Let’s Bee Social #74

Posted on: May 27th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon
Squirrels in the Park – more to come on Friday

Although I did get sidetracked while making progress on the Squirrels in the Park baby quilt… I got all caught up this weekend on the Hillside Houses quilt along by Cristina of Pretty Little Quilts. I hope you are not getting tired of seeing my progress on this….

More Hillside Houses….

I had completed the 3 blocks needed for the first row.

On Saturday I chose my fabric pull for blocks 4 & 5…..

And then I chose my fabric for blocks 6 & 7…..

I cut out all the pieces and placed them with the instructions for each block. Then Aunt Elna and I sewed, and sewed, and sewed the day away. Okay, so near the end there was a little seam ripper action, too. I was getting fatigued.

But we finished them all!

Block 4
Block 5
Block 6
Block 7

Now Let’s PARTY!!!!
What’s new with you?

What is the Let’s Bee Social???  You can read the details here.

Keep On Quilting On!
