Nubees Block Swap.....

I'm proud to announce I have another month of Nubees Block Swap under my belt.  This was a fun one as well.  The swap started off a bit later than usual so it overlapped March and April so feeling quite confident I signed up not only for the March/April swap but the "true" April swap as well.  It wasn't until I realized I had never made 10 quilt blocks in a month before that I started freaking out a bit.  So, off to find the pattern I wanted to make for my March/April swap.

NuBees {A Block Swap}

I have pinned so many amazing blocks with tutorials to my "Quilt Blocks I Want To Create" board that I was not lacking for choices.  I decided to go with the November block from the Sew Mama Sew Modern BOM Sew Along.  I had loved this block from the moment I saw the pictures and tutorial posted on their site.  I knew this was going to turn out to be an amazing block on everyone's colors, and I was right!

Don't you just love how the colors pop in these blocks!
Truly excited to drop them in the mail.

I'm so excited to have these blocks completed and am so pleased with how they all turned out.  They'll be dropped in the mail on Monday, then it's off to finish the Nubees blocks for the "true" April swap.  Luckily, I have 3 of those done with two to go....I'll post pics of the finished group soon.

Have fun and Happy Sewing


  1. I have always wanted to learn how to quilt...maybe when I'm an empty-nester...

  2. A swap is a fantastic idea!!! I have no idea how to quilt, it's on my to-do list!

  3. Yes, the colors do pop on your blocks! Beautiful! I like the idea of a swap. Did you start it or was it one that you joined that someone else started? I'd love to learn more about it!

  4. The blocks look great, those colours really do pop with the solids =D
