Blocks galore

In between rushing to finish my swaps on time, I have also tried to catch up with blocks and most particularly bee blocks after being so slack last month. And I had quite some time for hand-sewing as I did spend quite a lot of time watching TV too (catching up with some shows or the Great British Sewing Bee!)
First there were 2 #flowersforeleni, my modest contribution to this love quilt for Eleni's family

This month I was on time for the Bee Hive block for Britta who had picked the Wanta Fanta block - when you put plenty of those together it looks like an orange peel quilt, very effective
Another advantage (or not) of organising my stash is that I have been forced to realise that I have a LOT of fabric so I should really not hesitate to CUT into it, rather than save it all for THAT perfect project which will probably never happen. So I made a bonus block for Britta, a trip around the world block in green that she is currently collecting
Next on the list, and again in an effort to sew my stash was to make some Sping Flower blocks for the Block Lotto - 9 of them. These had got me to dive into my stash of batiks and rediscover their vibrant colors. I know they are usually shunned in these days of modern quilting but I must admit, I like their colors and the effect they give
And finally I also finished my March Lucy Boston Block yesterday, ready to go!

It feels so good to have (almost) caught up with my Bee Blocks this month. A couple still to finish but I am slowly getting there. And these 14 blocks take my total for March to 26, still 4 short for the 30 needed for the 350-blocks challenge but then there is one day left ;-)

Linking to Building Blocks Tuesday.
