Hexagons Bee Done and a new Blog Hop

Over the long weekend I managed to complete the June blocks for do.Good Stitches Cherish bee.
Hexagons and bees in Pale yellows, blues, creams, greys and white were requested, but hopefully the darker grey centre will sneak through!

I had a lot of fun with these. The paper pieced bee was courtesy of a free pattern from Amy at Badskirt

Also I want to let you know about the great blog hop going on over at Plum and June's, if you haven't already heard. There are a few blogs to visit each week until the end of July. A great way to find some new modern bloggy inspiration- not that there's any shortage of that, but it's always fun to discover someone else!

  2. Great blocks! Looking forward to your blog hop post :)

  3. I love these blocks! I will be checking out the blog hop, thank you.

  4. the hexagon block is so wonderful! Those are really luring me in lately;)

    Cute bee!

  5. beautiful blocks, the hexagon is my favorite, love that!
    I am stopping by from the WIP post, hop by if you get a chance!

  6. oh my goodness, these are fabulous! really great fabric choices. where can we see the whole quilt?

  7. Love your blocks - I need to try to make the bee one!

  8. Fantastic blocks! Your bee is perfect, love how you got it up to size. And it looks great with the hexie block :)

  9. I love those blocks! I have not really tried paper piecing but it is on my list of things to try!

  10. Great hexies! I've been loving yellows blues and grays lately.

  11. Your bee block is too fun. I love how you fussy cut the wings. The musical staff fabric is perfect for making a bee!

  12. Oh, oh. I've had those bees pinned to try to make soon, and yours is so cute! I am obsessed with using that white memoir print as a background fabric. I keep ordering it a yard at a time and next thing I know it's gone again. :)

  13. Your blocks look great! Perfect fabric choices

  14. Love your blocks and I see you at the end of the blog hop!

  15. These hexies are lovely - gorgeous colours :)

  16. Fabulous blocks! love the bee! Thanks for linking up :)

  17. What gorgeous blocks, I love the bee! Looking forward to seeing you on the blog hop!

  18. They are both beautiful - I love that text fabric you've chosen for the background!

    And ps - you get the Queen's Bday off in Australia? She's still ceremonially in charge of our "colony", and pictured on all of our multicoloured currency and we don't get the Queen's Bday off. However, we do get Victoria Day in May… Oh, the little differences! :-)

  19. Great blocks, Camilla! Especially the Hexi. Glad to have 'met' you through the blog hop and looking forward to your post!


  20. Very nice! Haven't attempted paper pieces as of yet.

  21. Oh i love those foundation pieced bees, they're fab! :o)

  22. I love that you made a quilt for your granny. Kelsey and I are planning a gift quilt for my Great Aunt's 90th birthday sometime later this year. I love that bee block. I've been wanting to try some paper piecing but am always afraid to actually give it a go. Maybe I'll have to dig through some tutorials, grab some scraps and see what I can come up with. Thanks for the inspiration!
