May Bee Blocks.

If you are looking for the giveaway, it is over

As of last night, this month's bee blocks are done, done, and done.  Even with a few days to spare!  Cha-ching!

First up, my block for Angela of My Three Sons (banquopack on flickr) in our {Sew} Modern Bee.  Angela sent the most amazing little fabric packages--the colors were yummy!--and asked each of us to make a block of our choice.  Here is the block I sent her way.

I decided to go with a simple bow tie block--which I had so much fun making. Oh and since next month is my "Quilters" month for the do. Good Stitches Bliss circle, I think I will be asking the other members to make this bow tie block in some fun summer colors.  Stay tuned for a tutorial.

Speaking of do. Good Stitches, here are my blocks for May.

WendyLouP asked each of us in the Bliss circle to make two blocks in medium blues and greens using this tutorial from Hyacinth Quilt Designs.  I highly recommend bookmarking this tutorial, it is wonderful!  I am hoping to use this pattern on one of my next quilts.

We have a busy weekend coming up around here.  My little sister, Lindsey, graduates from High School.  Eek!  Sewing time will be limited, as the Boyfriend and I will be spending most of the next few days helping my parents get ready for the weekend's festivities.  

I hope you all are having a wonderful week--especially with all those Sew, Mama, Sew! giveaways going on!  I will be back sometime tomorrow to announce the winner of the Denyse Schmidt Singe Girl pattern.
