Despite the fact I kept Abbie home from Kindy today with the sniffles I actually managed to do some sewing for the first time in m.o.n.t.h.s and play catch up on bee blocks for my stash bee hive 8.
(Probably because I couldn’t go to the gym with Abbie home so I actually had time at home when I wasn’t in bed for a change!)
March was Leonie’s month and she chose this 9 patch and economy block combo –
Her brief was bright and scrappy, so I think I’ve definitely nailed that side of things. It certainly is bright, but I really love how it’s turned out. Hopefully she won’t mind that it’s better late than never…
April was Melissa’s choice –
Her brief was a scrappy, bright scrappy trip around the world block. I can see why this block took off so much on Flickr & Instagram, because it is super quick and fun to make!
I think these two blocks play really nicely together, even if they are not going to the same person. Maybe I might use them for my next bee block choice. Food for thought!
(That hedgehog up there is in the shot for a reason – I’ve been asked to make one similar by someone who collects hedgehogs. She gifts a hedgehog to each of her new grandchildren and has one due in May. Hmmm no pressure or anything. That will be something way outside my usual!)
February March I also made a block for Anna which I neglected to show you –
Now those are all caught up maybe I might actually work on one of my WIP quilts. It must be about time to finish Abbie’s quilt for her, since I finished the actual quilt top over 6 months ago and it only needs assembling!!
We shall see.
