Some bee blocks and a new book!

Another month of bee blocks ready to ship.

This first one is for Corey from Little Miss Shabby.  She posted a tutorial here.  This block was a rough one.  It was a lot of work.  When I first saw the block I loved it and thought it would be great to make a quilt from a bunch of these blocks, after doing just one block, I think I'm good.  I don't know that I'll be doing it again.  I love how it turned out though.  She chose such pretty colors.


The second block is for Megan from Canoe Ridge Creations.   She asked us to use this tutorial from Six White Horses.  I love this block.  I actually did this same block last month for Brioni in my Stash Trad Bee.  I love this star and I think I could make a whole quilt from them someday.  It's a great tutorial and fairly easy paper piecing. 

Finally, I have some fun news I can finally announce--I have a quilt in a book that will be released in December.  It's officially on Amazon!  You can see images of every quilt on the Amazon listing.  There are some fun ones.

Here is my quilt for the book.  I sent this quilt off to Martingale last December so I haven't seen it in a very long time.  It was a stressful process, but I'm glad I had the chance to do it.
