The great bee catch up

Over the last month I've been making a lot of bee blocks - I was so behind I had to make blocks from May for one of my bees (feel free to slap my hand here.) As of today though, I am completely caught up!

This is my September block for Stash Bee (using the Weathervane tutorial at Don't Call Me Betsy).


And September for Jules in Ausmod. Jules asked for two 16" blocks, made up of 16", 8" and 4" square in square blocks.


Jules' blocks #1


Jules' block #2

October's Stash Bee block is this pink and brown pinwheel.


And Jenn (aka Penny Poppleton) sent us some Constellations to make these beauties. I drafted paper foundations and paper pieced these (too many scary bias edges).



So I just have my November blocks to go. Stash Bee finishes up at the end of November, and we have a break until January in Ausmod so I will actually have December free!

If you are interested in joining Stash Bee next year, Danny is running signups at the moment. She has written some awesome posts covering everything you might want to know - head over to the Stash Bee blog to find out more :o)

It must feel so wonderful to be all caught up! The colours in the Weathervane are quite jewel-like!
