April Bee Hive Block…

The May block for the Bee Hive Swap is the Wanta Fanta block. First, remember that Fanta commercial? “Want a want a, don’t you want a”? The entire time I was working on this block that song was going through my head. Second, I have to admit that when I saw there was paper piecing involved I groaned. I don’t have a hard time with paper piecing, I get it. I just don’t enjoy it. I feel like I spend most of my time prepping and not much time sewing. Luckily, the paper piecing isn’t too intense with this block. And the end result is really nice.

    Lovely photography Stephanie! I made some of these blocks for the bee I am participating in too. Excellent color choices!

    It is a beautiful block and I love the fabrics you chose. I feel the same way about paper piecing, but I have to admit I do enjoy the clean precise points it can give you.

    I don’t mind the sewing part of paper piecing but I hate tearing out the paper afterwards. But I do love the precise, sharp points you get with it. Looking forward to getting to know you better in the 2016 New Blogger group!

      Hi Sharla!

      Tearing the paper is the worst… I always worry its going to distort my blocks. I’m really looking forward to getting to know you in our blogger group… I am feeling so inspired by everyone!

      Have a nice day, Stephanie
