Can you believe it’s the last month of The Honey Pot Bee?! What a delicious ride it has been迄今为止! I got asked today if The Honey Pot Bee will continue for another round into the new year. The short answer is, “No.” However, the medium-to-long answer is that I would like to continue some posts on how to complete your quilt top. I know a lot of you have been questioning the same, but until I saw all of the quilt blocks it’s been somewhat of an impossible task. After today’s reveal, I can start thinking about options for putting all this glorified craziness into one place. But hey! Don’t wait on me, if you’ve got a sashing plan, or an everything but the kitchen sink layout ready to go: GO! I do have a sneaking suspicion that I’ll be adding a few more filler blocks here and there, and I will fo’ sho’ let you know what those are along the way. So, not a full bee, but we’re still gonna be giving them something to talk about well into 2018.
Hi! I’m Isabelle – quilter, stay-at-home-mom, wife, and high school history teacher, though not always in that order. I write at Teach Sew Love, but you can find most of what I do on Instagram as @southbaybella. I started sewing two years ago when I was feeling a little lost as a new stay-at-home parent and needed something fun that wasn’t stuffed or animated. I discovered a passion for sewing and quilting that I have truly enjoyed ever since.
Next we have Yvonne who has designed this multi-faceted (in every sense of the word) quilt block called Hashtag Is the New Plaid. Hilarious, sparkling, and striking all at once! Can I get an amen?! Again, this block on repeat with the right fabric placement would be all about the jewels, baby! As someone who considers shopping for diamonds a hobby, I think I know a thing or two about that! Mmm-kay! The instructions for both of these blocks or next level, so make one, make two, or make a whole quilt just in time for the holidays!
I grew up in the 80s and 90s, and I wore a lot of plaid in middle and high school. When I started dating my husband, he wore this one plaid shirt really often… and just a few weeks ago, after the plaid shirt hung in our closet for over 14 years, it was finally time to admit it was too torn up and worn to keep using or even pass on.
Okay, I’m outta here for now, enjoy your week, and flip me a note if you have anything burning you up. But, consider seeing a doctor if it’s below the waist! Ciao!
