Bee Block Catch Up :: February

Log-Cabin-Block

It seems like I make bee blocks in rapid succession after falling way behind…and lately has been no different!  Here are the blocks I’ve made for my bees for February!  This first block is for my mom for the Sew Sweet Bee, I really like the log cabin she chose, and I used some of my very favorite fabrics in it {because how often does one make a block for her mom?!}.

Next up for the Modern Stitching Bee, this block for Annabella of Life’s Rich Pattern.  She asked for a Gee’s Bend inspired square block.  I honestly put these off for a while because she asked that we **gasp** not use the ruler and cut wavy/curvy lines!  I was so scared!

This was a real challenge for me, and my blocks are a little less-than-flat…but I hope they’re going to be okay.  It’s hard not to get a little bit of stretch on the seams that are more on the bias.  While these were some of the harder blocks to wrap my mind around, I like that I get to practice things like this for a bee, because then I’m learning, not just sewing.

Now, I just have to make March and April blocks, and then I’m caught up to May…am I the only one who is always behind on bee blocks?  I think I need to start making them at the very beginning of the month, so the days don’t get away from me!

    I can’t even begin to imagine how you made the wavy blocks! They look great though!

    I would have trouble with the Gees Bend blocks too. I have found that if I don’t make my bee blocks at the beginning of the month I get behind too. I was doing good until April and need to make the pinwheel block still. Not to mention my BOMs

    Your bee blocks are lovely – so many pretty fabrics! I’ve just joined a bee and I’m loving it for the learning and trying of blocks that I might never have been exposed to before.
