April Bee Blocks

I was featured on Quilting Bee Blocks Green Edition for 1 of the Maple Leaf Bee Blocks I made for my own month. To see more of these blocks go here.

Sadly, due to family commitments I have had to resign out of 2 of the 4 bees I was in. I've decided to stick with the 2 Canadian bee's (as Canadian bees are a little harder to fill).

Here are the blocks I completed for Heather (feltartistic) of the Maple Leaf Bee. Heather sent us some vintage sheeting fabric and asked us to make 2 blocks using the tutorials Rachel of p.s. i quilt has put on her blog for the Pinwheel Sampler Quilt Along.

May is the first month of the Sew Modern Bee and happens to be my month. It's a really great group and I think it will be a lot of fun! I sent out 11 packages containing prints from Studio E "Flourish" line and asked for a mini quilt as a block in a 16.5 inch square.

I did up 1 block so that I end up with 12 blocks. I used the Oh, Fransson tutorial for Wonky Crosses that was done up for Sew, Mama, Sew's quilting month. I used scraps that were returned from two other members of the group who sent me some pretty cool blocks.
Below is a mosaic of blocks completed by my fellow bee members!


  1. I love what you have done with the dresden block! But they are all so pretty! I totally understand about having to scale back on Bees. There were a few I wanted to join but took one look around my room and realized there is no way I can take on another project! I tell yeah, we need more hours in a day....

    Have a great evening!

  2. Or... maybe we need more days in the week...!

  3. I can't wait to see this sampler quilt all put together!
