Bumble Bee Quilt Block | Blocks 2 Quilt Series

All posts may contain affiliate links.

After a few weeks of sharing patchwork blocks, I find myself missing the fun of the themed versions. I’m not sure what it is exactly but the whimsical results of creating quilt blocks from straight lines really seem to fill my creative tank. So, without further ado, let’s welcome the Bumble Bee quilt block to the series.

Add this whimsical Bumble Bee quilt block to your pattern library and join the Blocks 2 Quilt series on The Sewing Loft. Pattern includes 2 sizes. The Sewing Loft
Looking to improve your quilting skills? Join the Blocks 2 Quilt sew along. Each week a new block will be shared with complete instructions for easy sewing.

This little block was actually inspired by my friendly little carpenter bee that returns to my house every year to start a new family.

Material & Tool Supply List:

Upgrade your quilting game with the Bumble Bee quilt block. It is easy to make and perfect for scraps!

Due to the small pieces, angled trimming and bias grain, I’m labeling this block for the confident beginner. Overall, the construction is a simple patchwork but the smaller pieces can make things tricky for the newbie. I highly suggest starch!

    Hi Heather…I really appreciate you giving us the bumble bee block for free. Especially since I love everything “bee”…lol. But I have done it twice but when I go to download it from the email you send, it comes up as “404-page not found”. Wondering if you could help? I am so sorry to bother you. quilty hugs, Deb

    • Hello Deb,
      Thanks so much for the note. I am glad you are enjoying the series but sorry to hear that you are having trouble downloading. I have just resent the link to your mailbox. Please try to give it a go and let me know if you are still having issues.

    So this has happened to me also but in a kind of different way. I get an email saying ‘bumblebee Block’ and go to download it and I get, in this case, the Zinnia Flowers block and the bumble bee isn’t available for free. I just download whatever one comes up as the free one.

    • Hello Greta,
      Thank you for your note. It’s always hard to hear when people are having trouble but feedback is helpful. Throughout the Blocks 2 Quilt series, each block is available for one week. After that, it is available for purchase in the shop. I suggest that those interested sign up for my newsletter and check the site each Friday. This way, they won’t miss any of the designs. Currently, the Zinnia Flowers block is available for free. So be sure to download it before the next one is released.

      -Heather
