SNTM Virtual Quilting Bee : August

Sew New to Me - August

August was Lisa’s month for our quilting bee. Her theme was “birds, branches and bungalows”. (She has an adorable bungalow.) She sent some great fabrics that really started getting me in the mood for fall. I decided to make a branch modeled after Elizabeth from Oh, Fransson’s Birch Quilt. Are you seeing a theme here? When in doubt for a bee block, refer to Elizabeth Hartman. LOL

This block was a lot trickier than I had anticipated. Even after marking all the pieces, it was still like jigsaw puzzle, figuring out the layout again. I should have taken a photo of the design first. Then, I really had to plan the order I needed to sew the pieces together in order to avoid any pesky Y-seams. But isn’t that what bee’s are about? Push and challenge ourselves?

Lisa, I hope you enjoy your block!
