May Bee Blocks

I finished my bee blocks very early this month and only had one to finish up by the 15th! Super proud of myself! I definitely think as my bees finish I'm going to start phasing out of them just because I don't have time to work on projects that I want to do because I have to do bee blocks. I love doing them but I'm going to try and get down to one or two. This months' bee blocks were a lot of fun, I liked them all, but I definitely am starting to run out of low volume prints. Low volume is all the rage right now and there have been lots of blocks that have those fabrics. I had a few but now my little collection has dwindled and I'm debating on how much I should stock up on while also being budget friendly. Ugh... if only I had unlimited money..:)

Without further ado...

BeeJeebers - my favorite bee and also my favorite block this month!! The tutorial is here, by Melissa, who blogs are Happy Quilting and is a member in our bee!

Simply Solids - reverse squares, I haven't worked with purple in awhile so this was a nice change, I'll need to pull some purple out soon.

  1. You've been very busy! The pink Xs really intrigue me. The kind of thing you almost have to do in a bee to get enough fabrics to be really great. Hmmm.

  2. What a great collection of bee blocks. I love the beejeebers block in particular, so thanks for the link to the pattern.

  3. Wonderful blocks!!! Great colours and fabrics!

  4. I love all of these blocks you have finished.I really want to try that low volume block and make an entire quilt out of it. I think it will be fantastic. Keep sewing.
