I've been frantically trying to get my bee blocks done early this month. I have a few other projects that need finished up, but they were all on hold for a couple days waiting on fabric in the mail. That was the perfect time to get all of these done for the month.
First up are some blocks made from this tutorial over at badskirt. A couple weeks ago I received a fun little charm pack of Cosmic Burst from Mark Cesarik. These blocks are for a scrappy charity quilt with our guild. I thought the Cosmic Burst charms would be perfect for this X-block. The fabrics are so bright and fun. I especially love the top left block with the blues and greens.
Next up is a block for Andrea in our local guild bee.
Next is a block for Elizabeth in our Stash Trad Bee. She posted a tutorial for this block. Her quilt will alternate warm and cool blocks. I chose warm. It came together quite easily with her directions.
Next is a block for Brooke using the tutorial on Oh Fransson for the Mod Mosaic.
Finally, I put together a fun pouch this week as well. The idea was to make a pouch that fits my new notebook I had printed recently. I planned the size perfectly, but unfortunately the zipper is just a touch too small, and it doesn't fit. I was a little sad about that. Back to the drawing board.
It would fit just fine if I could squeeze it past the too-short zipper.
I'll still use it for another purpose. I love the chevrons and the orange zipper.
This is one of the stacks of fabric I was waiting on. It arrived, and I can't wait to start cutting. Some fabulous solids from Art Gallery!
