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!
