Busy Little Bee

I've been busy girl catching up on my bee, swap, and a project for my sister! First up are my 2 blocks for the do.Good Stitches {a Charity Bee}:

This month our theme is blue and green slightly wonky squares within squares for a boy. I used all sorts of lovely scraps of this and that for these blocks and incorporated some solids because I love them. The apples were appliqued on my center square to tie in to another block someone else made. I figure there should be a hint of continuity even though each block will be a little different.

Next up are my first couple of hints for my scrap partner from my Scrappy Pincushion Swap:
Can you guess what it is?? I used some red wool felt scraps and a bit of Red Letter Day Pearl Bracelet in aqua for this beauty. Oh and guess what else? I stuffed it with BATTING SCRAPS! I hope my partner lurrrrrves it!

I am also doing the Modern Swappers swap because I couldn't resist. We haven't been given our hints yet about who are partner is so I haven't started anything but I'm really looking forward to it!

Last but not least, I made some burp cloths and bibs for my sister to give to her sister in law Dana:
I used some of my favorite Amy Butler Love prints on the front and nubby minky on the back of the bibs. For the burp cloths I used the same Amy Butler Love prints on cloth diapers. I threw away the package a long time ago but I think they were Gerber tri-folds from Target.

I also made a dress for myself to wear to the Sully Quilt show last Saturday but I don't have pictures yet. I will post some up here if I don't look too horrible in them...

Happy Sewing!

Cutest bibs and burp cloths ever!

Love the quilt squares too - I'm loving apples on everything and I think that's just the season sneaking up on me without me noticing. ;)

Your pincushion looks like...a bird? thing....umm... I don't know. But I'm betting it's cute.
