Row, Row, Row...

Are you doing the Bee in My Bonnet Row Along?  The fourth clue comes out Wednesday, and I am caught up!  For me, that is very unusual - we'll see how I'm doing when I get to Row 20...   I am using my 30s stash I have been building for the last few years.  Each row so far has been very different - squares, butterflies, and chevrons.  Can't wait to see what Lori has in store for us next.

As for the swaps I mentioned last week, I have started on one and am fretting about the second.  The first is a scrappy Postage Stamp 4-patch - easy, peasy...Doing these as leaders/enders while working on my rows is making them pile up fast.  The second is The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt in country colors.  The country colors is what is messing with me.  I love brights, high contrast, etc.  Finding muddy, muted colors in my stash is proving quite a challenge.  I ended up ordering a fat quarter pack of Kansas Troubles fabrics to give me a starting place.

Instructions for the Stash Bee block for October should be coming out soon.  I hope it's easy!  Have a good week...



  1. ps. the block for October is easier than it looked!
