WIP Wednesday

I've had a busy week of sewing and my craft room currently looks like a hurricane hit it. Guess it's time to go clean!

I finished my November bee block for Newbee Quilters Hive 5. Liz chose the Ribbon Star block in fall colors for her month. So pretty! I really love this block and may just have to make a quilt using it for myself some day!

I also was able to make another Rocky Mountain Puzzle block for my bee quilt. I've had this print from Alexander Henry's Once Upon a Time line in my stash for a while and thought one of the princess's would make a lovely fussy cut center. I'm really happy with how this block turned out - it's so cheerful!

Next up is a spool block. I kept seeing the cutest spools popping up on flickr but couldn't find a tutorial. I finally broke down and worked out the measurements for myself. The block measures a bitty 6.5" so I'm going to need a ton of them if I want to make a quilt! I think this one will go on the back burner until after the holidays. I'm still trying to decide if I want to use all black fabrics for the spool ends, or if I want to mix it up a bit. I'm leaning towards all black, but I don't actually have a lot of black fabrics in my stash. Hmmm. Maybe this would make a good bee block?

There are several other projects I've been working on, but since they will be holiday gifts, I won't be showing them yet. :)

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.
