SATURDAY SNAPSHOTS


The last little while has been spent sewing blocks for the swaps I am in. This month it's my turn to receive blocks from the Mid Century Modern girls. I'm soooo excited about this quilt but more on that as the blocks start arriving    : )

Debra is part of the Scrappy Sew bee it group. This little ship is sailing to Australia




Lisa designed her own foundation pieced butterfly and sent us the pattern. This is a Canadian Solids group I am in.


Nicky is also part of the Scrappy Sew Bee it group and these are on their way to the UK



Just one more block and I am done for April.  I also have been busy making hexagons for my Hexi-bet quilt 








Have a fabulous week-end!

Nice bee blocks and nice hexies. I won't even think of starting the alphabet until I'm done with the hexathons. Yours are enticing though.

Goodness, every time you post block pictures, I want to make them...all of them! They are so pretty and the colors are beautiful. I can barely wait to see those hexi-bets all put together.

Oh my, how cute! I just absolutely adore that little boat block - and in aqua too :*) Your bee buddies are going to be really tickled!

That little ship is so adorable and great fabrics!

The bee blocks you've made are great. Love the fresh colors and designs. I hope you'll allow me a wee bit of extra time to get your April Mid-Century Bee blocks made. It's just a matter of feeling well enough to sit at a sewing machine, which I cannot do while I'm wearing the catheter in my chest. Thanks for your understanding.

Such variety in your bee blocks but interestingly they are all in the green/ yellow colour palette! I will have your blocks in the mail on Monday.

Wonderful blocks for everyone else - hope you get to sew for yourself soon!

Megan said...

The hexabet letters are so cool- do they come from a pattern or are you designing them? Your blocks are all lovely, I really like the things you make.

Quilting bees look like so much fun! Lovely blocks. I love the concept of Saturday Snapshots, by the way.
