Bee Blocks

I finished my bee blocks for November last night, so I thought it was about time for a round-up of the last couple months' blocks. 

Always Bee Learning:

October: Windmill Blocks for Stephanie, from the book Modern Blocks, designed by Lynne of Lily's Quilts

Ocean Waves
November: Ocean Waves blocks for Leanne. Tutorial on her blog.

That Stash Bee:

October: Rugby Blocks for Katie, tutorial at Teaginny Designs. 

November: Crown of Thorns blocks! Pattern can be found at McCall's. 

Imagine Circle, dGS:

October: Pineapple Blossom blocks for me. Pattern from Quiltville.

November: Starstrip block for Heidi. Tutorial on her blog. 

Bee {Purposeful}:

October: Scrappy Chevrons for Rachael. No tutorial, but here's how I make my flying geese

November: Flying Geese for Carla, inspired by this quilt by Ashley at Film in the Fridge. 

I just have one more bee block to make for 2013, since all bees but my dGS circle take a break in December. I really do enjoy making bee blocks and am always a little excited when a new month rolls around so I can find out what we'll be making. It's highly probable that I need to get out more...


  1. wow - kinda jealous you have November done already, but these all look terrific! Glad you get a little breather now...

  2. Ha ha... I'm not sure your recipients will ever let you out of the house ;) Well done for finishing off your November projects already.

  3. You sure have a lot of bees and the blocks are all so lovely! I am so excited about my blocks, thank you. And I love that crown of thorns block, it might have to go on my list.

  4. How many bees are you in woman!?

  5. Great blocks! And I ditto Flying many bees are you in???? I'm amazed!

  6. Holy many bees are you in?? :)

  7. Wow, that would be all the sewing I'd get done in a month! You must end up with some lovely quilts yourself out of all those bees?
