Bee block and a little self promotion

I finished a very simple 6x6 square block for the Incredible Shrinking Quilters' bee for the month of May.  Yes, it's the 3rd of May, and I'm done.  This one required zero creativity in terms of design and fabric but it was a nice opportunity to handle fabrics in the Hope Valley line.  I can't wait to see Alison's finished quilt.

My 9-year old daughter requested some stitching on one of her brother's old shirts.  She stitched a little on the word "Wish" and the moon pictured below before she lost interest and Mom finished it up for her.  Not pictured is a star and a sun sporting sunglasses (my daughter's own design).  Iron-on patterns are from Sublime Stitching.

And, now, some self-promotion.  I started this blog last year to have fun sharing my passion for quilting with the online community but with at tops, maybe 10 regular readers, I've been considering some ways of boosting my readership.  I decided to add my blog to Quiltersblogs.com.  You will see the green and pink button added to the right-hand column of my blog.

New readers, please leave a comment in the comments section (Comments are always very much appreciated!!!, and if 10 new followers join my blog , I will arrange a great giveaway.  My first...*hint:  look at the dog fabric in an earlier post.  Details to follow soon, so don't forget to check back!

Cute block! I love that fabric line.

Your daughter's shirt turned out really cute! I want to get into embroidery more this summer.
