post there, but wanted to get in touch. I'm following your blog there too. Your blocks are terrific!!

  5. That first block is so, so, so pretty!!! I just love the colors and all that detail...it does look like it would be a killer to make though. You did such a good job!

  6. Sooo true about that RPQ block. I'm trying to finish one now but as soon as I even look at it I suddenly get the urge to work another project. Love the rose blocks too!
