Late night of Bee Blocks

Wednesday, January 19, 2011
I stayed up late last night catching up on some bee blocks for Bee Beautiful. When Audrie and I decided to start a bee I had no idea how inspired I'd become and also how much of a slacker I'd become at times. Little by little I got behind and while the guilt was self imposed it wasn't fun.

Erica - August
Erica wanted a large block quilt-as-you-go style made with vintage fabrics.

Michelle - October
Michelle wanted bright and fun dresden plate blocks

Stephanie - December
Stephanie wanted squares within squares within squares.

With these done I have officially finished all my blocks for Bee Beautiful. Now I won't feel guilty when I start on my quilt from the bee!!

oh and ps..
the dilly dally FQ bundle giveaway is still open till 10pm est tonight
(wed jan 19th)

These blocks look amazing! How do you quilt as you go? I've never heard of that before (although I'm new to quilting...)

Tricia said...

Yay! You finished them :) The dresden is gorgeous. I think I need to try that very soon.

The blocks are amazing. Thank you for everything! I hope you did not feel any guilt from me. I am happy whenever there is a package in the mail.

LOL, its the guilt around Bees that finally got me to stop signing up! That and the fact I have 6-8 (ok, maybe 10-12) swap blocks spanning 15 yrs in boxes unassembled as of yet.

I like what you did with the quilt-as-you-go block. It reminds me of fun Japanese Zakka style patchwork.

Stephanie said...

I love my blocks!!!! YAY! Can't wait to see all these awesome quilts made from the bee. So many great blocks made in 2010 (and 2011 :)

Your blocks are all really nice, but I'm especially digging the dresden plate!
