Long Overdue Bee Blocks

To my shame, I still have four bee blocks owed to hive members from 2014.  Time just got away from me.  I am grateful to have finished off two of them this past weekend, leaving only two to go.

These blocks were made from fabric that was given to me by the queen herself, Anneliese.  Using her tutorial, they were combined to create lots of HSTs with her LV prints used as background and a fussy cut center.


Sadly, the second fussy cut was a bit off center, so we lost a head.  I assembled the block so it would be easy to replace this piece if you so choose, queenie.


I am quite pleased to say they are in the post on the way to you, Anneliese.  Hope they arrive safely.

I had no idea. She said nothing. Hmmm. Nice of you to send them. They ended up very nice.

These are fabulous! I love the contrast of the LVs with those funky prints!

She had so much fun on her scooter that she lost her head for a moment!

These are my last blocks to do too. They were all cut and ready to be sewn before P arrived but goodness knows when they will be done now.

love the headless scooter girl, seems really cutting edge and full of some sort of irony - an intentional statement I thought
