A Block for Beki

I am joining eleven other very talented ladies in a little project. We are making Twelve Quilts, in Twelve months. You can read more here and here. You will be inspired, I am sure.

I got Beki's scraps the other day. Some beautiful Amy Butler fabric, along with some paisley fabric. She wanted stripes. I fiddled around with it for a while, added some of my own fabric, and was pretty pleased. So now, I will mail it to her, and hope that she loves it.
So, over the next year, I have eleven wonderful women to get to know, blocks to make, another blog to contribute to, fabric to buy, and packages to receive.
Stay tuned!

The block is very pretty. Love the combinations. No doubt she'll love it, too! And the virtual quilting bee sounds like fun. Enjoy! I'll definitely bookmark the site so I can visit often.

That is such a cool idea. I think I want to start a group like this.
Are you part of that group you linked to? Or did you start your own?

That block looks great...it's similar to what I was thinking...but with a different spin. I can't wait to get my fingers on that fabric this weekend for a solid couple of hours of fun in the sewing room!
