Logo Block Winner!

After several months and some stunning entries, I'm excited to announce that the winner (by unanimous vote!) of the Logo Block Challenge is

Amy Verne!!!

Amy was so thoughtful with her design. The red, yellow and black represent Maryland's flag. The dresden design is in honor of our state flower, the Black Eyed Susan. The purple and orange blades of the dresden  are for our beloved teams, the Ravens and Orioles. 

Amy's award winning block is now our official logo!

You can download a jpeg of the block here (perhaps to make a name tag?!)

Now that we have an official logo block, how about some logo designs?

I made up a couple. Please weigh in and make some suggestions!

Round Robin Reveal!

As I was working on the Round Robin quilt for June, I realized, hey, I'm getting one back! They were so fun to work on, I forgot that others were working on mine as well! After 6 months of stitching, Sunday we had the Big Reveal! We had 12 participating this time. After you see these awesome quilts, I'm sure you'll want to be a part of the next round, starting up at the July meeting. You can sign up in the forum, or simply come to the July meeting with your starter row ready!

I tagged the owner's quilts by memory. Which means lots of room for error. Let me know if I got yours wrong and I'll fix it!













Bee Block Roundup

Sunday was a big day at our monthly meeting!

Both Bee Block Swap Day and Round Robin Reveal Day!

Here are the bee blocks that everyone swapped! (or at least most of them) Such a rainbow of colors, patterns, textures. Wildly talented ladies! If you want to get in on the next quarter, sign up now in the forum. You have until the end of the day tomorrow (June 15th) to sign up. Once you see all these beautiful blocks, you won't be able to resist!
