Sew Sweet Bee Blocks

Hi friends!!  It's been so very long.  I finally got things settled down enough to get back into my sewing room!  I was hesitant, even a bit nervous, to start up again, but it's been so calming and relaxing.  Exactly what the doctor ordered.

The first order of business was catching up on my Sew Sweet Bee blocks.  These ladies have been more than a little patient with me (God bless them!) and I totally needed to get them done ASAP! 

The first block is for Kathy and she wanted the Honey Bee block.  She referred us over to Why Not Sew? for her tutorial and pretty much let us choose our own fabrics.  She wants to do the actual sewing of the applique so all I had to do was fuse it down (thank goodness!).

That one went together very quickly, so it was on to the next block.  Gracey wanted the Colorado Beauty block with a controlled scrappy look.

Such a fun block!  Next up is Amy and she asked for the Rising Star.  She sent us the pattern in the email so I can't link up but it is just gorgeous!

My new friend Missy let us choose a cake block to make.  I had such fun on the FQS Snapshots quilt that I immediately went and pulled that pattern to work.  And OMG!  I so love the way it turned out!  I really think I may have to make one like it for myself.

And last but not least, Peggy wanted a disappearing nine patch with Bonnie and Camille fabrics.  Luckily, I had some leftover from making my aforementioned Snapshots quilt so it was pretty easy to get to.

Such a fun weekend of sewing and so nice to get back in the swing of things.  I've missed y'all terribly.  I can't wait to start seeing what y'all have been up to!

Today, I'm linking up with Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts and Linky Tuesday at Freemotion by the River.

All really fun blocks! I love the applique accents, and while that second block is such a simple block, I am really drawn to it. Isn't it nice to get things checked off the to-do list?

Greetings from Germany!

Fun to see our blocks on your blog. I'm glad you are getting back to your sewing and a what begins a new normal in your life. Life circumstances can be so hard to bear at times. Glad you are getting to make a road trip.
