Save The Bees Block Sew Along


Jacquelynne from The Art of Home designed this quilt to have a whimsical feel and honestly, it is a perfect fit for my sewing style. Each block is designed to be pieced and hand appliqued but instead, I infused some free motion quilting into the mix.


*Fabrics used in block include Dear Diary from Minki Kim and a few scrap pieces from my stash.

This month was all about piecing and half square rectangles. After a few quick rolls across the cutting board I was ready to sit down and sew.

Once my pieces were cut, it was all about stitching those HSR’s. If you have never made them before be sure to check out Jacquelynne’s quick video. She will help you take the tricky out of the process.
