Bee Vintage Block Round-Up

So, I was AMAZED this afternoon when I realized that the sun was not only shining, it was BLAZING through the sky and putting some of that light right into the sewing room.  I thought, "YES!  I will actually be able to take a picture of the design wall and put it on the blog and it won't look like total garbage!"

But um . . . after I took the pictures (and the sun went away), I sat down to crop em and such and wouldn't you know . . . they were terrible.  Just awful.  However, the ones that I managed to take of the individual squares were decidedly less terrible.

So here's the artificial "wall" so you can actually see the awesome blocks my bee friends made for me, instead of squinting and turning your head to the side while you say something like, "I don't know what she's going on and on about . . . I guess that looks ok.  In a blurry, jumbly sort of way."

As you can see by some of my captions there, I don't remember all of the specifics on who made what anymore.  I put out a call for clarification on Flickr, and I'll update as soon as people start claiming their work.

This virtual pin-up is also no indication of how I'm planning on arranging them in the final layout.  I haven't gotten anywhere on what I want to do about sashing/binding/etc, but if anyone's got any suggestions I'm certainly open.

I think a patchwork vintage binding with white sashing would be lovely.. but that sounds like extra work. I really like the vintage sheet mix & match!
