Bee Europa – July and September blocks

Yes, that title does have “July” in it. Bad KT. But I’m all caught up with my bee blocks now, yay!

First up, stashbuster blocks (pattern by Little Miss Shabby) for Isabel. When I first saw the layout I thought these would take forever, but Isabel sent long strips to sew into groups of four and then cut into little strips, which were then sewn together back together into longer strips. The probably doesn’t make much sense but it was soooo much quicker than cutting and piecing loads of 1.5″ squares!

For September, Anita requested a star and a sashing block from this quilt. Again I thought the star would take forever, but it came together really quickly one evening during crafty club.

I think the fabric’s Nicey Jane. Whatever it is, it works really well. I would never have thought of using green as a background, but it looks fab!

Both sets of blocks should be on route. When I say “should”, that’s because I missed the post yesterday. Arrrgh – I’m really not doing well with these blocks. But they WILL be in the post next weekend.

    I love what you are doing in the first two pics. What a clever idea. I have missed you!
