Next week I am taking part in Jacquelynne Steve’s FREE block of the month, Save The Bees.
The Block Of the Month patterns are free but you must sign up to receive them by email. Be sure to visit this page on her website and get signed up. You are going to really enjoy this! Did I mention that there will be giveaways!
It won’t surprise you to know that I decided to use Island Batik fabrics for my Save The Bees quilt project. So far these are the batiks I have picked and used in block 1.
I can’t resist showing you a little peek at my block! There just might be a little bee in it! Several of the blocks have applique in them which can be done by hand or by machine. I am using my vintage 15-91 Singer which is only a straight stitch sewing machine so I decided to finish my applique with some free motion raw-edge applique.
