Asterix and Obelix

Just kidding... although I do love those two crazies :)

I am in a year-long, all solids bee where my group is all Canadian. I have to say it is kind of fun to have Canuck love :)

I took the first month since I knew pretty quickly what block I wanted made... the asterix.

I have sent out a whole bunch of different colours to the 11 people in my bee and they will be sending me back a 4-pack.
It won't be a huge quilt so I am going to be doing a border of some kind around it... looking forward to seeing what I receive!
In addition, I fell in love with an Echino quilt on Flickr by Mermaid Sews. Since I participated in 2 Echino 10" swaps I realised she had provided me with the perfect idea! Here is my first block... it ends at 18.5 unfinished.

I hope to have some more finishes to show you soon... a table runner and a doll quilt.


  1. I'm pretty excited for this bee, too! I'll email you the second I've got the fabric.

  2. Oh, I love these, Katy. Great colors!

  3. That's a great asterisk block and quilt! Since I have been doing the Flikr group swaps, I have learned to love solids. The other Echino idea makes me smile. Was that swap part of the Big 10 inch swap? Can't wait to see these finished.


Thanks for your two cents!
