14. Honey Bee star quilt top to piece, quilt and bind

No wonder I get stressed out, there are too many things on my to do list and a cupboard full of other UFOs. :) Today I will work on number 9 along with the blogger girl block for June as I've printed it out. The Fat Quarterly retreat is very soon - mid July so I really need to get at least one bee quilt done for show & tell. The Siblings Together quilt is complete and I have lots of bagged strips for the scrap strip swap as well as my sample swaps done.

Fun projects! That's quite the list! I'd get stressed out too but it all looks so fun so that should help!

NotionNanny said...

Oh my goodness... and I am stressing over 1 quilt, 3/4 finished already.. You Go girl!

Catherine said...

That's a lot of 'to do's'! But then looking at what you did in May, I'd say you can easily do it

Janine said...

Beautiful mosaic of gorgeous makes! I love the way you combine colours :)

No wonder you're stressed Sue, that's quite a list!

Alex Palmer said...

Wow it looks like you'd had a busy month and from the looks of it have another on ahead! I don't know how you keep up with all of that!

Linda said...

Lol - I am really impressed with your list of projects! Like NotionNanny I am stressed over 1 quilt. ;) I clicked on your blog to look at your Gentle Art, but I love your other quilts too.

Oh my gosh! I need to keep an eye on you! I love your Schnibbles... and love all the projects you completed last month. I just joined the Deck-Ade BOM. I think I need to stick with you for motivation!
