A few things

Dr Seuss Pillows 

story time, Lily wearing the scarf that goes with her cardigan

first two blocks for my Bee in Oz month

not one but two blocks from Rosemary

block from Ann in  Nova Scotia 

fabric from Cherie queen bee for September
we are making mod mosaic blocks
I remembered to take some photos of the cushions I made for Lily, Dr Seuss one side and yellow print the other. They are in front of her bookcase with the Dr Seuss collection clearly visible. Next we have granddad reading to Lil, she has the scarf made from the scraps left over from her stripy cardigan I made her.

The first two blocks arrived this week for my Bee in Oz month Linda's on the left and Cherie's on the right, when they all get here I will work out how to put them together, thinking of triangles and putting them on point which is the original design of the block. I have made the block bigger by using 2.5" instead of 1.25" wide fabric. This will eventually be a  new quilt for my bed.

Next are my August and July Christmas block swap blocks. Rosemary sent me not one but two star blocks for August, her block is almost finished and when it is I will post a picture. Ann's lovely star block for July arrived also this week all the way from Nova Scotia.

Cherie is Queen Bee for September and she sent her fabric with my block, sew I will get some more sewing done next week and get it back to her asap.

Your Dr. Seuss pillow is very cute. Lily must have loved it. I really love you Bee in Oz blocks. I have never seen that pattern before, and just love following all the patterns. That will be quite a quilt when done.
