April Bee Blocks

Happy Friday! Today I’m excited! My hubby has the day off, so he and an army buddy will be working on my garden 🙂 They are getting the soil for my raised planter beds! One step closer to planting!  I wanted to show off my Trust Circle, Do Good Stitches bee blocks from this month to you.

This month we are working on a quilt for a little girl, I believe she is 7. We were asked to think “Spring”. One of the suggested blocks was a hexie flower. I also did some thread painting of the stem and the sun. The butterfly is embroidered (I got the design from the Clover and Violet Embroidery 101 QAL, it is from Block 2). We were also asked not to use white fabric for our backgrounds, cheerful colors were requested. I just LOVE this blue.

 

For my second block I did a Circle of Geese (pattern found here). This was also a suggested block. I was thinking I might do a sun, but I think 2 of those had already been made by the time I started my blocks. I used some of my favorite fabrics for this block and I love how it turned out.

Next month I am the quilter and I am planning a boy quilt with a spacey theme. I was going to design a block for the other ladies to make but knowing the level of creativity in the group I have decided to give color and theme guidelines and ask them to put that creativity to work, I know they will come up with amazing designs!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

    Any little girl would love that! Both blocks are so cheerful looking. I envy you the help with your garden. I have to have raised beds because the yard slows sharply in two directions, but I have no one to build them, and I can’t afford to pay someone right now, so I guess it’s tomatoes and spices on the deck again this summer!

    Those blocks are sure to put a smile on the recipient’s face! Your talent never ceases to amaze me 🙂 If spring ever decides to hang around we will be planting,until then my sewing room is also the garden room!
