Sew Sweet Bee Blocks

October 5, 2016

I have been way behind in getting my Sew Sweet Bee blocks done. Today was catch up day! I was a bit nervous sitting at my machine. It's been months since I have done any sewing. It was like riding a bike. You don't forget how. =) *whew*

The cake block was requested by Missy. You can see the other cake blocks that were made for her on her blog Missy's Homemaking Adventures. Now for a small confession. I made this cake block in the  Snapshots quilt along by Fat Quarter Shop, but I never finished the quilt, so Missy gets my block! I call that a win for both of us, I don't have an orphan block and she gets the block she wanted. =) 

Renee@ Sewn With Grace requested a scrappy maple leaf block. I love this block! Making a quilt full of them in fall colors is on my list. 

Lastly, Peggy requested a split 4 patch in Bonnie and Camille fabrics. Easy and fun! Here is where you can learn how to make this block. 

The next project I need to get started on is a store sample for Cotton Creek Mill by Cotton Way called Spool Sampler. I am going to use a mixture of many different lines by Bonnie and Camille. I have more than enough in my stash! When they are done displaying the quilt, it will come back home to live with me. =) The pattern shows two versions, I am going to use this one, the two tone version using prints instead of all solids. 

As for my kitchen, we are taking the month of October off. The rest can get done later since it's all cosmetic. We need the break, I should say, my husband needs the break! He has worked so hard and was such a trooper!

I hope you are all having a great Wednesday!

  1. Oh I totally understand needing a break. Cute blocks.

  2. So glad you didn't forget how to sew :)!! So glad you got caught up with your blocks and are enjoying your new kitchen - with a much needed break from the renovations. The Spool Sampler quilt is a favorite and on my 'to do' list. Love those little blocks within the spools.

  3. These are cuties, I am so glad you are back in the sweatshop.

  4. Your blocks look great. I totally understand about need a break my dear. The sampler is going to be sew cute. Looks like a fun quilt to make.
