Starting Simply Solids!

I may have overbooked myself sewing-wise this year, but I couldn't help myself!  I've joined a year-long sewing bee - the Simply Solids: a modern {bee}.  We can only use quilting quality solid colored cotton fabrics.  Each member of the bee picks a month and a block pattern.  Then when it's your month,  you can either have the other members make your block by stash busting or you can send them fabrics to use. 

I cleaned up the sewing space and in the process consolidated my solid scraps.  The first block for February was a wonky log cabin.  I had fun making one so I didn't stop there and I made two!  I'm going to let my bee partner pick which one she likes the best and I'll keep the other for myself.

I over committed myself, too. However, I'm not going to be president of a quilt guild this year so that lightens the load.
