My Bee Blocks Returning Home!

As I've mentioned before, I've joined two quilting bees through Flickr and January is my month for the Sew New to Me VQB! I mailed out 11 packages of fabric near the end of December and just got my first one back today, thanks to Lisa! They're both GORGEOUS, and so full of detail! Obviously I chose grey and green as the color scheme, and asked everyone to sew blocks that give their interpretation of squares and rectangles... modern, fresh, non-wonky. I'm loving what I see thus far! The little elephants are too fun!

{{If only I had a design wall to hang all of the blocks as they return... maybe I'll wait until I receive them all back and then spread them out on the kitchen floor?}}

Gorgeous colours and fabric! I fell in love with green and grey when I saw this post http://www.redpepperquilts.com/2009/11/around-block-november.html and your blocks just convince me more that this colour combo is fab!

Those turned out great!! I can't wait to see your finished quilt.

I really need to get ready for sending my fabric out for next month. I told my husband it was my top priority for this weekend!
