long distance quilting bee

I wanted to get in and post before Friday comes around again - amazing how these weeks are just zipping by - maybe its because I'm going on holiday soon that I seem to be losing time way faster than normal :)

I made these jar blocks for Amy for the March long distance quilting bee last night - they were quick and easy to come together and I really love the idea - can't wait to see Amy's finished quilt - one of the members has done a jar full of chillis and they look so real - its amazing the variety of fabrics you can get :)

I did a jar of fish and a jar of butterflies - I particularly love the butterfly fabric which I've had for a while but never used - I think I had a project in mind when I bought it but you know how that is :)

I hope Amy likes the blocks and I've got to get the other March LDQB block done this weekend - Joy has asked for a herb garden theme block so I'm going to do some embroidery for that - again, I've got quite a few projects to get done this weekend so I'll be busy in my favourite room :)

Hope you have a fabulous weekend.


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing your herb garden block! The jar blocks are lovely!

  2. Jar blocks are so fun and great for those special prints.

  3. She`ll love them - such cute blocks Leanne!

  4. I too love your jar of pink butterflies. What a fun idea to put little fabric items in a fabric jar. Happy quilting...

  5. Thanks Leanne, they are so sweet! The butterflies especially make me smile, and the fish are absolutely wonderful. Can't wait!

  6. Cute blocks Leanne! Bring on the Herbs!
