Let’s Bee Social #60

Posted on: February 18th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Awww….  Sweet and simple.  That’s what I needed this week.  Some sweet pinks and some simple piecing.

42″ x 48″ pink baby girl crib quilt

Things around here have been somewhat stressful due to the intense weather conditions and I just needed to sit down and sew!  Ahhh….  Therapeutic patchwork….

I dug into my stash of 3.5″ patchwork squares, cut previously and stored in a little bin on my shelf, just waiting for such an occasion.

And arranged them on my design wall in a 42″ x 48″ finished layout.  Then I was able to melt the stress away by sitting and peacefully piecing.

Soothing sweet fabric patches….  Just what the doctor ordered.

That’s better.  Got my fabric fix!

NOW…. Let’s PARTY!!!!
What’s new with you?

    That is a lovely combo Lorna. I was about to precut for frog but I ended up making something else instead 🙂

    This is so timely. I have 500 3 1/2 in square that I want to do a basic patchwork with. It is a gift. When you do something like this do you piece one row at a time or do you make blocks and sew those together? I was thinking of doing four squares to a block and combining those. What is more accurate for piecing, in your opinion? Thanks Lorna!

  20. Jayne says:

    What a very sweet pink delight! I am so wanting to piece together something, but haven't been inspired yet! I hate that! The weather here is awful…Tennessee and ice do not go together ~ ever!
