I love classic quilt blocks and it doesn't get more classic than a log cabin block! Vickie requested this modified version, in pretty pastels (with a red center!), for her turn as Queen in the Rainbow Bee for November.

The second online quilt bee I have been sewing blocks for this year, is the Rainbow Bee and I have had the pleasure of stitching with a talented and global group of ladies! For the month of October, Queen Bee, Jasmine selected the Ray Quilt block and requested a rainbow of soft colours for the center of these paper pieced blocks, mixed with happy low volume fabrics for the "rays".

|Soft romantic pinks and creamy low volume prints were selected for this version of the Treasure Hunt block, which I made and sent to Jennifer.|
If you are looking for a simple, yet striking foundation paper piecing pattern, this block is for you! The Treasure Hunt block is given as a free pattern on Alyce's blog, Blossom Heart Quilts and was selected as the block to sew in July, in the Pink Bee 2019.

|A mix of saturated and soft pinks paired with a variety of low volume prints for the background, make for a fun version of the Sideways Arrow Block!|
I have diligently been sewing and sending off quilt blocks all year, as a participant in two online quilt bees. However, surprisingly, I have not blogged about all the blocks that I have made. Time to change that!
It will not be a surprise, that I made my version of the Sideways Arrow block, as scrappy as I could for my pink sampler quilt. This block can be found in the book, Modern Quilts Block by Block written by Emily Dennis and it was the choice for February in the Pink Bee 2019.

|I sewed a strawberry frosted chocolate layer cake block to send to Queen Bee, Ayna for her month in the Pink Bee 2019!😍|
The block chosen for the month of August in the Pink Bee, was the Farm Girl Layer Cake block - designed by Lori Holt from Bee in My Bonnet (click here for the free tutorial to make this block). August happens to be Ayna's and my birthday month, so how appropriate to be sewing cake blocks for both of us (her's was made and sent within August and mine came together a bit later...).

|I reversed the order of the ombre strips in the making of the scrappy version that I am keeping.|
November brought another new-to-me quilt block to sew, in the #pinkbee2019 - one of the online quilting bees that I am participating in. It was another opportunity to gather and sew with pretty pinks and a variety of low volume fabrics! I sewed two versions of the Ombre Heart quilt block, one to send the Queen bee of November and one to be added to my sampler quilt.
