Bee Blocks

A few blocks I've made for the Bee Beautiful quilting bee :)

May was Penny's month, and she asked us to make this gorgeous tulip block. You just know it's going to be a stunning quilt! I'm not a big fan of machine applique so of course I procrastinated and procrastinated till it was June and I still hadn't done it. Oops. Not a good team leader.

But it wasn't half as tedious as I thought it'd be and I'm glad I did something out of my comfort zone. That's the whole point of being part of a bee, right?

And this month is Julie's month. See I made up for being tardy last month by being super early this month!

She bravely cut into her Neptune stash (I still can't believe she did it) and we all get to play with it. The solids are Kona Crush, which I've never used before and now want to have yards and yards of so I can just squish and pet them.

And Julie asked that we make a tiny little siggy block. My handwriting on fabric needs a lot of work but as long as it's legible, I'm okay with it.

I love these blocks! I love Neptune too, it's so awesome that she's cutting into her stack with you lovely ladies. I trick I found a while ago for writing of fabric is to first iron on some freezer paper. It'll peel right off when you're done!
