Let’s Bee Social #15

Posted on: April 9th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to this week’s Social linky party!

I am happy to report that spring has finally arrived here at our little spot on the map!
        It is muddy and mucky.
              There is still some snow on the ground.
                    And the wood stove is still in use.

BUT, there are birds.  And blue skies.  And the sun. 

I started a new project this weekend.
You can read more about it here.

This is a Kansas Dugout block.  With those dreaded Y seams.
Want to learn my secrets for easy piecing?
Tutorial coming later this week…

Sew Fresh Quilts
NOW…. What’s new with you?
I am sew looking forward to visiting with you all!
Really.  I am so blessed to have you each as my friend.

So…. Show me what you got!
And Let’s Bee Social!

Keep On Quilting On!

    Lovely Kansas Dugout block; it's such fun with the animals in the middle. I'd really like to know how you do that without \”Y\” seams, so I hope to be reading all about it soon.
