Bee Blocks: May 2010

I finished up my May bee blocks yesterday... nothing like waiting till the last minute :)

May 2010: The Block Swap 2
For Mary in The Block Swap 2: she sent muslin foundations and the lovely greens and browns for this block. I attempted to make 2 for her, but I made a stupid cutting mistake. I'm sending the partially finished one to her too, so she can finish it.

May 2010: Scraptastic Bee
For Kelly in the Scraptastic Bee: Kelly send the background and black and white print and asked us to use scraps to make wonky houses! This one's pretty darn wonky, I have to admit. Wonky stuff is not my favorite. It's good that I have to do it in my bees occasionally, just to get me out of my box a little :)

Buzz Cuts: May
For Adrienne in the Buzz Cuts 2 bee: she sent the white and asked us to use blue and green scraps to make this block! This one is closer to what I like- intricate with lots of pieces :) I had fun making this one. It was hard to mail it off! I have leftovers and am thinking of making another block just like it and finishing it into a mini quilt :)

June is my month to send fabric for the Scraptastic Bee and Buzz Cuts 2, and I can't wait to see what I get back from my talented bee friends :) I have fabric for A Piece Of Work B, and am waiting for fabric for The Block Swap 2 and Bee White Black. I hope I get them by Friday, since I'd like to use Saturday to get them done!


  1. i just love the little house. it is too cute

  2. those are really gorgeous blocks! How big are the white/blue/green squares? That's heaps of piecing in one block - great job.

  3. Those blocks look wonderful.

    Giving a "GO" cutter away on my blog...come by and visit a while.

  4. I love ALL of those blocks. The first one is just gorgeous and perfectly sewn!

  5. I am in love with that first block!

  6. I like the colors in the first block..I'd like to see the completed project
