I accidentally joined another quilt-along. I definitely have a problem! Let me explain.... it's the Bee-utiful quilt along host on the Moda Bakeshop blog. I can't remember where I saw the first block, but I know that by the time I did, the second block had already been released. The first block featured a cat. Mia loves cats.
The original project is 20 embroidered blocks set in a quilt. The theme is bees and there is a bee in each block. I'm not keen on bees, but cats...
I thought it would be a nice block to make for her, so I shrunk the design by 50% and stitched it up. Then I tried to decide what to do with it. Middle of the night bottles have their uses and I decided to add a scrappy border to make it up to a 6" block.
I've also stitched up a second block.
I'm not keen on all the blocks in this project, but I think I can find nine to stitch up and add a similar scrappy border. I sorted some scraps into colours at the weekend to help out with this project and I'll be prepping the rest for some holiday sewing.
Linking up with Scraptastic Tuesday!
