I can not believe that June is nearly over…. this year is slipping away way to fast. It was with a small amount of panic that I realised this week that I was running out of time to finish up some of my Bee blocks, so armed with a pile of fabric, my iPad and a caffeine enriched beverage I set to work.
First up was the June blocks for my Do.good.Stitches bee…
The block is a great log cabin variation…there is a great instructional video and pdf pattern for this block at www.qnntv.com. Though one block does not look that exciting, put four of them together and you get a fabulous orb pattern…
I have not done a cross block before and loved how easy it was to do. I got a little carried away with this block and made a few extra. I used Rachel from Wooden Spoons easy dimensions to make the block…plus lots of starch!
The final lot of Bee blocks I got done this week is a repeat of a block I did last year….
So I retooled my paper piecing pattern and set to work raiding my scrap stash. I actually think the only way to make this kind of quilt is to do it as part of a Bee (and to paper piece ti!). There is no way you want to be making more than a few of these blocks… okay there is no way I could make more than a few of these blocks and remain sane!
As it is Wednesday there is only one thing left to do….link up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
