barely bees.

Two blocks for the modern quilting bee.

These are for Annette who took her inspiration from Jacquie.
Thankfully....I had enough of that white.
I just BARELY made it!!
I don't think I have the SAME white in my stash....
so I was sweating it out at the end there!
I did run out of Annette's printed fabric,
so I added a couple of rows of something I had
that I think matches o.k.
oooh....I wish I would have planned better.

I laid it next to that vintage fabric I bought yesterday.
I kind of like the way they look together. I see some NEW fabric in my future?
Then I worked on these blocks for Ruth.
I ran out of her pretty fabric too.
Maybe I'm having an OFF day.
Ruth said this might happen.
Oh well.
You win some.
You lose some.
May YOUR quilting fabric NEVER run out.
May you have joy in your stitching...
May you find peace as you trim and press!
I'm adding this to sew and tell friday.
