Busy As A Bee... No, Really!?!

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.


  1. I like the look of the Bee blocks! Good luck with the move.

  2. This looks awesome- the secondary patterns in this quilt is cool. Colours are lovely :) Good luck with the move

  3. Beautiful fabrics and design. Hope the move goes smoothly and as planned.

  4. Love your Wanta Fanta blocks - I've made them twice recently for my Queen Bees. Very interested to see what you have chosen for your month ..... I'm Queen this month for one of my bees and it has been such a delight to receive beautiful blocks through the post.

  5. These blocks are gorgeous! Good luck with your move! :)

  6. I loove your blocks! They look so great - it will be really fun to see the quilt come together.

  7. Those Wanta Fanta blocks look great, I love the color combo! This block is a great idea for a bee block - I might choose it when it's my turn in my bee group next time :-) So many possibilities... I'm curious to see what you will be asking for in July! But until then I wish you good luck and good nerves - moving is always a challenge, isn't it? But also the beginning of something new...
