Modern Stitching Blocks: May

You read that right.  May.  I am that far behind in finishing these blocks for Susan.  But life-stuff took over the past spring and sewing had to fall behind.  I am slowly returning to my sewing-self and happily picked this up as my first project upon my return.

Using a tute written by Susan herself, I made these two blocks:


Susan was looking for blocks in aqua, grey, lime, lemon or pink with fussy cut centers.  I generally don't have the type of fabrics that are fussy cut-able, so I really had to dig for two cute ones.  I went with a little nesting bird in aqua with lemon tone on tone triangles.


And then a little boy-ish navy/blue camera by Riley Blake with pink HSTs with little retro flowers in white.


I do think they're going to look good with the other bee blocks I see in the flickr group.  I can't wait to see this top pieced together!
