June Bee Blocks

For June I only had to sew for two bee mates, since I get to be on the receiving end in the Stitch Tease Bee. My blocks have been arriving and I m going to have a gorgeous array of intersection blocks to assemble soon.

For Bee Sewcial, Debbie asked for Mid-Century Modern blocks. My son, who is a mid-century fan, suggested using Breeze Brick as ispiration. I found this photo on Pinterest and tried to make two of the blocks. I used the middle, far right photo and also the bottom right to make these blocks.
The fans were a down-sized version of Latifah's Molehills pattern, made into a rectangle block.

For Stash Sew-ciety, Lori asked us to make a block of her own design. This was a really fun block to make and Lori got to have 11 pattern testers. I think her colors and pattern work well together.

Finding time to sew has been difficult lately. It seems all I have time or energy for is getting my monthly commitments of bee blocks finished. I am hoping a summer break and a little time away from the machine will bring new inspiration.

I hope your summer is off to a good start.

I really admire your creative 'take' on those breeze blocks! They are very clever and quite distinctive Di! And Lori's pattern is a beauty too! Take your time and re-charge the batteries...you deserve it!

Your blocks are beautiful! I hope you can enjoy your sewing more too, but summer is also a nice time to be in the garden and out and about.
