My June in fabric

What did I get done in June?

Well some bee blocks of course!   

Two Rocky Mountain Puzzle blocks for Susan, a four star block for Lynne, a rose star for Lucy, 2 Scrappy Trip blocks for Collette, an apple and a leaf block for Jodi, and more apples just for fun!

Some beautiful things came my way - yippy yay!  Thank you May, Cindy, Nikki, Nati, Nikki again and Julie!

And then there were quilt tops made with help from friends for good causes - my Stingy Bee Mates for Siblings Together and my fabulous mainly first time patchworking ladies in our church.  Plus a couple of little things - a new purse and a FQR nametag for a special lady!

And then there was this quilt!  

Which drove me slightly mad and challenged me at every turn but I did get there in the end.   I made this as part of the Made in Oakshott challenge courtesy of Lynne and Michael Oakshott!  Many thanks to them both!

The photos are taken in the garden.  On one of those rare sunny days!

Linking up with Lynne and all those other fabricators over at Fresh Sewing Day
