I May Bee a Little Bee-hind

Oh, the pun is killing me!  But how can you resist these opportunities?

I am behind in my bee blocks in a big way.  I owe April blocks to Eva that I haven't started yet and the June blocks are piling up.  It is very not like me to get behind in my bees because I find bee blocks to be great mini adventures that inspire me to stitch more.  These blocks are no exceptions, but I have found it difficult to dedicate the time to stitching. 

Earlier this week I pulled out the equilateral triangles of Glimma that Anneliese sent the Modern Irish Bee in May and dug in.  I absolutely loved making these!  It's my first time sewing equilateral triangles and there is a trick or two to learn, but once you figure out what you are doing these come together quickly.  I could have kept stitching, but Anneliese wants our "left over" triangles to join the rows together.  Ah well.



What a great fabric line!  The colors are just yummy.


Anneliese also asked for a donation Scrappy Trip Along block to create a donation quilt from our Modern Quilting Guild of Ireland, so I put this together.  As everyone says the tute is very easy to follow and the block comes together in no time.  I enjoyed stitching this cutie as well!  I can't wait to see what our collective quilt looks like.


Susan and Judith, your blocks are up next!
