It grows!

x and + block 12" finished
Remember this tutorial I recently posted?  Well I thought you might be interested in how things were progressing...  The Modern Stitching Bee members have been hard at work and I am so excited I started posting all of the blocks up on my design wall.
It grows. #modernstitchingbee
I am in absolute LUST over the random beauty that is coming together here!!!  I know I could never achieve such a gorgeous variety of fabric and design choices from a group of blocks all on my own.  I am thrilled I went with this block as my choice for the Bee.  In fact, to be honest I'm more than a little afraid to create more blocks of my own to square it off/make the top bigger lest my style *mess* the random beauty up.  Don't laugh, you know what I mean!

Moral of the story, go find a Bee to help you make these awesome blocks!

Fabriholics Anonymous April Link Up!

I am following Jess's lead this month by posting the Fabriholics Anonymous Link with some delicious Low Volume Swap fabric...mmmm...  (Jess...don't mean to make you jealous...  Wink!)
windy peek
Like Jess, I too must admit to having fallen off the wagon in the month of April.  After using the Ludovika for backing in my last finished quilt Above All Pink I promised to pick up some for one of my bestie WNYMQG friends when I visited Ikea...given that the Ikea I visited was roughly 8 hours away and I was on vacation...well one thing led to another and I ended up picking up backing for her and two other Ikea fabrics as well...  I couldn't help it!  After all, some day Ikea's supply of Britten Nummer is going to run out!!!  I also picked up some Julita fabric as it is simple and fun so I figure one of the girls would love it on a quilt (which I cannot find on the Ikea website...hmmm...good thing I grabbed some when I did...).  Hope you guys can forgive my temporary lapse!!!

Speaking of the fast though - I am seriously considering continuing my fabric fast for the next 6 months.  I haven't put as much of a dent in my stash as I previously hoped, and I have other upcoming expenses that I'd like to continue to keep saving for.  For those of you who missed the first phase start considering whether you'd like to join on for the second half of the year...I'd love to have company!  

Don't forget to visit Jess and link up below!
