FQR - the bee blocks I received!

Oh happy days!

Throughout FQR I was fortunate enough to be handed some little special parcels as several bee mates came and personally handed me their blocks!

Normally I give a little shriek - at least inwardly when I receive a something handmade by someone!  I had to show a little bit of decorum in public - especially when they were handed to me in class or in mid conversation!

So apologies bee mates if you thought I was ungrateful!

I am totally not!

Look at these gorgeous blocks altogether from the Modern Stitching Bee!

Received from Susan, Cindy, Emily and Di - for heaven's sake she came all the way from the US just to hand deliver my blocks - didn't she???   I took Susan downunder's block and mine too as I thought they would love to make friends as early as possible.   I was right!

I have a feeling this is going to be a spectacular quilt which I am going to adore!

Looking forward to receiving the other installments - I know some will take a bit of time for various reasons but the wait will be so worth it!

Did you think that was all?

No it is so not!

Catherine handed me these beautiful blocks and they are not even due till next month

Love them Catherine - you do love your blues and for some strange reason I always choose aqua rather than proper blue so my true blue stash is very limited.  Like that you help bring some equilibrium!  I do really like blue by the way!

You think that is is done ??  Wrong!

I have been receiving blocks from May's Star of Africa bee on the theme of children's books and Di from Quiltova vounteered to help my international bookshelf - I did give her something too!

After consulting her local Czech experts she made me this absolute cutie!

  A little mole!   And yes I still need to practice his name Di!

I know he is going to make great friends with this little cutie from Cindy!

Ok this little FQR show is over - there could well be more!

Had a great time at FQR?   Oh yes!

Glad to be home?   Yes as I'm quite worn out, and no as well as I didn't get to meet everyone and I am already missing lots of you!

Will I be going again?   You bet if at all possible!  After all a sore back didn't stop me this time!


  1. Fabulous blocks!! Glad you enjoyed it and hope your back is better soon! :)

  2. Fab bee blocks. It has been great to hang out with you this past weekend. Di x

  3. Amazing blocks Nicky - I'm sure you have enjoyed petting them all morning :)

  4. Wow! You pick the best bee blocks Nicky!

  5. It was brilliant to finally meet you Nicky.
    I definitely think we need to have a down South meet up soon!

  6. Hi Nicky, it was great to meet you on Saturday morning. Those big hexagon blocks were great :)

  7. How did i not know you we're there? Great bee blocks

  8. I'm sorry your back was troubling you. We didn't really meet properly. It was all a bit frantic for me at times.

  9. Oh I love your bee blocks. they look fantastic. By all the photos on instagram it looked like you all had a great time on the weekend.

    Have your blocks done....believe it or not!

  10. Wasn't it fantastic, and so lovely to get to spend time with you. I have just uploaded two of your pictures to flickr if you want them: your block from Lynne's class and your bee blocks

  11. Your quilt will be fantastic Nicky! Glad you had a great time!

  12. Ooh lots of lovely new projects!!

  13. You are going to have some amazing quilts. So pleased I am a small part of one of them. Must, must, must meet in London in September so we can get some proper chatting time in.

  14. It was great to see you in London. I love all your bee blocks and will get the one I forgot to bring you in the mail tomorrow.

  15. Those Bee blocks are gorgeous - can't wait to see the finished article! Also I am going to blame your beautiful modern Dresdens Oakshott quilt for leading me astray at Quilt Market .... I am a total Oakshott addict now!

  16. I can see why you were so excited about all the bee blocks you received over the weekend - they're amazing! Glad you had a good time xx

  17. It was so great to meet you...but they should add another day to the weekend just for talking and sharing. I didn't get to talk to everyone like i would have liked to.

  18. You were showing decorum? Really? ;o) I got all mine at different random times, and ended up just shoving them in bags, I really should let them get out more!


Hello, I'd really like to hear from you...
