The BCF Quilt-along update!

Hi everyone! I finally got my fabric cut for the Between Charming Friends Quilt-Along. I was waiting for our background fabric to come in the mail. It finally arrived today. So, I got my fabric cut and also B-Sew Cute's fabric cut. Hopefully tonight we will be able to get started on the sewing and catch up.

Here is B-Sew Cute's cut fabric. She chose Aqua SKU# 9900-34 from Moda's Bella Solids collection as her background color. I just love it. I think it will look great with her "Sweet" Charm packs.
Here is my fabric all cut up. I used White as my background fabric. I decided to use the red polkadot from the Make Life collection for the binding though instead of the white. I think polkadot's look so great as the binding. And it will co-odinate great with my Make Life charm packs.
I also received more blocks in the mail today for my Month of the Sew Modern Bee.
I've received 9 blocks so far. I just love them. This is my first Bee, and I'm loving it. I also love the fact that it's all Canadian girls and we don't have to worry about customs. The shipping is so much cheaper too.
Here are my blocks so far.....

I will be putting sashing in between these blocks. I think they look great. Can't wait to receive the rest of my blocks.

I hope you all have a great day.

I am so glad you are joining us in the quilt along. I will be way behind as I am leaving for vacation this Friday so I will only get to sew when I come back. I love your fabrics and your blocks. I know what you mean about customs!
Happy Sewing!

great fabric choices from both BSewCute and yourself. I love that red polkadot border especially. It'll just rock your quilt!
