Bee PDX May June July!

Our bee has been a little derailed the past few months but we're getting back on track now. 

For May Katie had a Pacific Northwest Tree theme with anything goes for what you make.  Referencing a holiday tree I made I came up with the block. I'm excited to see how these come together because there was no size or pattern restrictions I know there will be so many different trees. Check out her Pinterest inspiration page.

My month was June and I chose the x & + block. Thank you to everyone I know it's a tricky block and I love the ones I have received, I hope to get the rest soon. The block was a little hard to pull fabric for because it's meant to be scrappy and I wanted to be sure everyone had enough fabric but I think they did. Here's the x & + quilt I made in 2012 for my children's school auction and I can't wait to have one of my own!

July was Heather and she picked an Improv Starburst block. Her fabric choices are so beautiful! I did learn a lesson when I misread the instructions and made the first block the wrong size. Heather was fine with me improvising to get the most from the remaining fabric and I think they turned out so nice. I'm sorry Heather!

I love how yours is turning out! I have to get to the next meeting so I can give everyone their blocks and hopefully see finished quilts soon!
