Busy as a Blogtoberfest Bee

So … at last something has been sewn (and FINISHED!)  in the Pings Household!! My 4x5 modern bee blocks! Yay!

For this bee we had to produce 5 blocks …

I decided to paper piece hexagons and then applique them onto white backgrounds.

These were my first ideas back in August …

They were really fun to make, as I love paper piecing, but I totally underestimated the amount of hexies that would actually look good, so they took me twice as long as I thought they would! LOL! 

Each block is 12.5” finished.

Heather Grey, Light Teal, Green for Lainey @ LaineyBugDesigns


Cobalt, Lime, Aqua for Manda @ StayAtHomeLibrarian


Lime, Chartreuse, Grey for Nikki @ Bumbles&Lu 


Spring Green, Aqua & Grey for Lee @ FreshlyPieced


Red, Blue & White for Colleen @ TheBusyBean

Here they all together:


I’ve had to duck out of the next quarter because I just can’t commit the time, but I’m really keen to start again in the new year … and really excited to start getting the blocks these lovely ladies made for me!

There are some fantastic blocks in the 4x5 flickr group here … go feast your eyes!

Don’t forget to go and have a look at how others are doing in this year’s Blogtoberfest  organised by TinnieGirl … there are some great giveaways going on too, linky hosted by CurlyPops  … check them out here

I’ll be back tomorrow or soon after with the finished projects from  The Japanese Scrap Bag Challenge … sponsored by The Eternal Maker.  You’ll be voting for the ultimate winner … and I can tell you … there are some lovely lovely creations …

Here’s to a short sweet week if you’re working and a long leisurely one if you’re not!
