I finally finished cutting all of the 3 inch blocks to send to my bee buddies from Bee Stitched. In the end I decided on this block:
It looks a lot harder than it really is. When you break it down it is two different 4 patches turned in different directions to make the stars. I will have to cut plenty more squares if I end up deciding to do little stars in the boarders like in the inspiration quilt. Over all I have more than 65 fabrics going into this quilt. Some are in every pile and some are not. I also left it open to my bee members to swap out for some of their favorites with a few specifications. I know I can be picky but I want this one to be something I absolutely love.

So from our Flickr discussions, it appears that through all the craziness, Sarah's quilt is coming together. Just to report, it took TWO WEEKS for my little blocks to arrive only from New York City. Seriously, what postal gods did we piss off here?
Greta has put some hints to what we can expect next month on Flickr and her blog and I must say I'm super excited.
And you can also get excited for April (my month) because I already have my fabric too! Hints about what's to come after Greta gets to enjoy the spotlight. :)

I'm pretty sure this is where my package 'o fabric for Sarah's quilt is! It's in this mail truck being pushed by 4 men. And it's in a small town in, probably, Alabama or something. This would explain why it's taking so long. I can't think of any other reason. And it's not just me, I think everyone in our little bee that lives West of the Mississippi, their packages are in this truck as well! So I say a little prayer that the men get that truck started up so it can get here a little faster!

I thought I'd dive right into our blog and post pictures of the blocks I finished for Sarah. I loved your fabric selection, Sarah and found that I had many coordinating prints and colors. For my first foray into improv blocks, I'm pretty happy with them. I hope you like them! Can't WAIT to see the finished product. :)
