3x6 Mini Sampler Bee Blocks


Hey there! Back from our graduation trip to lovely Geneva, NY and back to the sewing machine ;-) All my bee blocks are done and ready to go in the mail and I am SO HAPPY with how they turned out! I kind of wanted to keep them all - I'm thinking this would make an awesome scrappy quilt. This was the Antique Tile block from the Modify Tradition blog - I found many blocks here that I love, love, love.

This was the first bee I've participated in and it was easier than I thought. The hardest parts were finding just the right block and choosing the fabrics (I hope my partners like my choices). Some of these color combinations weren't ones I would have chosen but I ended up loving how they looked together.It's fun to have "new eyes" once in a while! I'm excited to get my squares in the mail and turn them in to something fun - keep an eye out and I'll post a photo once all my squares have arrived.

The next thing on the sewing table is a sample Jennifer clutch from ithinksew.com for our techniques (or project) sewing day at Whipstitch NEXT Saturday from 8AM - Noon . And can someone please tell me where in the world May went??? I blinked and it's gone!

  1. These are fantastic! I love how you fussy cut a center for each one - I'm sure everyone will love their block!
