Despite a bit of a brain meltdown while trying to work on my 3 x 6 Bee Blocks (that’s what doing complicated blocks at night will do to you!), I was finally able to get some of them complete. Not all of course…that would be miraculous. But I’m halfway done. Woohoo! I need to send them in the mail which is really easy because you can just pop these in a regular envelope and set them out for the postman. Our mail came early today or I would have gotten them out. LOL.
Some of you might remember when I was working on this pattern before. It’s one of my own and I’m not currently sharing. 😉 I would like to do my own tutorial for a set in pieced circle because I think that it’s interesting to see what works for someone. I looked at a lot of different tutorials over the past few years for the best way to put circles into a quilt and right now this is definitely a favorite. So, promises promises…but I do hope to get a tutorial up for you all soon. I took the photos and everything, but of course, now I want to tweak it and I think that I need to redo all those. LOL. Can we say, perfectionist? No really, I just want to be as clear as possible and as helpful as possible…so it needs a little work before I set out to explain the method to my madness. But enough chatter…what are these blocks that I’m rambling on about? Well…they are these. 😉
Do you like them? The piecing of the interior circle with the twelve matching points is pretty d*!m difficult. And that of course is why I have made so many (I also made one for me and a few others…). I needed to perfect it for a super-secret sewing project…ooohhh…ahhhh….so mysterious. LOL. But that part is not necessary to learn how to piece a circle inside a square, which is really what I want to share with you all. So remind me to get that done!
Three more of these babies to go. Hopefully, they’ll be considered worth the wait.
