In the Mail {Stash Bee and Quilty Wishes}

This has been a busy, busy month for sending and receiving quilty mail!

This month (our last month!) in the Stash Bee, Kim requested bookcase blocks for a manly quilt. I actually picked up a scrap bag with some many fabrics while I was on vacation that were perfect for this block!

This month has also been "Get Your Quilty Wishes Granted 3.0" on Instagram! I haven't participated before and decided to grant some wishes as well as to make a little request and was overwhelmed with the response!

First, I sent the remaining Grunge Spot left over from my Jolly Bar Jazz quilt to Sey, as well as a fat quarter of a modern print I had in my stash that she was looking for. I forgot to take a picture, but it was an easy wish to grant!

Second, I saw that Sarah from Sarah Goer Quilts was looking for more monochromatic blocks, so I told her I would make a few! We were in the same Hive in the Stash Bee in 2014 or 2015. I cut all of the colored squares, but I'll need to go to the store and get some more black and white fabric!

I requested additional fabric from the April Showers line as my quilty wish -- I've gotten two packages and three different fabrics thus far!

This weekend I'll be busy finishing up my Faceted Friendship Star quilt, working on my blocks for Sarah, and making my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks for October!

  1. Wow, how is the end of another Stash Bee year already? I haven't participated in the IG Quilty Wishes; it does seem like it would be fun to give and receive, though. :)

  2. Hi Alison,
    That is so funny - from the little thumbnail I thought this looks like library books - and it is!! I absolutely NEED to make one of these quilts. Two of my good friends are librarians, and even more are avid readers. I have to start collecting fabrics that would be good 'spine' strips. I love this! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Great bee block, those book blocks will make a great quilt.

  4. Very fun bee block. Sounds like you were a very good quilty fairy!

  5. Your block in addition to the others I've seen in blogland will make a great manly quilt!
