This is my block for Rita. Rita has the first round of the Sew Connected virtual quilting bee. She sent this set of sunny fabrics and an adorable little embroidery patch. We could choose to keep it, or use it in the block. How could I resist putting this in the block?
The thing about these virtual quilting bees that is so much fun is that I get to spend hours, days, and sometimes weeks on one block. I rarely have the luxury of putting that much time or thought into one block. Maybe a whole quilt, but never one block. It's stimulating and challenging working with someone else's fabric choices and their guidelines.
Rita, thanks for sending so much fabric. It made the process easier and gave me loads of choices. Hope you like it!
