Lots of bee blocks

Recently got almost all caught up on my bee blocks! I do so enjoy the process of being in bees. Small projects! Blocks for Ashley for Block Party – she’s not going to use sashing when she assembles the blocks, so I hope the white and pink frame works! Carol‘s blocks for 12 Squared: And […]
