Let’s Bee Social #77

Posted on: June 17th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

I dug into my tiny Kona scraps and managed to cut enough pieces for 34 more Little Blooms blocks. Now all my little scraps fit into one small container. Next I will tackle my larger scraps. I’d like to add some more purples, pinks and yellows to the mix!

If you’d like to see what I’m up to each day, follow me on Instagram. I’d love to hear from you and see what you are doing too!

Along with the 30 I made previously, this brings my total to 64 of the 99 needed to make this quilt.
Only 35 more to go!

  10. Wow, that's a lot of blooms! They look lovely in your first picture. I always like seeing your blocks pictured in this fashion. And imagining the beauty of the top to come. Have a great day! 🙂

  11. Those blooms are Kona-tastic! Kudos to you for tackling the scrap bins. I might need to do that soon… more than one has a lid that won't fit on anymore. I think those scraps expand when I'm not looking.

    Love the crisp look of these blocks but can't imagine every being able to \”empty\” one of my scrap bins?!?

  13. Thank you for all your advise. I am in need of help and have one dumb question (not that any question is dumb) How do I link back up to me? Is that what is suggested? Love the colors of all the blocks you are doing and can't wait to see the finish. L
