Busy as a Bee - June block completed

It is exciting (to me, anyway) to be at the 11th of June and able to say I have completed my bee block commitment for the month. I suppose it helps a little (a lot!) that the Happiness circle of Do Good Stitches is taking the month of June off.

Last year, I participated in the Plum and June New Blogger Hop and it was a great experience. Afterward, some of the participants wanted to remain in touch and decided to start a bee with other new blog hop bloggers. There was sufficient interest to start a Canadian circle with a few spaces left over for friends from around the globe. We named ourselves the Global Scrap Bee and have been going strong since September.

This month, our queen bee is Barb and she chose the Liberated Wedding Ring block made with this tutorial from Little Miss Shabby. This block was simple and fun to make.

I look forward to seeing her finished quilt!

The New Blogger Blog Hop is going on right now, in fact it just got started last week. You should definitely check out Plum and June to see the gorgeous Oakshott projects featured in today's post, but you should also visit the new bloggers and give them some love - this week's list can be found here.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Barb's block is on my to do list for the next few days... just have to finish those pesky report card comments! Yours turned out beautifully! And thanks for plugging the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop. I'm not up until July, but I'm enjoying checking out everyone's blogs!

  2. That is definitely a scrap busting block! It's so vibrant! I think I'll have to give it a try, because I definitely have a scrap problem.

  3. So glad picked this tutorial, loving how your block turned out!
