The kids and I started to pull the fabrics for the March Primary Bee block and I realized that I never posted about the January and February blocks. Oops! I'm blaming in on being sick last month. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
For January, Mawg who's mom Chiska blogs over at Muddy Spring requested a Log Cabin block in Red, Brown and Green. Here is Sunshine working on hers. She is starting to get better at where to put her hands to guide it along the 1/4" foot.
And here is the really proud little girl with the completed block. She said "this block is really hard cause it has a lot of pieces."
Looking at that picture I notice that it looks like the 1st round is the same fabrics but in fact they aren't. The palest Green fabric is just close in tone to the palest Tan one on the other side of the Red center square.
Here is Jammer with his completed block. He was in a bit of a mood and didn't want me to take any pictures during but I did convince him to let me take one after it was done and before it went in the mail, on its way to Mawg to be put together into the completed quilt.
The Bee Princess for February was Monkey. Her mom Nikita blogs over at Monkey and I. She chose the Rail Fence block in Hot Pink, Purple and Blue. Sunshine was up first; she is always willing to sew with Mom. Here she is again concentrating really hard on keeping the fabric lined up nicely as she guides it along.
A little pressing and a couple more seams sewn later, here it is all done.
Wow, again I notice a lot of tone similarity in the block, at least in this picture but really...it is 2 different fabrics, one Purple and one Blue. I think taking these pictures inside is affecting how they come across on the net.
Jammer was up next and again he didn't want me taking pictures while he worked. I sure hope that won't be the norm for the rest of the year but again he at least let me take a picture before it went in the mail to Monkey.
Sunshine is the Bee Princess for March so we'll be working on her own block and Jammer's block soon plus we will be showing you her bee mates' blocks as they come in. She is pretty excited that this month she will be able to keep the block she makes instead of having to send it off to someone else. I'm linking up today with Anything Goes Monday
