Bee Block Bonanza!

I support 2 charity quilting groups - Bee Blessed and Siblings Together.

This means making different blocks for them each month, which is a non-demanding way of supporting these wonderful causes.

Here is a wee round up of my recent bee blocks.

In Bee Blessed, we were making Woven blocks in pastels for September .....

Bee Blessed Blocks (Sept16)

.... and Wonky Cross blocks in 'male appropriate' colours for October.

In Siblings Together Bee 2 I got to set the block for September, and requested Canvas blocks, in any 2 colour-ways.  Here are what I have received from the other ladies in the bee:

Canvas blocks for STB2 Sept16

I only need to make 5 more blocks, and after putting it out for consultation (asking a few sewing friends on FB!) it was decided that I should make the remaining blocks in purple, yellow, pink & green!

Oct16 STB2 blocks for Jenny/Lilac Cat

October's blocks in STB2 are these fabulously scrappy 16" blocks.  These were so much fun to make, because they were scrappy (my fav) and the irregular improv angles meant they were super quick too!

So that's me up-to-date with my bee commitments!

And it's half-way through October already!  So I'll leave you with a few of my recent Autumn pics!
