All Finished.

I sent out blocks to Jess and Samantha today. Since that means I have finished blocks for everyone who has sent me fabric, I guess I am finished with this bee.

I would like to say that I am incredibly disappointed in how this turned out and I think all of you who still owe people blocks are just irresponsible. I am still missing my fabric back from Domnique, Christine, Christina, Jacki, and Helene. It really sucks that the person who even organized this couldn't keep her commitment.

At this point I am not expecting any more fabric to show up at my door, but I do consider anyone who kept my fabric and did not return it to be thieves. Basically, you have stolen my fabric. If there had been ANY communication about the delays, explanations or something, it would be a different story. But I have not heard anything from you five and that's just RUDE.

If you think this post is out of line, I don't care. I had to save for months to be able to afford fabric and I sent it out to you all with trust that I would get it back because after all, NESTIES would not screw over other nesties right? I didn't even want to join this bee but Jacki practically begged me to in a PM and now look--Jacki is MIA also.

I do want to thank the few of you who kept your commitments. Hopefully I can just make a smaller quilt. I'll post it on Flickr when I'm done. If you're also on flickr, my name is PisforPatty and I'd love to see your work.

Blocks for Jess

Jess sent me some extra fabric because I said I'd make 2 blocks. With the plain white fabric I added, I was able to make 3! I'll hopefully get them in the mail in the next few days.

October fabric ...

Hey girls!

SO sorry it's late, I promise to get the fabric in the mail tomorrow. It's going to be a red & black combo.

I got the list of addresses from Sam (thanks Sam!) and was just kind of checking who has/hasn't sent blocks back. I think I'm only going to send to those who are posting here still (hope that's not too rude of me).

My list consists of:

If I missed someone, please let me know - I haven't kept up on this very well. If any of you want to do a second block, that'd be awesome, otherwise, I'll do the extra ones. If you do NOT want to do a block, just let me know - you can email me at jess.tyler2 at gmail dot com

September block

I really, really like how this one turned out. Course, I got REALLY good at ripping seams because I kept sewing the wrong sides. :) I have October, so hopefully I'll get my fabric out this weekend.

Nine-Patch Swap

If any of your aren't too scared off of quilting bees, I am doing a nine-patch swap.

To make sure people get what back what they put in (which has been a bit of a problem in this bee), no one will get any blocks til they have submitted their own.

So, check it out, and let me know if you are interested.

I really hope that some of yall want to join in!

It's done! Luckily the quilt store still had the black and white fabric. I also added a 3 inch border to center the squares a bit. Thanks to everyone who sent back squares. I did have to make several to finish it.

Hopefully yall can use this as motivation to either finish blocks that you haven't done or work on your own finished quilt. If you haven't finished blocks for other people, please do. You said you would when you signed up for the bee. It really doesn't take that long. If not, mail them to me (I'd be glad to do some more blocks) or back to their owner.

My motivation continued!

I got my squares together and added a few of my own to get this far before I ran out of the black fabric. I hope I can find more of it!

Has anyone else gotten anything put together with their blocks?
