This year I joined an online quilting bee. Each month I am sent fabric and instructions of which block the person wants made from the book Modern 99: Quilt Blocks from your Favorite Designers. This month is happyvanillabean's month. Here is the block I made for her.
I also made three zippy bags with the awesome hand printed fabric that I won from Amy at During Quiet Time during the Sew,Mama, Sew give away. You can buy some of her printed fabric from her Etsy shop. I love the prints so much and tried to use every square inch! Her husband also makes the most amazing stitch rippers. I don't have a picture of mine, but I love it. It has a great weight and feel to it. Even if I'm pissed off to be ripping out a seam, at least I feel like a professional doing so. I plan on giving one bag away as part of the Gen Q Stitchy Valentine Swap The fate of the others haven't been decided.

**When I was a child I called the afghan my grandmother made for me my kiki. It is now just common terminology around our house for all crocheted blankets.
