August Bee Blocks

I've been a busy bee! I recently completed all my bee blocks for the month of August, so I could free up some time for other projects in the works.

First up is the Newbee Hive #7 block. The Queen wanted a Wonky Pinwheel block with a color scheme of grey, pink and yellow.

I have been wanting to try this block out for quite some time, so I was excited my hive mate picked it for her month. It was very easy and fun to make. I love the color scheme, and I am not a big fan of yellow but this is just pretty.

I also completed my ThreadDivas bee block for August. The Queen requested a Donut Block, she provided the instructions. Her color scheme was red and white. She was gracious enough to send us out the small red squares for the block so that we could match colors for her red and white quilt to be.

I love the red she chose. It's a deep cranberry red. I made up some small pinwheel blocks with the cut off corners of the snowballed blocks to send along. I am excited to see her quilt finished. I have added a red and white quilt to my "to do" list. I don't know about you but my "to do" list is an ever growing one. I'll be lucky to finish it up by the time I'm 95.

I've also been working on a Union Jack Pillow for the Pillow Pop Sew Along on ThreadBias. I did mine a little different than in the book but I am happy with the results so far.

Instead of making a bunch of little Union Jack's I made one big one for the front. You can find the pattern over at Mollie Sparkles blog here. I should be finishing this up soon!

I have a lot more planned to do this week, but we will see how that goes as this is also the first week back to school for the kiddos. Yikes!! Wish us all luck!

I'd love to know what you are working on this week!
