The easy peasy one was the Bee Blessed block that Judith chose to be our BOM for June - Scrappy but Classy block by Anne Marie at Gen X quilters. This one took more time choosing fabrics than stitching up and I think it'll make a great scrappy quilt for Bee Blessed.
Queen Bee of Modern Stitching Bee, Anneliese, plotted to keep us busy with HSTs for an afternoon but I think you'll agree the results are very pretty. Her daughter should have an amazing pieced quilt
when these lovelies all make it home.
As you can see low volume strikes again for the MSBees!
In HipBees, Rachel asked for floral applique blocks in a variety of sizes. This one made me scratch my head a
little lot as applique isn't my favourite stitching style and I didn't want to mess these up on Rachel.
With much thanks to Google Images for helping me find starting points I have made:
a raw-edged sketchy applique 6.5" square with an orange morning glory (you know I never knew they could be orange but they can);
a little bunch of yellow tulips, satin stitch appliqued as best I could (this block is 12.5" square);
and a 6.5" x 12.5" rectangular block with a little flutter of blossoms and leaves of the "Sarah-made-them-up" variety (sketchy raw-edge applique again).
A trio of floral applique challenges!!
So, there you have it. All squared up on the Bee Block commitments for another month and next month I get to play Queen ....
