Just In Time

Well it's the last day of the month and I am mailing out my bee blocks.  I sure wish I could get myself back in the habit of doing these early, but hey, at least they are still going out this month, right ;)

All right, first up, is Kim's Scrappy Crossroads Block by Lori Holt for the Bees Knees Block. Technically this was March's block for the group but the fabric arrived later in the month so we were given a little extra time, (which I stretched a little ;) I love all of the adorable 30's prints!!  I have made the Scrappy Crossroads Block a few times now and love making each an every time.  It really is a super fun block to make!!  I think one of these for me might be my next "Leader and Ender" project :)

Next up, Nedra from our fun Bees Knees group asked us to make this fun custom block she designed using beautiful solids and Kafe Fasset prints.  I have to say, it was awfully nice to be able to sew this one up super fast ;)

And finally, Colby from the Beejeebers Bee asked us to make some fun Bullseye Improv Curves blocks in fun bright solids.  The video tutorial here really made it easy to make these, although I started with a 12" square instead of a 10" square to give myself lots of wiggle room.  I am not the best at making my curves line up :)  These went together super fast and were lots of fun to sew.

And those are this month's blocks off in the mail.  Yippee!!!

And one more quick note before I sign off.   There is another little Just In Time thing you might want to do.  My good friend Brooke of Go, Create, Inspire is doing her May Newsletter on little ol me ;)   So if you want to read a super fun article she has put together be sure and pop on over to Go Create Inspire to sign up for her newsletter.  The newsletter mails tomorrow so you need to sign up today, yup, another Just In Time ;)   

Now I am just hoping I can get everything I need to do for Market Just In Time ;)  Wish me luck ;)

Pin It!


  1. Just in Time is Just as Good! Very nice Bee blocks Melissa! I especially love those bullseyes.

  2. Those look great. I love that first block design.

  3. I like the 1st block too. I can relate - I'm a last minute person. So many things get in the way and time goes by way too fast.

  4. I'm in LOVE with the first block. What a fabulous way to use up scraps!


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