Last night I finished the last thing I needed to mail my bee block package for June - so on June 4! That is crazy early for this chronic last-minute maker.
The June Queen Bee picked the Tic Tac Toe block, which I've made a few of now in the quilting bee and absolutely adore. I really like her colour scheme too, with low-volume black and white, grey corners and a bright colour for the X.
Again I made a signature block with leftover bits and cut charm squares from some of my favourite prints by Alison Glass, one of the queen's favourite designers too.
Her favourite colour is purple, so I made her a fabric basket with a purple lining and a purple and blue Kaffe Fassett print.
And now I'm all ready to mail! I will likely do that this weekend when I mail the package for my Alison Glass swap. Next month is the half-way point for the quilting bee, which makes me a bit sad since it's great fun. But that also puts me just one month away from being queen bee myself!
