My Spelling Bee book arrived and although the sew-along won’t start until October I couldn’t help myself.
|So much fun in a spiral bound book.|
I am making the Picture Day Quilt (page 158 of the book) which uses 20 pictures blocks. I am using 6" blocks and have made three to date......
Block 1 – Apple Block. Very quick, very simple – a perfect start to this project.

Block 2 – Bee Block. Love this block and it went together quite well except for the head. I think the H squares that you sew onto the head are too big – they result in a pointy face for this bee – not at all like the book.
So I cut those the background H squares to 7/8” square. It worked well. (I kept the H blocks as per the size in the book for the top of the wing.)

Block 3 – Bird Block. Another easy and very well written block pattern. The head looks a bit strange but it will flatten when it is stitched in with the other blocks.

I am trying to make a block a day so do come back and check at the weekend to see how its going. Until then .....................
