July Bee Blocks

The plan for the week was to quilt a top using what I had learned in the class at Sisters, and then the next project was to make my Bee blocks. Three quarters of the way through the quilting and the end of the week modified my plans. The Bee blocks had a time frame; the quilting did not. Besides, I was practicing, not racing. 🙂

I read the original of the pattern, here, then printed out the paper piecing form.  Since I’d not done paper piecing for a LONG time, I did a trial run before going to Sisters.

I had a wee bit of pink left and added green and added the block to the June Block Lotto package.I managed to remember the steps of the paper piecing process and relaxed.

Last night I shifted from quilting to paper piecing and made my two Bee blocks.

The practice one went together more smoothly than the real one; it often seems to happen that way.  Still they are finished and in the mail.

Now, to return the quilting foot to the machine or to piece a bit more ?. . . leaning to the latter.
