Completed Bee Blocks

I didn’t post the last day of June, I was busy finishing up bee blocks and dealing with some shocking family news. My Uncle was in a horrific motorcycle accident. He is going to be ok, but it will be a long and ugly road to recovery. Please send up a prayer of Thanksgiving because it could have been so much worse.

On a cheerier note…here are the last of my bee blocks for the 3×6 Bee.

I designed this block in Electric Quilt 7 and I truly love how they turned out. What I love the most about this type of bee is working with color combinations that I would not normally use, gives me a chance stretch my creativity. It also gives me a chance to see how versatile one of my designs really is.

I am going to take the next quarter off from the 3×6 Bee. I will still be sewing for Do.Good Stitches and my friend Shana asked me to sew for her this month, but other than that I will be sewing for my family and friends for the next several months. I miss working on projects that are near and dear to my heart and that is truly important to me.Β  You can expect to see at least 2 pairs of shorts this month for the Hopeful Threads July Project and I also have a little something special in the planning stages with Jenna from Sew Happy Geek, so stay tuned!

Do you all have anything special planned for the Fourth?

    Sorry about your uncle – here’s hoping for a smooth and quick recovery. I think my favorite Bee block is the top right. I like the extra dimension using 3 fabrics gives it. We have no special plans for the Fourth other than an ‘American’ meal – what about you?

    Thanks for letting me know about the hopeful threads project. I can’t wait to participate. Also, great blocks.

  6. I am sorry to hear about your Uncle. I wish him the best in his recovery. This time of year is always scary for my motor cycle riding friends. We always say to look twice for bikes.

    Your bee blocks are awesome. I especially love the aqua and orange one.

    I LOVE the purple block in the middle. They are all great, but for some reason that one is just over the top wonderful. πŸ™‚

    Sorry to hear about your uncle. As someone who has had riders in the family I always worry about them and the people in cars that don’t pay attention. Saying a prayer for his complete recovery. Love the Aqua and orange block, really pops! Can’t wait to see what you and Jenna are planning. With you two planning something it should be spectacular.

    I am so grateful your uncle will be alright, even though it will take a lot of effort and time. Prayers for his recovery and thankfulness for his life are going up. I love your blocks and my eye keeps being drawn to the purple an orange one (Phoenix Suns colors!) and the way it looks so dynamic! It really appeals to me. Thanks for sharing the pics.
