Sew Sweet Bee Blocks

Happy Friday sweet blogging friends.

The birds are cherping outside and it
sounds so good.

I am a little behind on posting about the
Sew Sweet Bee blocks I made.

In February Alicia was Queen Bee, she asked 
for heart blocks in pretty floral's.  She picked this
 pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew very easy to make.  
Alicia does not have a blog but she is on InstaGram 
if you want to see more of her blcoks she is under 

March Queen Bee was Cathy over at A Quilting Chick.
She asked for 30's fabric.  My favorite!  At first this
block was scary.  But once I figured it out it was mostly
1/2 squares triangles.  Easy peasy.  This block is called
Star Surround by Happy Quilting Melissa.

If you are leary about making half square triangles
you shouldn't be.  They are easy once you figure
out how to square them up.  I have a tutorial here 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
