Quilty Fun Sew Along: Bumble Bee Block

Welcome to the second to last stop of the blog tour for Quilty Fun Sew Along

I made a bumble bee block which will be a label for your quilt. 
Lori's instruction was so clear and great I was able to put it together fairly quickly. 

It is such an adorable pattern! You will have so much fun making it!

The cutting instruction + embroidery template PDF can be downloded here, but
you will still need the book, Quilty Fun, to get the main instruction to make it. 

As you know, there are some great prizes for you if you sew along and post your
progress in this Flickr group.

One winner will receive a packet of Alphabitties, and
 two winners will receive a 10” stacker of Vintage Happy

The three winner will be chosen from the pool of submissions on the Flickr group 
and will be announced on the Jolly Jabber on the following Monday.

Good luck everyone!


The winner of the giveaway on my last post is...
Pierro of Rosemary B!

Congratulations, Rosemary!! I will contact you soon!

I so appreciate every one of you who kindly shared your tricks/tips
to find the time to sew. I am sorry I am not able to reply to all of you.
Squeezing in some sewing time in the day has become difficult for me
now that my baby girl has so much energy to crawl around everywhere.
I guess I'll have to get better at time management!



  1. love that she's not letting go of that chocolate bumble bee which is almost as cute as yours !

  2. So cute! And looks like bee #2 holds far more interest for the wee one ;o)

  3. I can't wait to get this SAL done and quilted. It has been SEW much Fun! Glad you took time to play along. Hope to win some of the Vintage Happy fabric. Thanks

  4. Ayumi, I am very glad to have found time to see this delightful post. Finding time for quilting or knitting is entirely another category of time managing.

    The bee quilt square is a fine design...very clear, very well sewn, and very evocative to all of us to our bee contacts. Looks as if little Honoka is already forming her own sweet bee connections.

    Those little fingers are even sweeter than the chocolate. xo

  5. Oh my gosh!!
    I just received your blog update... I immediately saw that little girl hand and as usual, I read your blog in my email from the bottom to the top. Hey! I know that Rosemary B girl! She loves your blog and you, sweet friend
