Block for Beki

Here's my first block for the twelve by twelve quilting bee (check out the cool new space designed by Tracy!) The block is for arsty crafty babe who requested stripes. I hope she likes it (beki - you can remove the buttons if you'd like. they'll probably be a pain come quilting time).

Beki sent the Amy Butler flowers and coordinating pumpkin-colored fabrics and I pulled the blues from my stash. I adore the fabric she picked and can't wait to see the finished quilt!

And don't mind me. I'll just keep quilting away over here, ignoring the seemingly cataclysmic collapse of the global economy around me.

Lah-dee-lah-dee-lah...

Love the use of solids in the block and the blues add a nice contrast to the orange. Wonder what you will get next?

ha ha...i had to laugh out loud at the last part about the economy.

eek! it's ugly out there isn't it? whenever i see the words "Dow Jones" I just shut my eyes real quick---i don't want to see that!

oh and...the block is adorable!

Beautiful! Makes me wish I could sew - I don't even do buttons, my poor husband. I saw your link on SouleMama - nice blog!
