There's really so much going on right now, that I almost don't know where to begin. Let's just say that the majority of things that have been tying up my time these past weeks are essentially secret and behind the scenes projects... not to mention that I am about to have a major life change...
Before imaginations start going wild, let me just simply say that we are about to move. My husband and I have been talking about this move since we have been married, and it would seem that now is the time. I've not talked about it here, but just a little heads up might explain some future missing-in-action time here.
So, I've essentially been working on TWO Quilty Circle of Bees projects at one time. Firstly, Mell is up with her Wanta Fanta blocks. This is a great, free paper pieced pattern from Better Off Thread, as found on Blossom Heart quilts.
She asked for lots of pinks and reds with accents of oranges, yellows and purples - all in really bright and juicy shades... a really nice color combo, don't you think? Mell even came up with an additional template for the snowball unit, so the whole block can be paper pieced. This really helps with accuracy... just ask her, and I'm sure she'd be glad to pass her template along!
The second bee project has not officially been introduced, but perhaps I can whet your appetite and let you in on at least one secret... it's MINE!!!... I'm up next as the "queen bee" and you'll get to see my bee blocks in July!
Linking up this week to Let's Bee Social and Sew Cute Tuesday.
