Lovely lovely post

This morning (well, lunchtime really - Royal Mail has lets its standards slip) there was a knock at my front door.  As a rule I am not known for my speediness, but when I heard that rat-a-tat, I ran downstairs as fast as my little legs would take me.

Because I knew this was coming:
...Kona solids for my Fracture mini quilt!  Charlotte has already posted the instructions for cutting the foundation papers here.  Superswot Kelly has already done hers.  Mine are ... on my list.

And also this arrived in the same parcel:
 ... yummy yummy Chicopee!

My only finish this week are my September Bumble Bee blocks.  These are modified Bento Box blocks for Moira at Kettleboiler, who asked for these blocks in fun boy fabrics for her just-turned-1 year old son:
Hmmmm the contrast doesn't show up well on this photo but in the flesh they are really quite funky!  I wish I had had some extra orange to do those 3rd corners with.  But I'm sure they will look at home with all of the other Bee ladies' blocks.

I have been plugging away at my daughter's Dolce quilt and have nearly all of the 36 blocks done so with another hour or so I should be able to get a picture of it all laid out very soon.

  1. eeeeep!!! No wonder you ran down the stairs! Nice purchases ;-)

  2. That is a gorgeous bundle of post, that Chicopee is very yummy!
    I love those bug bento box blocks! (Bet I can't say that after a glass of wine!)

  3. Oh nice fabric haul! I may have finished the templates but my bee blocks are still half done as I am a dumb ass and ran out of fabric ;-)

  4. Lovely post! Your Bento Box block looks great, I <3 that bug fabric!

  5. Don't you just love those deliveries?
