Though I had great fun over the weekend creating my Mini Saltwater quilt and it piqued my interest in sewing again, I found that the back-to-work days this week have been pretty exhausting. Wanting desperately to make progress even though I couldn't yet face any of my w.i.p.s, I decided bee blocks might be manageable. They were.
For FAITH Circle, I made 4 Patchwork Chevron blocks using a tutorial by In Color Order. These were a great place to start, and I like the palette we were given to work in.
I was kind of apprehensive about the Pineapple Blossom blocks we were asked to make in That Stash Bee. But Quiltville's tutorial made it easy, and these blocks went together quite quickly. Again, the palette made these extra fun, and I really enjoyed them.
The Mid-Century Modern bee was asked for Union Jack blocks, one I've been wanting to try for a long time. Molli Sparkles' tutorial was terrific, and I really love the unique size of this block.
So sooner or later, I really need to face some more complicated projects. And some deadlines. But these were certainly a pleasant diversion...
