Starting Virtual Quilting Bee

I have decided to join in a virtual quilting bee hosted by Amy at Diary of a Quilter.
I have done two so far.  The first one I did is number 5.
It is a bit puckered and not straight so I will probably unpick some of it and redo it to get it straight.
The second one was harder and it is block number 1.
The corners don't line up that well but it is at least more square than the other one.  I am happy with the colours.  The fabrics for both are Pam Kitty Love which you can still buy, and a bit of Tanya Whelan.
 There will be 16 blocks in total and once I have caught up and done the first 5 there will be one every 2 weeks.  I think it is going to improve my skills and accuracy a lot.

  5. This is very cute. Quilting is so time consuming but worth it! Even when you have to use the seam ripper a million times! Thank you for sharing! I’d love to have you visit me at Get Your Crap Together! We have a Pattern Party with free patterns from the 1st of the month to the 10th that I’d love for you to check out. See you soon!
