Bee Blessed BOM - February!

It's that time of the month again to let you know what we will be making in Bee Blessed during February!

Road to Tennessee Block

This block is called Road to Tennessee, and you can find the tutorial for it over on Sarah's blog.

We are still making quilts for children at the moment, so if you wouldn't mind sticking to the 'brights' theme that we had last month, with solid white background, that would be fab!

For those of you in a bee where you make siggy blocks, you may recognise that the quadrants in this block are made up of  'siggy' blocks!

And some of you may also be aware of 'Siblings Together' starting again this year (donating quilts to siblings separated in the Care System).  Bee Blessed donated a quilt last year to Siblings Together, and we will be doing the same again this year!  So your blocks may well go even further in supporting 2 great causes!

And staying on the theme of blocks, in tonight's 'Design Your Own Quilt' class we will be making the Granny Square block, also known as Arbor Window:

12.5" Granny Square (Arbor window) Block Jan13

Most of the granny square blocks I've seen around are made up smaller than the traditional 12" block.  So I sized this one up so folks could include it in their sampler quilts.

Last week we did Bow tie and D9P, and next week - flying geese!  These are going to be fabulous sampler quilts.


  1. Ooh another bee blessed block to try! Great :-)

  2. I am going to try to get back into the swing of sending you blocks this year. Several of my other bees are ending and I am not joining any new ones. This is a fun and fast block too.

  3. This does indeed look a fun and fast block to you. I'm hoping to return to my grannies in February!

  4. Oh no I've not done January's yet. Di x

  5. Love them both! The colours are fab!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I really appreciate it & I will always reply. (If you don't get a reply from me it is because you are a 'no reply comment' blogger. You might want to change your blog settings to make sure folks can reply to your comments more easily.) Jxo
