|revised block #1|
My first block for the Save The Bees project was posted yesterday. I hope you had a chance to visit all the featured bloggers:
- *The Crafty Quilter
- *Podunk Pretties
- *The Quilting Nook
- *The Sewing Loft
- *Freemotion by the River
- *Kathy’s Quilts (that's me!)
- *Flamingo Toes
- *A Quilting Life
After visiting all the blogs to see the other versions of block #1, I decided to make 2 changes to my block.
1) I added the flight trail from the bee using a hand embroidered running stitch. I was hesitant to add that but once I saw the other blocks I decided it was a necessary detail, and I'm happy with how it turned out.
2) I also widened the black stripes on the bee, making 3 lines of back stitch using black floss, instead of just 1 line.
Ah ... that's better now.
Make sure to leave a comment on yesterday's post to enter the draw.
I sure enjoyed reading all the "bee related" comments. If you didn't receive a reply from me, that's because you are a "no reply blogger". If you want to change that status and be able to receive messages, click here for instructions.
I had to go back and look at yesterday's bee. Yes the darker lines and the bee trail really enhance the block! It's super gorgeous now!
Oh, I like your additions!!
The flight path is great!
Looks great! I 'need' some Bee fabric. lol Don't tell the hubby.
Oh yeah that trail really tops it off!
I agree with you; your bee looks healthier today. Good call. ;^)
Yes, I do like your changes. I thought it was fine before, but these changes take it up a step.
i do like your #2 better. those little changes add alot
I love your save the bees block #1 Kathy... Glad you are a featured blog on this project :) Kathi
I agree -- your additions made your block even cuter! Love it!
I'm into bees and pollinators. This quilt is a perfect sampler to express that. Love your block.
I love your block. I did mine totally on the machine because I dont do hand embroidery.
I love how your block turned out with 5he embroidery. I did mine using a blanket stitch on the machine.
