Bee Happy Sew Along - Week One!!
I am so excited!! Our Bee Happy Sew Along is HERE! Are you ready?! Let's get started...
Please note: Lori originally did this Sew Along in 2017. Some of the fabric that she used at that time is no longer available. Fabrics in your kit were provided based on the Bee Happy Booklet fabric requirements. As you follow Lori's blog throughout the Sew Along some of the fabrics you see in her pictures may be different than the fabrics that we are using.
Here is our schedule:
This week we are working on these blocks:
- Sunshine Block
- Two Trees Block
- Tulip Pot Block
- Pinwheel Blocks
Lori gives instruction through her blog. Click HERE for the Sunshine, Two Trees and Tulip Pot Blocks. And click HERE for the Pinwheels Blocks.
First up is the Sunshine Block:
Next, the Two Trees Block:
Tulip Pot Block:
Note: for this block we are missing the orange plaid for the pot lid. I have all of my pieces cut and ready to go. I am going to make this block and add the lid once the fabric arrives. You can always choose a substitute fabric as well. This is the block I am going to work on for our Bee Happy LIVE this week!
I hope you can join me for our Bee Happy LIVE on Wednesday, 6/22 at 1:30pm CT. Click HERE to join.
This is the PERFECT summer quilt to make! And you guys...it is totally manageable! As you can see from my pictures I have tried to get outside to enjoy the weather while making these blocks. I hope you will have some fun with me and get your blocks outside for photos. Share the beautiful landscape around you so we can all enjoy summer and our creations together! Be sure to share to social media using #beehappysewalong and #happylittlestitchshop and tag Happy Little Stitch Shop and Lori Holt!
Have fun! Enjoy the process! And 🐝😁!!
I’m all up today. Added to a couple of the blocks. Just need to post pictures. Just haven’t had the time. Hopefully by this weekend.
YAY! My Happy Mail arrived! It was delivered SEW quick and in pristine condition due to the care HLSS took in packaging it, thank you Angela! The fabric is beautiful and your blocks are so cute Angela. I am starting the starching and cutting this weekend. I am SEW Happy!
Is it too late to get a kit and participate in this sew-along? It is sooo cute!!! I completely missed the info on this before today. 😔
This quilt makes me want to become a quilter. Adorable! I would love this quilt as a cross stitch pattern. It’s so cute! Love following everyone’s progress.
Yay!! So excited. I am almost done with the starching, cutting, and sorting. Can’t wait to start working on the blocks!!
