Baby Quilt and Wonky Log Cabins

I'm alive!!! :)  I have been so busy quilting, cross stitching, and reading the day away that I haven't made it on here in quite awhile.  Well, in my last post I told you all about a baby quilt that I have been working on for a very dear friend of mine and she has finally had her baby shower so I can now post pictures without worry of her seeing them.  So without further adue...
Here are the fabrics that I chose, the one on the left is the backing.  Her wants were blue and brown and sheep, and his one stipulation for allowing blue and brown, because for some unknown reason he doesn't like those colors together, was green included.

I think I did a pretty good job of accommodating everyone!  Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the final product before wrapping it up.  So next time I go over I will have to take another picture.  I used the pattern Lemon Squares from Fresh Lemons Quilts.  You can find the pattern HERE.  It was a lot of fun to make and fairly easy.  The idea is to put the blocks in no particular order, but I have a very hard time with that.  :)  So I put them in a pattern...I couldn't help myself.  LOL

On another note...I am a part of a "Wonky Bee" filled with 11 other wonderful, wonky women.  Each month is one lady's month and that woman is responsible for sending out a kit with fabric and a pattern for one block which the woman then returns after she is done making it.  Well, July is my month!  I sent off a wonky log cabin that I love!  And more importantly Hubby likes...kinda.  He's not really the "wonky" he helped me find a pattern that he could live with.  :)  I found the pattern HERE.  Anyway...I have started to receive some of the blocks back and it's so exciting to go out to the mailbox every day and check to see if a new package has arrived!  

The first one I got back was Laurel's:

The second one I got back was Christine's from Quilt Monster in my Closet

This is the first bee I have ever been a part of and I can't express how much fun it has been...thankfully we are only half way through with the year, because I don't want it to bee over!  I will continue to post pictures of the blocks as they come in and then of course the finished product as well...which we have decided will be our new quilt for the guest room, which is one of the reasons to blocks are sew big: 18"x18".  I hope you all continue to enjoy the summer, I will be using every minute of it to get as much sewing done as I can before the school year starts! :)

Happy Quilting!
