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.
