Bee Blocks and a Bag

I have been trying to keep up with my Bee Blocks this week. I have over-committed to Bees because I had two coming to an end so I rashly went and signed up for more before the existing ones had actually finished. I really love doing Bees but sometimes it doesn't leave much time left for other things.

First up were these two blocks for Melissa in Sew Bee Blissful. They are for a quilt for her husband and it was lovely to work with these dark fabrics. I really like these blocks and can't wait to see the finished quilt.

Next up were two more blocks for Bee a Lonestar(burst). I am pleased to report that I am getting better at these blocks. I have got into a little routine for making them and didn't even have to use my seam ripper for these.

This one is for Sarah

This one is for Hollie

Finally I finished my Nikki Tote in Echino fabrics. (You may have noticed I use the word finished to describe things that are nearly done e.g. this bag does not have the buttons hand sewn onto it yet, they are just pinned on, I also have a habit of saying quilts are finished when I have only finished the top and still have the quilting and binding to go... I like to delude myself that projects are completed so I can start something new)

The front

The back, I will make sure the butterflies are going up when I stitch the buttons on.

Have a great week and Happy Sewing
