Scrap-bee-licious blocks progressing

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.

Catching-up on Scrap-bee-licious blocks

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.

Scrap-bee-licious July Block: Drunkard Path

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.
