June Bee Blocks, a new quilt forming and lazy summer days

Goodness, time has passed since my last post!

I am for sure caught up in the laziness of summer.   It’s definitely a nice time to enjoy a slower pace.

Regardless of my lack of writing, there is still sewing going on.  Relaxation for me can’t happen without some stitching!


Here’s a recap of the bee blocks I’ve made for June:

Threadheads Bee. – Chelsea asked us for a Starburst Block using the tutorial from Film in the Fridge.



{Modern 12} Bee – Crystal asked for a Snail Trail block



and for the Simply Strings Bee. – Kelly asked for us to take the gray block she sent and create string pieced circles to applique on top.  We could do one or more and place them at random.   Can’t wait to see how these all look together!



I was on a block roll, so I decided to try my hand at a block I’ve been wanting to do for awhile.    This is pattern from a book I have that is filled with older traditonal blocks.   It’s called the Wheel of Fortune or the Road to Fortune.    I LOVE this so much and can’t wait to have a finished quilt.



Have you been stitching anything fun these past few weeks?


P.S.  I’m still waiting on Moda so that I can get my tutorial posted for you guys.  I will have it up as soon as I can, I apologize for the delay!

  1. This makes me want to quilt, but then I would have to learn how first 🙂

  2. When we get together again, I’d love to see the book that last block came from. They’re all beautiful!

  3. Oh your block for Chelsea turned out super. Mine, not so much. I feel terrible so I am sending her some fabric pieces to do another. Hate it that the points did not align well on mine.

    LOVE your final block- so lovely and vibrant. Can’t wait to see that as a quilt!

    • oh, no! I did have to pull mine apart the first time and ended up cutting out a paper block the finished size + seam allowances, cut it in half and than paper pieced it. It was a tricky one, so please know I had trouble too!

  4. Love these blocks, Lindsey, especially the Road to Fortune block. So pretty!

  6. i love those string bees! so unique!

  7. Wheel of fortune is very cool! Just happens to be the Flint Family past time at 7 p.m. every night (maybe I shouldn’t have admitted that). Everything looks fabulous as usual! You’re my hero… I don’t see how you have time to do all that you do!
