Blocks, Blocks, Blocks

First week in November and my bee blocks are done!!   Yippee ;)  I always feel better about my month when I stay on top of these and I love being able to cross them off of my sewing "to do" list each month.  It's just fun to have some little to do's that go fast ;)  And, they always have the benefit of trying new things, some that have been on my list for a long while ;)

For Beejeebers Bee, Cathy asked us to make a Charming Star block from this Moda Bake Shop tutorial and a coordinating 9 patch block.    I love the colors she asked us to use, and always have fun raiding my scrap bins :)

Then for the Bees Knee's group  Sinta sent us some of her saved  Heather Bailey prints and asked us to make a block using Little Miss Shabby's Tiled Blooms Pattern.  (Which is free at her blog)  I love applique, and especially adorable petal applique.  This one was so fun and so fast ;)

And then I had an "extra" Bee Block this month.  These Anna Maria Horner Feather Blocks are for a group of Individual MQG members who are making a Charity Quilt Con quilt :)   I am so glad the MQG found a way for us Individual members to participate in this as well.   I have wanted to make these Feather blocks forever, and I was so happy to cross them off the bucked list.   Because, while I enjoyed making 2 of them,  I don't know if I ever would want to make a whole quilt ;)   Another fun bonus of bee blocks ;)

So now I just need to send them off in the mail and then it is time to do a little quilting ;)  I have another secret quilt loaded on the long arm and am ready to quilt the day away ;)

I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!

  8. Luv to see the charity quilt with the feather blocks once it's completed.

  9. I am ready to make my Tiled Blooms quilt and saw your blocks in my search. What color thread did you use when you machine appliqu├ęd your petals ? It looks like a natural color thread ?


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
