I have been flat out at work this week, with the goal of finishing everything so that I can enjoy our vacation next week.
I have managed to make some progress on the scrap-bee-licious blocks, finishing up this star block.
I have also finished all the pieces for one of the flying triangle blocks as well.
Only 3 more to go. I am linking up with Amanda Jean over at Crazy Mom Quilts.
I have been trying to catch-up on some of my Scrap-bee-licious blocks this week, as I owe blocks for April, May and June.
April’s block is this wonderful little star – those squares are 1.5″ and has 42 HSTs.
May’s Blocks are an appliqué block that comprises of vines and leaves (not started yet).
June’s blocks are a lot of flying geese which I am paper piecing. Each segment (two flying geese) is a 3.5″ piece. I am missing one row on this one which I am think of adding some of my own fabrics to.
I am hoping to have all these blocks complete by the weekend!! Linking up with Lee over at Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday (see button on the right).
We are nearing the end of our Scrap-bee-licious bee group, two months to go. For July, I am queen. It took me a while to choose my design. I wanted a design that could be a challenge but fun. So, I decided to look at what I would like to do, have not tried, and needed a little push to get started. The decision…drunkard path blocks.
I have been collecting inspiration on Pinterest for a while, I have included links below, please refer back to original posts

My Bee Block:
I would like drunkard path blocks which have the circle part made with one of these colors (preferably the 5 right colors). These can be either solid or print (just no prints with animals or characters on it and modern fabrics please).
The outer ring should be a solid neutral such as in the Kona ranges (which you do not have to use)….Bone, Neutral, Oyster, White, Sliver or Shadow.
Here is an example:
I do not as yet have a plan on how I am using the blocks. But we are going to use the template E and F at the back of ” A Quilter’s Mixology” for the drunkard path block. It makes a 7″ block. The sewing instructions are on pages 14-16. Everyone in Scrap-bee-licious, who has confirmed their addresses has a book on its way 🙂
Scrap-bee-licious folks, let me know if you have any other questions. Hopefully that clarifies it somewhat.
