The Quilty Fun Sew Along - Week 19 - Bumble Bee!!! ...

Good morning cute people!
Today brings us on week 19 of the

I was out of town and unable to post on the mittens...Week 17:)
Thanks to my friend Trish who hosted 
that weeks post on her lovely blog;
Big hugs Trish!!!…you're a sweetie:)

And last week was hosted by the lovely and talented
I'm so glad that she hosted her week so beautifully because
I had big time problems with blogger last week
and finally gave up after losing my post twice!
PS…is anyone else having this issue?

This is Bumble Bee week and is hosted by my super sweet friend 
Click here 
to visit her cute blog and to get this weeks PDF
and giveaway information:)

The Bumble Bee is the last block for the Quilty Fun Sampler
 that we have all been making for the sew along…


Next week I will be hosting for the finishing up part.

I will tell you that you can 
cut 5 - 1 1/2" x 23 1/2" 
sashing strips to join all of the center sections together:)

I sewed my entire quilt top together before 
I did the embroidery on the Bumble Bee…
because as the designer,
I wanted to wait and see exactly what I wanted to embroider.

But I normally would do the embroidery
 on the block before it is sewn into the quilt…
it's much easier to get to that way:)

So download this weeks PDF for the embroidery pattern…
choose floss that matches the fabrics in your quilt and start stitching!

For those who are new to embroidery…
don't be intimidated!
It's not as hard as you may have built it up in your mind to be!
If you need a little hand holding…
(as we all do …hehe)

Have a quilty kind of day and remember…
you are the boss of your own quilt!

It's so adorable, Lori! I can hardly wait to sew my cute little bumble bee, and put the center section together. This has been such a great sew along, thank you :) I haven't been having any problems with blogger. Have you tried restarting your computer? I'm sure you have, but sometimes that helps. Isn't Sterling a computer whiz? Most teenagers are :)
