The last of the bee blocks (for this hive)

I finished all of the Star Seam blocks and put them in the mail this week. I also signed up for the summer round of the 3x6 bee and a full year paper piecing bee because as we all know, paper piecing is my thing. I love the precision and geometric designs that it allows for. Also, this whole being at work at 6:30 every day and going to bed by 9:30 is a bit of a drag when it comes to my quilting time. That said, the new job is great, and I'm learning a TON.

Here are the last 4 blocks that weren't previously pictured. They are already on their way to their new homes.

And for the April Simply Solids Bee, we were asked to make an improv block with a gray background via the fabric sent to us from this month's Queen. I enjoyed making this more than I was expecting to. It was nice to have a very abstract, free form design. The May block is also a very free form pattern, so my guess is I'll enjoy making it, too.


  1. I love the colours! Really nice..

  2. That is a very beautiful pattern! The colour combinations are wonderful!


Feedback is fantastic! Give me your thoughts, and I make every attempt to respond to all of them.
