Life continues to be busy for me and there honestly hasn’t been much sewing or quilting happening in my life lately. So it was with profound gratitude that I was able to spend a few days prepping my fabric and then sewing my June Honey Pot Bee Blocks together. It was nice to get re-acquainted with my sewing machine for a bit!
Starting things out is Alyce from Blossom Heart Quilts and her BHQ Economy Square Block. She has a lovely tutorial for fussy cutting the centers of these blocks. As I am working predominantly with solids, I chose to go with the opposite of her suggestion and put my solids in the middle and outside and used prints to tie it all together in the middle. Also knowing myself, I oversized my cut pieces by her suggested 1/4″ and then trimmed each step to size. And I love the results! I used the heart print in an earlier block, so I hope this will be a fun tie in.
If you have been following along with my progress, you might notice that I have removed one block from my grouping. It just wasn’t fitting in, and I hope to go back and remake it to fit with the others as time allows in the upcoming months.
And just like that, we are about halfway through the year. June went by so quickly for me. I hope that I can get back to sewing and blogging in a more regular routine in July. If nothing else, Molli Sparkles will be sharing the July Honey Pot Bee blocks soon!
