WIP Wednesday 7.13.11

What a good sewing week.
Twitter, rocking out, and sewing.  Oh the girls life!


A few bee blocks
The past June blocks that I blogged about here

June - {Modern 12}I also added this cute Snail Trail block because I was so late in getting my blocks out to my {Modern 12} bee-mate.

Sew Modern Quilt Bee

Monday was a busy day as I also had to finish up a flower for a few bee blocks.  There were some awesome fabric flowers but I decided I wanted to knit something up for Issabella the Cat.

Here's the flower I whipped up {took me much longer than I anticipated}

July - Sew Modern Bee
July - Sew Modern BeeI haven't been able to work on a garden fence before.  These fabrics were cut out so perfectly it was a dream!

Can you see my goof on the block to the right?  I didn't until seeing in the photo.  The small pieces don't match up.  Ugh!  But the queen bee said not to worry about it! So I won't. :) 

I also finished up the sewing of  2 mug rugs I have started {no photos please - they are supposed to be suprise} What to do for the stitching. . ohhh dear!
