WIP Wednesday - Sewcial Bee Sampler Block #3

 Today is week #3 in the Sewcial Bee Sampler sew along being hosted by Sharon Holland and Maureen Cracknell and this week's block is called Flock. I had a late start with this sew along ( just made my first two blocks over the weekend), but I am making up for it by finishing the third block the day of its release as a PDF! ;o)

Block #3 Flock!

I am having a wonderful time rifling through my scrap bins and using up squares and strips from other projects to make my blocks! I am aiming for having a rainbow of blocks with a salad of low volume fabrics for the backgrounds, borders and likely for the sashing as well.


Block #1, 2 & 3 of the Sewcial Bee Sampler sew along
 
It's exciting see this take shape week by week and to be whittling away at my scraps.  A block a week means that this is a very manageable pace for a quilt, allowing for me to work on other projects in between as well (thereby adding more scrappy fabric choices to future blocks... win, win! ;o)
 
Participants are sharing their blocks on Instagram (as #sewcialbeesampler) and while we wait for each new block design to be released, we are being inspired by all the beautiful versions being made.  It's a friendly, supportive sew along that I can highly recommend, whether you're new to quilting or have experience.  You can find all the information you need on either Sharon's or on Maureen's blog.
