Half-Way There Lovely Finish

My April Lovely Finishes goal is to get my 3x6 Mini Quilt Sampler Bee Blocks done. I've gotten the paper pieced blocks done. This is a design that I came up with myself after doodling and drawing, measuring and dividing shapes. I love how paper piecing come together with little shapes.

I am so in love with how these ones turned out! Look at how the seams match up! And even the cream colored Tula Pink Salt Water print matches up as well. I may or may not have leaned down to it when the seam was done and whispered, "I love you." 

Now the recipient wanted calm colors in indigo, jade, ash, aqua and cream and she said she liked Tula Pink. I got a bee in my bonnet, ha!, made the block entirely out of Tula fabrics.  A little overboard but I like it :)  Here's the block before trimming then after trimming.

Rainbow with black background

Hot colors like red, orange, yellow and pink

Greens and Blues

Rainbow colors and white background

Cobalt with black and white

So that means I'm half way there. That's exciting and sad since the other half were due already and I haven't gotten them done yet. I got a cold that's not going away any time soon and that makes everything move at the pace of cold molasses. Plugging along though :) You can go over to the Lovely Finishes link up to check out what everyone else is working on here.
