4x5 love

I just had to take a minute to share what the post man has been bringing me by the way of some crazy awesome quilt blocks!

Hive 6 4th quarter 4x5 bee blocks

This weekend the post man brought me the last of my quarter 4 bee blocks in the 4x5 bee.  I have to say, this bee is filled with such uber talented quilters, that the blocks I receive each round just floor me, and this round was no exception.  This round, I also met Leona in my hive, and it turns out that she lives about 40 minutes away from me!  I know I said that I wanted to go on a fabric diet, and was not going to purchase new, but I couldn't resist a fabric shopping date with my new quilty friend, so we have a shopping date planned for a few weekends from now to hit up a few quilt shops that I have never been to!
