Having been a tad late with some of my bee blocks in the last couple of months, I was determined to try and catch up and get ahead of the game again this weekend by completing all my August blocks.
Firstly, Ange asked to do some lovely easy blocks for Stitch Tease (hey, we’re getting into the habit of easy blocks girls, can we keep it up please? ;o) ) She asked for 8 mini cross blocks each, which will make up a border of her Marcel Medallion quilt (smart lady, it’s the only way I’d ever make one!)
Then Rhonda asked us to make some Union Jack blocks using a tutorial from the fabulous Molli Sparkles which I was a bit wary of at first, but turned out to be much quicker than I’d imagined, in fact they took about as long as the crosses did!
I’ve also been plugging away at the Brit Bee medallions, but they’re super secret (for the recipients!), so just consider them done ;o)
yay for getting ahead of the game. Love all these pretty blocks.
Thats very organised of you – Im sure nobody really minds you were behind on your bee blocks. You've been doing twice as much stuff in real life as anyone else !
Love your finishes.
They're all so gorgeous!! XX!
Your fingers have been flying this week. Well done.
Glad to see the Union flags are the right way up, even if the colours are,..well..odd!
Well done, I'd love a Marcelle Medallion too but am slightly put off by all that sewing involved 😉
Oh come on, you could do more bee puns, surely? Beelieve it or not…
These are neat blocks, that is definitely a smart idea for a Medallion quilt!
Great looking blocks all around.
That's so smart about the Marcel Medallion borders — I would never have thought to do that! All your blocks look great! 🙂
Great blocks! I love the idea of asking bee mates to help with the medallion quilt!
lovely crosses especially. i'm still pouting over medallions…..
Its so good to get caught up isn't it!
Oooh well done! so the union flag wssnt toomuch like HSTs?
