A June Quickie

I'm running today, preparing for tomorrow's retreat. Just popping in to show you this block I finished top-stitching last night for Tracey in the VIBees quilting bee over on Flickr. Tracey sent out delicious 5" charm squares and a chunk of white for background and gave us the theme of "petals". She is expecting her second child and plans to use her blocks for an "if it's a girl quilt".

I hardly made a dent in Tracey's charm squares, so I used a few more to make her this little tag blankie for her baby, and to say thanks for organizing such a fun bee!

There is soft-as-a-dream minky on the back again.

I think June is shaping up to be a really fun month on Poppyprint. I've got lots to share and talk about with you! You'll notice I'm dangerously close to 500 followers (WOWEE!), and you know what that means....yes, there will be a giveaway soon! Maybe even two (more exciting news).

Don't go far!

Is that appliqué? It's so lovely! You're so sweet to make an extra gift for your Tracey bee-person, too.

Congrats on whizzing past the 500 follower mark, Krista! I'm intrigued to see what you have planned for us... I'll be back...
