February Bee Blocks

Hiya!  Its a rainy, rainy day today and I've spent most of the afternoon working on updating Sew Lux and getting some things ready for when our next bolts of fabric come in.  Can't. hardly. wait. :-)

I wanted to share the bee blocks I made in February.  I made three of these wonky blocks in these awesome Kaffe prints ...which inspired by the wonky Castle Peeps quilt top I shared last time. I am looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

I also made some disappearing 9 patch blocks - a new block for me - for the do.Good Stitches Faith group.
 I also worked on this 4-patch block for the Fresh & Funky bee.  I was a little scared about all these small squares and the grid lining up but it turned out just fine.

This weekend I've been working on wrapping more of my fabric into mini bolts and just cleaning up my space in general.  I have lots of projects ... for paper and fabric ... swirling around in my head and hopefully this week I will get to some of them. :)

Hope you've had a fabulous weekend! Talk to you soon!
