Bees, BOMs BOWs, and Bonus Blocks
1, 2, 3: Bonus blocks for someone else's special project. Only two blocks were requested, but I made #3 first and I didn't like the value contrast so I made #1 to replace it. I'll send #3 anyway in case she can use it after all.
4, 5, 10: Sew Bee It bee blocks. Due to various scheduling issues, blocks for April/May/June were handed out in May and are due at the July meeting.
4: Dresden Plate featuring bee fabric
5: Very tiny Plus blocks
10: Mosaic slab
6: Piecing Group bee block: hand pieced sashing unit for the recipient's Baltimore Album WIP. Not pressed; we float all the seams in hand piecing and the block's owner will press the seams as she wishes.
7, 8: Blocks for weeks 22 and 21 of Pat Sloan's Solstice Challenge. I'm caught up until block 23 is released later today.
9: May block from The Quilted Fox's First Saturday BOM. This is block 9 of the series. I've made all the main blocks and I have the kits for the alternate blocks, but I'll wait to make them until I see the suggested layout at the end and see if I like it or want to change it up.
Lots of variety! This is what I've been busy sewing lately. What's keeping you busy?
