May Bee Block for Earamichia!!

So I took the jump, with both feet!

I must admit I was a little nervous . . .

I haven't been in a bee before . . .

What if I messed up the fabric E. sent me????

And what was I going to do to show

Earth, Wind, Fire and Water???

This is what I came up with and I have to say

it was the most fun I've had in a long time.

I was nervous about the curvy water section,

I have never done that improv curved piecing before.

So I practiced a bit to figure out how to do it.

Good thing I did because my first try was

a train wreck!!!

I added an earthy fabric to the mix that E. sent to me,

I hope you like it E.!!

Thanks for the challenge, can't wait to see what everyone

else does and how you put it together.


  1. Love the way your block turned out. You really captured the essence. Love the wavy piecing!

  2. is absolutely Fabuuuuuuuulous. I am oh so excited...I never thought of that..see that's why I didn't want to post anything. Lisa I love it...I love your earthy addition...reminder...don't let Lisa's block influence you either...resist the should be what comes from you. Yippee...I am grinning like a Cheshire cat...hey I'm easy..I liked the way that Helen posted the fabric in a picture...smiles..

  3. I am most impressed, Lisa! You have really come up with a winner. Don't worry about my being too influenced by Lisa's block. My block is going to be totally different. I, too, am having fun with these fabrics and loving the challenge. Give me fabric + freedom = BIG smiles here.
