Busy Bee-ing

I've been busy running kids to various summer fun.  But I have managed to get my bee blocks done for this month.  Here are Liz's blocks for Twist on Traditon.
 And Jen's blocks for Sew Bee Wonky  I have a little more of the blue so I might make another smaller wonky star.  After all they are so fun to make.
 And these cute checker board blocks are for Anna in my Twice as Nice Bee.
 I had a little hiccup with these.  She had sent 2 1/2" stirps and asked for checker board blocks.  So I started cutting 2 1/2" blocks.  Just as I was starting to sew them together I read through the directions and found that she wanted the blocks to be cut to 2" squares.  Fourtunately I had enough fabirc to make both blocks despite my little mess up. 
Note to self Always read directions first.  Or as my sixth grade teacher Mr. Moss used to say, "If all else fails read the directions."  When will I ever learn?

  5. Those are all lovely blocks. Aren't instructions there to read after you've had a go yourself, then get stuck? Or is that just me? lol

  7. I often don't read the directions also. You'd think I'd learn! I love all your blocks. Especially the checkerboard one.
