Sewcial Bee Sampler Week 25

This is the last block in the Sewcial Bee Sampler (a fun online sew along), hosted by Sharon Holland and Maureen Cracknell! The block for this week is Prairie Queen (for the free download to make this or the previous blocks, visit Maureen's or Sharon's blog).

Woohoo! Super excited to finish the final block in the sew along and to have made each block using my scraps.  I have had great fun going through my scrap stash and playing with lots of bright, happy colours as well as a myriad of low volume fabrics for my backgrounds.  My plan is to continue to use low volume scraps to make the sashing for my blocks, which I know will take a bit more time and consideration than using a single fabric.  However, I wanted this quilt to come completely from my stash and I'm looking forward to seeing how I can mix more low volume fabrics into the finish. ;o)


Although all the blocks are now finished, the sew along is not over with just yet! Sharon and Maureen will continue to guide us through the completion of our quilts.  I'm looking forward to not only turning my blocks into a quilt, but also seeing all the other participants' quilts made from the SBS blocks. I really can't believe how quickly the weeks passed and how much I anticipated the release of each week's block!  What a wonderful sew along that I am happy to have joined!

  5. Another great looking block for this awesome quilt. I can't wait to see all these blocks turned into one awesome quilt, but I really am going to miss the weekly surprise of these fabulous brights and low volume quilt blocks.
