Sewcial Bee Sampler Week 21

Another week has zipped by! Time for the next block to be released in The Sewcial Bee Sampler (a fun online sew along), hosted by Sharon Holland and Maureen Cracknell. The block for this week is an Hourglass.  (for the free download to make this or the previous blocks, visit Maureen's or Sharon's blog).
Block 20, Hourglass for Sewcial Bee Sampler
If you're following along, you know that my plan for this sew along is to make blocks using my scraps and to make the overall colour theme for this quilt, a rainbow. So far, so good! This block will be the second one to use the colour purple and considering that this is not a popular colour in my stash, my block was made mostly from fabrics that I have received in swaps over the years.  It feels like an achievement that I found enough purple fabrics to make this block happen!

Rather than share a mosaic of all 21 blocks together, I will just link to last week's post for that.  I have decided that for the final row of blocks, I'm going to skip sharing a mosaic to build up a little anticipation for the finish. ;o)

Pop over to Maureen's blog and Sharon's blog  for all the details in joining this fun,  sew-at-your-own-pace, virtual sew along! It doesn't matter if you're new to quilting or if you're experienced - this sew along is geared to be fun and manageable for all skill levels. The best part is the community of support you will be a part of! It's unbelievable - truly makes it so enjoyable! If you're on Instagram, you can find all the inspiring blocks that are being made shared under the tag #sewcialbeesampler - although I will warn you, it will be difficult to resist joining in, once you see so many beautiful versions.


  1. I love how you were able to play with value in your placements, despite not having much purple to choose from. I've been waiting for the purple blocks to catch up, knowing that the blocks are coming to an end.

  2. You have some great fabrics in your stash for this sampler.

  3. Looking good! It will be fun waiting to see them all together at the end!


Go ahead...say something! Got a question for me? Ask it! I can't wait to hear from you... so start writing... and thanks in advance for letting me know you're sharing in my online adventures. Hugs and happiness to you!
