Winter/Spring Placemats

Hello. Today is my son's 1/2 birthday so Happy 5 1/2 to Max! :)

Well, despite 2 snow days this week, 1 completely unexpected, I was able to get the tops of my aunt's placemats done. I still have to trim the top and bottom borders but that will be super quick. Then I need to finish the "spring" side, which will be a solid piece of fabric, and get them put together! Assuming the weather holds off and we have no more snow days this week, I will have these done for Friday.

I've also received a few more of my bee blocks and I'm really excited about how this quilt is going to turn out. I think it will be so cute! I'm still waiting on a few more and then I'll have to piece a few to make up the difference. I need 12 in order to complete the quilt.

I'm linking up today to Let's Bee Social and WiP Wednesday.

I hope you all have a sew crafty day!



  1. The placemats look great - your points are so crisp! Your bee blocks work so well together, that is going to be a really fun quilt. :)

  2. Lovely place-mats, and your stars are stunning. I've never seen that star block design before, but it's a winner.

  3. Very nice! Don't you love being creative when there's snow on the ground and not much else to do?! The vivid colors in your fabrics are nice and cheery!

  4. Those bee block are going to make a wonderful, colorful quilt.

  5. Those placemats are going to be lovely. I love those stars. They are all so bright and cheerful.

  6. Pretty, pretty, pretty! Love those placemats and the thoughts of each side being season appropriate. And your bee blocks are gorgeous! Such fun and bright colours. Happy 1/2 birthday, Max!!!
