May Primary Bee Blocks!

Tiny's a block head here

Just kidding!  Peek-a-boo.

Here's Mowg so happy to be taking a picture

Happier still when he gets to do his own bunny ears.

This month is for Heather's daughter Sarah on her blog found here.  This was a fun block to do.  Both kids said, "Really? We're done already?!"  I really loved this block.   We sent them on their way this afternoon.   As always we hope she likes them!

Primary Bee Blocks
This month is Lisa's daughters turn and she choose the Bento Block with pink, purple and yellow as her colors.  I tried the tutorial I mentioned in my last post from Red Pepper Quilts and determined that the strip piecing method I used last month was much more effective for our sewing time.  It allowed me to section the sewing time so the kids didn't get too overwhelmed.  I did have a few adjustments to her instructions.  She tells you to cut one 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" strip before you sew the two colors together.  You actually need two.  Other than that it was pretty straight forward and I was able to stay organized this time and I think they did a pretty good job.
Tiny gives new meaning the term "Block Head"

Here's Mowg's block
You can't see it in this picture, but the yellow has sparkly dots--not fairy frost sparkly, more subtle. 

We were a little late for April--but they went in the mail today.
Hope you like them!
