Busy as a (Quilting) Bee

I'm all caught up on Virtual Quilting Bee blocks!

This one's for Grace:
VQB Block - Grace
(No, my iron isn't broken again...)
This one's for Eren:
VQB Block - Eren
This one was the most time consuming, but SO much fun!
It's for Sarah, who requested that we add texture but not color.

I've always wanted to do some smocking.

    (25 yrs. ago)!
