Solid Seven catchup

I haven't updated you on the antics of the Solid Seven Bee in a while. We've been busy bees as usual, making pretty solid blocks for each other. A couple of months ago, EA gave us a pretty color palette and asked us to make "our favorite blocks". Her finished quilt promises to be interesting! Here are the blocks I made......
a woven block
an x & + block 
and an arrow
 Linda wanted a bit of sunshine in her winter so she requested these awesome blocks....
And then Jessica asked us to make these blocks in blues, teals, greens and purples.....

I had already assembled my strip pieced blocks from last year into a quilt top before the holidays. My friend Diann from Happy Quilts had worked her longarm magic on it and it was just waiting for binding. This week I got that done and now I present to you, Fruity Lemonade!
finished quilt is 48x60
I had to show you the awesome swirly quilting!
I still have my 70's Feeling Groovy blocks from the gals waiting to be puzzled into a quilt top.... I'm thinking they will be taking over my design wall this coming week. Hopefully I'll have some progress to share with you soon. 

Meanwhile, if you want to follow along and see what the Solid Seven gals are up to, you can follow us on Instagram at #thesolidseven.
