Moving twice in the month of May, meant I had some quilt bee block sewing to catch up on. Let's start with the block that Teri chose for us to sew for the month of June.

My favourite patchwork is scrappy. Pair that with the delight I have in re-purposing items and you end up with a sweet zipper pouch!

I chose low volume (fabric that reads as white) scraps, to sew onto a leftover piece of quilt batting. After piecing, I did some straight stitch quilting and then cut a front and back panel for the pouch.

Prior to moving at the end of April, I was happy to sew a couple of rainbow coloured, scrappy quilt blocks for the second quilt bee I joined this year. The block is called Scrap Jar Star and Amber at Gigi's Thimble, has a wonderful tutorial (click here), for making them.

It's no secret! I love sewing gifts for others. It is one of my favourite ways to show a little of love. Planning what to make and selecting just the right fabrics to suit the recipient, always makes me happy as I think about the person I am sewing for. It's even more exciting when the gift IS a secret!
