Whew....

I may have bit off more than I can chew. I am now involved in THREE quilting bees/block swaps. This may not sound like much, but two of them require two blocks each, so that's a minimum of five blocks a month. Even thought this is a little bit crazy, I love the bees. They give me a chance to use fabric I had not yet tried, learn new techniques, and work in other styles. Plus, I know that no matter how busy I am, I have to make time for a little bit of quilting. Unfortunately, the holidays really threw me off. Plus, in DC, the inauguration made everything crazy until only a week ago. Then, add in a new job, a barely sleeping baby, and a crazy crazy toddler, um, yeah. I was a little behind. Fear not. I am caught up. They will all be going out on Monday. Here they are, in all their glory. First up, Alissa's blocks for Block Party. If you want to hear more about these blocks, check out the Block Party blog. Alissa's First Block Alissa's Second Block Alissa's Third Block Next up, the January block for Sew Connected 2 Sew Connected 2- January Block Now the December blocks for the About.com Birthday Block Swap Black and White Quilt Block Flower Quilt block Finally, the About.com swap January Blocks Outhouse Quilt Block Civil War Reproductions Quilt Block What a relief to be all caught up!

I know the feeling - and I don't work either, so I hate to think how you're managing to get them all done!!!!

Great blocks though, I love them all!
