Block 13✔️ Bee-Romantic is the reason why I fell in love with this quilt along…my obsession with vintage bicycles with a basket full of flowers!
One more pic…The basket was done with a basket weave stitch just in case you’re wondering.
Block 14✔️ Bee-Good. Yummy honey. I honestly eat honey straight from that squeezable bear!
Block 15✔️ Bee-Courageous. Go for it kitty. Grab that cupcake. You only live once!
Block 16✔️ Bee-Sunny. Go fly a kite!!
Only 4 more blocks to go🐝
I’m hopping right along with my Moda Bake Shop summer progress! I love staring with a great pattern and adding my own spin with color and fabric. So if you’re checking out the MBS blocks, mine look a wee bit different. For instance, I’m not using the recommended fabrics. Instead I choose a more ‘Lorrie‘ palate and went with the Riley Blake Backyard Roses line. Bright colors with a retro 30’s feel.
Block 9✔️ Bee-Fruitful On this block I chose to machine applique the napkin/quilt the watermelon is resting on instead of embroidering it and added a lazy daisy stitch as the seeds.
Block 10✔️ Bee-Kind The changes I made to this block were simply floss color choices and added eyelashes to her because who doesn’t love pink fluffy bunnies!
Block 11✔️ Bee-Industrious Once again, it’s all in the colors. A brighter green tractor and I added more color with some purple wildflowers to the grass.
Block 12✔️ Bee-Grateful I just substituted the wool hive entrance with a brown cotton plaid. Easy-peasy:)
Don’t be afraid to take an existing pattern and create your own version, your own vision of it. Small changes can make a big impact. This is how we grow as quilter’s. Go outside of the box and Bee-Creative!!
It’s hot y’all! But no matter how hot it gets here in Chicagoland, I know I can brave it cause it ain’t hot till you’ve lived your summers in OKC and the heat slaps you in the face and the humidity takes your breath away. So it’s hot here, but it ain’t that hot!
To stay outta the heat for awhile, I’ve been catching up on my Bee-utiful embroidery blocks. Take a peek and try to find yourself something to do this summer to get outta the heat dome!
Block 5✔️ Bee-Courteous…Check out those tiny 1/4″ hexies I made scattered in with the embroidered ones.
Block 6✔️ Bee-Sweet
Block 7✔️ Bee-Charming
Block 8✔️ Bee-Simple
You can find all of the blocks in the quilt along that have come out so far at Moda Bake Shop.
She’s the newest baker on the block and she’ll be releasing 20 blocks over the course of the summer until late August. Each block includes a sweet Bee and a cute theme. I was sold on this idea when I saw the bicycle with a basket of flowers block. I’ve already finished 4 of my blocks so far.
My CLMQG friend, Sharon, got me all excited about these blocks! Isn’t that exactly what good quilty friends do!?!
I’m using Riley Blake’s Backyard Roses fabric for my blocks. I haven’t exactly cut the fabrics yet but I’m auditioning them as I go along by photographing my stitchery on pressed fat quarters. It’s lookin’ pretty sweet so far!
If you decide to join in on the summer fun, be sure to post your blocks on the Bee-utiful Quilt-A-Long FB group and on Instagram with the hashtags #beeutifulQAL.
Block 1 Bee-Curious
Block 2 Bee-Productive
Block 3 Bee-Lovely
Block 4 Bee-Humble
Stay with me this summer while I Bee-creative🐝🐝🐝!!
Paige and I were commissioned to do a Christmas gift for Kylee, the 8 year old daughter of Paige’s friend. Her mom wanted a quilt for Kylee that she could grow with and have as a keepsake when she got older. Something girly, with peace signs.
We used a Moda Bake Shop recipe found here called I’m Blushing by Natalia Bonner. Check out Natalia’s blog if you haven’t been by. She does awesome quilting and some pretty cute patterns too! Lot’s to drool over:)
Since Kylee wanted peace signs added to the quilt, we changed the pattern up a bit by replacing the circle flowers with giant daisies. We added peace fabric to the centers. Paige quilted in an all-over playful loop with some special attention around the daisies.
We added all the leftover fabric to the back. The backing turned out just as cute as the top!
Merry Christmas Kylee! We hope you love your new quilt!
Welcome back to our weekend in pictures!
Margaret worked all weekend on a tuffet made from plaids. Doesn’t it look so cozy? Like it belongs in a cabin or beside the fireplace.
Karen V. worked on Cubs & White Sox quilt blocks, and also finished a soft flannel baseball throw.
Paige worked on getting the sashing made for her row quilt. It’s going to be hexagons machine appliqued on the sahsing between her rows and its turning out so cute! She worked on something else too but I don’t want to show it until it’s finished:)
And lastly, my projects. I finished attaching all the embellishments on my Snowbound quilt.
And also worked on some projects for the TeaBuddies Flickr group. July’s theme is the beach and our 1st project was a sunglasses case. Becky and Liz provided us with the easiest tutorial found here. I made mine from flip flop fabric and added a cute daisy button.
The other project for the month was a binder cover for a quilt journal and I used the Moda Bake Shop tutorial for this one. My fabric choice was Sanibel by Heather Mulder Peterson. It looks summery.
Check back tomorrow for Part 3….the food!
Meet Dixie, Shelley’s cute pup. She came to help us out.
Just a few simple ingredients for this recipe:
Ribbons and buttons
Shelley made hers from Amy Butler solids.
And I used Basic Grey’s Origins.
They’re almost too cute to put notes and pictures on!
