Bee Blocks






I've been having yet another busy month, I feel like I'm always behind these last few months which is likely due to the fact that I've stepped up my workout routine.  I'm now up to four days a week plus my tennis day, so adjusting to that has made me more tired than usual.  I'm sure in a few months time I'll be very enthusiastic with extra strength and energy from it, but at the moment I'm tired!

The boys are adjusting to preschool two days a week fabulously and I am now so glad that I have enrolled them for the two days a week.  I love picking them up from school and seeing their shining faces full of excitement from their day in school. 

I recently caught up on some bee blocks that I have been meaning to share with you.  The first two are for Bronwyn for our AusMod bee.  She supplied us with fabric and let us have the freedom to make what we wanted with special requests for blocks from the Summer Sampler Series, as well as some other inspirational photos that she posted in our group.  I just had to try out the block, "Arkansas Traveler", which is the top block in this post. 

Next up, for Lorena, for our Must Stash bee, she requested that we use low volume background fabrics to add to the Hope Valley prints she sent us in order to make the Climbing Jacob's Ladder blocks.   Those are four separate blocks--not sewn together yet, the photo makes them look as if they are sewn together sloppily...

The last two pictures are blocks for Belinda, who requested Granny Square blocks in scrappy colors with low volume backgrounds.  Last year I made a Granny Square quilt, you can view it here, that I LOVED making.  This was a wonderful revisit to making those blocks.  Such a fun block to make!  You can also read about the amazing quilt that our bee girls (and other wonderful ladies from around the world) made for Belinda here. Trust me, you'll want to click on that link and see it!

I love the fabrics in these! The fabric with the tiny, tiny deer is heartbreakingly gorgeous! Is there anyway I could find that somewhere?!?
