Emma asked for blocks of our choice, with the only stipulation being that they "read" as yellow. I love love love this style of block, and I've done it a few times over the course of my two bee's. I can't wait to see this quilt come together, its going to be lovely and bright and sunshiney!

I'm still here!

Kitchen Window Quilt
Kitchen Window Quilt from Elizabeth Hartman's "Practical Guide to Patchwork"

Blocks made by the awesome girls in Bee Seam Piecing Down Under!!
frames are Kona Charcoal and sashing is Kona Ash, fabrics include AMH Good Folks, Meadowsweet, Kaffe and Prints Charming, There is still another identical quilt coming together as well, the backing for this one is under construction and I plan to quilt it with an all-over stipple. 

In other news, My course has pretty much come to a standstill talk about over my head! I'm now looking for work instead. There has been quite a bit of hand sewing happening but I haven't taken pictures yet. I've also been spending a fair bit of time volunteering at our school's canteen, which I absolutely love! All the girls are doing really well, growing bigger and bigger all the time.
 I hope to get back into blogging regularly again now that I've sorted out some big life decisions (study vs work).
I hope everyone out there reading this post is doing well, and getting in plenty of sewing time :-)
