Emma's bee blocks
I have this incredible need to get my bee commitment blocks, swap projects and other sewing projects done. I have a few custom orders for hair clips and skipping ropes to complete, my goodie bag swap item plus the spicing up the kitchen item( Not sure of who my partner is yet so I can't even really start it ) .
My friend who is due a day after me, has this incredible need to clean...... I am glad that I want to finish my sewing or maybe that's just me as I hate cleaning and I don't like things hanging over my head ????
In the 'Bee seam piecing downunder' - Emma is making a quilt for her sister's birthday and asked for any type and size block as long as the predominant colour stayed yellow. I love the fabrics she choose and wanted them to remain the focus... so I decided to 'fussy cut' them and add yellow borders.
You can't see it to well in the photos, but I also added some feature stitching in pink on the plain yellow squares..... hope she likes them.
This block features again some hand stitching in pink - I think it ties the block all together !
