Bee Blocks Update


A little while back there was a huge earthquake in New Zealand, near Christchurch where the wonderful Deb from Works in Progress lives. She has a giving heart and wanted to do something for those that lost everything....she started a earthquake quilts project, and asked for a little help.


I was able to make up a few blocks to send to her this week. She specifically requested that they be in blues and reds. I hope that they work out Deb, i enjoyed making them.
The first two were made from a simple tutorial she provided in case we were stuck and could not think of what to make.


These wonky stars were made for Deb from my favorite star tutorial at Silly Boo Dilly blog. They always turn out amazing and i always love them!


These last three blocks are for my vintage sheet freedom bee, also started by Deb. I am plugging my way through them so that i can be done in time to have them back to all the other ladies before i have this baby.

another soccer's mom nephew is doing missionary work in Christchurch-fortunately, he was on holiday in Sydney when the quake struck. you amaze me that with everything going on in your life, you still find time to think of others and make such beautiful blocks.

you know I love the vintage blocks! what lucky bee partners you have!

Cute blocks! I have never done a bee. I'd be too afraid I wouldn't get the blocks done!
