New Quilt Bloggers Bee- August Queen

I was the New Quilt Bloggers August Queen for our Bee. I chose a simple nine-patch block, asking it be in bright colors and white/cream.

I have been the happy recipient of little packages all thru August. How much fun is that??? Getting packages that I didn't have to purchase! I like getting fabric that I ordered, but it is tempered with the knowledge that I paid for that. These packages I only have to pay for in kind. Each month we send blocks to our new queen.

Debby is our September Queen. She insisted I give up my crown. I sent it to her, but only after I let the dog lick it. (heh heh.) Now I'm waiting to be thrown in the Tower of London to await my execution. I want to live!

Here are the blocks I have received. There is still one person who has not sent in her blocks.

They're not in any order yet. I'm loving the assortment of bright colors! I'm thinking I will join another bee and ask for the same block, to be able to make a bigger quilt.

Joining another bee to get more blocks is a great idea to keep this quilt growing! I think you got some really lovely pieces. :)

LOVE THEM! You got some really nice fabrics. I am doing the same thing with my September WNYMQG blocks and my ModernInstaBee blocks in January

All those bright colors are fun! I can see how it would be difficult to give up the crown :)
