~ Save The Bee's ~ Block 3 ~ GIVEAWAY! ~

Hi Happy Quilters! Today I'll be sharing my block 3 for the Save the Bee's FREE Block of the Month.  There's still time to join in the fun if you haven't already.  Each month we also have a giveaway on each featured blog.  Details at the end of this post.

I'm having so much fun making each block into a small wall hanging for my mini's wall in the studio.   You can see my block 1 here and block 2 here.   My plan was to use only scraps from my Lakehouse Drygoods scrap bins.  The hexies were cut and ready. 

Then while online shopping for another project I stumbled upon the the cutest prints at
Janum Fabrics.  
In my defense, Janum has great sales often, and these were all at sweet prices.  The black stripe was the only one needed the rest was impulse buys.  Lecien fabrics play so well with Lakehouse Drygoods so I had to have it!

A little large scale fussy cutting to make the roses fit perfectly.  

There is so much going on in the fabric that very little quilting was needed.  The largest stitch on my sewing machine outlining a few of the hexie's added just the right amount of interest and enough to hold it all together.

Normally on small quilts like this a smaller binding looks great, but I felt the standard size quilt binding would give the wall hanging a nice frame.  The cute little gingham is a Lakehouse Drygoods print from the scrap bin.  The same large stitch on the binding to keep a uniform look.   As many of you know I'm no fabric snob.  If I can put a stitch in it, it can be in my quilts.   From designer fabrics, sheets and clothes to Walmart and Joann fabrics, I'll use them all!  The aqua dots used in the border and backing is from Walmart.  It's a great basic print by Waverly fabrics.

  1. Thank you so much for admitting to being a "fabric queen!" I enjoy fabrics no matter where they come from as well! I just seem never to keep up with designer names and brands in the fabrics so it is difficult for me to promote them :)

  2. Very pretty mini. I will have to check out Wal-Mart for that dot, love the color ;)

  3. Your mini quilt turned out so pretty.

  4. Very cute, Lea Anne. And I love the fabric you chose!

  5. Your blocks is so very very pretty.

  6. Thanks for sharing your blocks!

  7. Love your fussy cut rose project! Thanks for sharing.

  8. I've never been a Fabric Snob either. When I first started quilting, I had not heard of "Designer Fabrics". All my fabrics came from Hobby Lobby, Walmart & the old Hancock Fabrics (now closed, Sad). And I am really liking the Waverly Solids from Walmart. I do purchase Designer Fabrics online but only when on sale. My favorite words - 50% off!

  9. Thank you for sharing your lovely block

  10. This is so lovely with these roses!
