Finished some more bee blocks

Phew I finished 2 more bee blocks today.

The first one is for the Make it Modern bee. Sarah requested a very fun somewhat advanced paper pieced star.

Ok since it was only my second attempted at paper piecing that may have something to do with it being advanced for me. If you want more info on it visit Sarah's blog.

I also finished the sample for my month for Sunday Morning Quilt Bee. In this bee we are all requesting blocks for the Sunday Morning Quilts book. This month is my month so I asked the ladies to make a block based off of High Five from the book. High five has two blocks little 5 inch log cabins and a big 9 1/2 inch log cabin.

I asked my bee mates to either make a 16 patch of the 5 inch log cabins.

Or make 12 5 inch log cabins and one 9 1/2 inch log cabin placed anywhere in the block. Tessophia (one of my bee mates) choose to go with the big block in the center. 

Hi5 block for Jenniffier  and Jaden

This one is going to be an extra special quilt for a co-worker/friend's son Jaden, who was in a terrible accident in March. You can check out his facebook page if you want to know more/send good thoughts his way... www.facebook.com/prayforjaden?viewer_id=1617773690. He is making great progress in his recover and even started talking again this week. He gets to have a trial run home for Mother's day and I sure that makes his mamma super happy. 

SHH about it though. I want it to be a surprise and I do know that a few of my co-workers / shared friends of this family occasionally read this blog so SHHH! 

As for my bee mates I asked them to make the blocks say boy.  Tessophia added that some fussy cut prints would probably add some interest and stimulation. I didn't have very many things that I could fussy cut, but I did add some butterflies, bees, spiders and a lion to mine. Such great ideas she had and I am so grateful for their help in making this special quilt.

  5. Love the star block! Paper piecing is not my forte either. I find it's getting easier with practice though :)
