Cinco de Mayo eve sewing

My bee for the apple bees block…for some reason the camera chewed off the corner…None the less I really like the way this turned out!  The blue is from a swappin’ friend who sent me some extras with the block she made me.  This wee block is about 5 inches square. All piecing was done by hand. I may be adding some embroidery for antennae but haven’t decided yet…

The pattern is from Piece by Number: http://piecebynumber.com/pastbom/beepatt.htm

Finished May 4th 2010

 

The completed Apple Bees block for my SWGWSW quilt…I’ve had the bumble bee fabric forever and finally had a perfect block for it!  The 2 small blocks were done by hand, and the block construction done on the machine. Finished Block is 12.5 square

Apple patter is from Sew Hooked: http://www.sewhooked.org/paper_piecing/img/paper_piecing/edited/5_inch_apple.jpg

Bee pattern from piece by number: http://piecebynumber.com/pastbom/beepatt.htm

Both patterns are free in the web.

Block completed on May 4th 2010

 

Splayed Shamus…this is who spreads out behind me on the floor while I sew…just waiting for an iota of attention…or better yet a massive pile of wrestling…poor Shamus has absolutely no toys! He’s the furry son we always wanted and the irritating little brother Jazmin could live without most of the time…LOL
