Buzzy Bee Block (Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt)

The Scrappiness is Happiness quilt along starts today and I'm so excited to share that I'll be joining Lori Holt, the Fat Quarter Shop and a number of quilty bloggers in this fun project.

The quilt along will run for the next 31 weeks and we'll be sharing a block each Monday. The first block, from the Lori Holt's new book, Scrappiness is Happiness, is called the Buzzy Bee Block. Cute right?

We are sewing with any fabrics we choose - it can be a complete range, a mix of different ranges, or completely scrappy. I decided to go with some Lori Holt prints from her Bee Cross Stitch range of fabric along with a few solids. I don't have a plan for each fabric just yet, but chose a variety of colours to work with.

You can find quilting fabric and quilting supplies for your project at Fat Quarter Shop.

If you'd like to join in the scrappy happy fun, you can find all of the details over at The Jolly Jabber with links on fabrics, the quilt along pattern along with the new book which includes all of the block instructions.

  1. I got that book before I went on a vacation and then got sick - I had forgotten about it until someone else mentioned it today - I need to look again at it - I have some of the fabric with the little x's I have been using it off and on all week

  2. Your block is so pretty and vibrant. Love your cute Bee block!
