Yup, that’s more bee blocks that you hear.

Stash Bee Block

Stash Bee Block

I made these two blocks for the Stash Bee. The Queen for February had a fabulous tutorial written up. She wanted greens and blues that read as a solid for the main color, a white for the background, and then brown for the outer edges. Let me tell you…I had a very hard time finding any brown in my stash. But I did have a brown chevron. Imagine that! I actually had to pull it out of a FQ bundle. For the blues and greens, I decided to use some of my scraps of shot cotton and the blue and green were some of my favorite ones. The green is actually a blue woven with a yellow. The shine of it is awesome. This block went together pretty quickly, except for matching up a few points. I had to fiddle quite a bit to get it perfect, but it worked out in the end.

Dresden Plate

Melissa gave me this Dresden Plate block. I’m only waiting on three more before I can start working on the top for my dad!

Low Volume Block

The top block is from Elizabeth and the bottom is from Stephanie. These are for the 3×6 KC Scrappy Bee.

Low Volume Block

Nikki gave me this small block. I’m going to add some borders and use it for my low volume quilt.

Bookshelf Block

Tia made this gorgeous block for me for the KC Scrappy Bee. The vase is awesome and I like that she managed to incorporate a chevron into it. 🙂 The Men’s Health book is pretty sweet, too.

Bookshelf Block

Sammie made this block for me and although you can’t see it, one of the books is titled “Basic Grey.” Sammie said it’s the prequel to “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Haha!

That’s all of the blocks for now. It’s my turn to start making some more!

Oh…and I bought some more fabric from Wildflower.

Fabric

This was a bundle that was for sale and I really liked the pink that I used on one of my Sew Together Bags, so I figured I’d like the yellow and blue, too.

    I hear them – I really hear the bee blocks!! 🙂
    I think you’re Wonder Woman of the sewing world – you can do this project and then do that project in a single bound … hold it, or is that Super Woman? Well whichever, you rock!

      Haha! Thanks, Kim! I like jumping from project to project. It keeps me from getting bored.
