Let's Take a Trip ~ Work in Progress Wednesday

Happy Wednesday to you.  I have been working on a few bee blocks for a new - well kind of new - quilting bee.  The Cocorico Bee was one of the first online sewing bees I joined.  It is a paper piecing bee and that is where I found the technique of paper piecing.

Months ago I thought it would be fun to start a spin off bee with the ladies from the Cocorico Bee to start a traveling bee.  It is a round robin where we send the start of our quilt to one person in the bee.  It makes it's rounds and ends up in our hands again as a finished quilt top!  There have been some great traveling quilt groups started and I have been admiring their pics on Instagram and Flickr.

The first block I made is the girl going on an adventure (Adventure girl) - something I'd love to be doing right now : )

The second block was made today - a camera block - since every adventure girl needs a cool camera to record her adventures.  I think she has already traveled to Paris - I spy the Eiffel Tower in the lens!

The text and floral fabric is from a new line from Kokka called Lighthearted designed by Ayumi from the Pink Penguin blog.  I think the floral is my new favorite fabric!

Check back tomorrow for the next installment of the Anna Blouse Sew Along - Putting the pattern together.  We will start sewing her up next week.

Be sure to check out the other fab WIP Wednesday projects over at Freshly Pieced.



  1. Super cute blocks! I love that fussy cut in the camera lens!

  2. I just love these blocks! You are a master at paper piecing.

  3. Oh, these are superb! You're such a great designer, as well as a marvelous sewist! I hope you'll send the photo of the girl with valise to Suzuko Koseki's blog/shop. I'm sure she would love to see it.
