Let’s Bee Social #28

Posted on: July 9th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

I’ve had this charm pack of Giggles by Me & My Sister Designs hanging around for a while now.

Working with this bright happy bit of fabric is just what I needed to perk me up.  I paired those Giggles up with some coordinating Kona cotton solids.  And some Kona Snow.

It’s been a long time since I made a full bed size quilt, so I got out the graph paper and designed something that will work out to be a large double bed size (86″ x 94″).  Here are a few of the blocks I have finished so far.

NOW…. What’s new with you?
