Primary Bee Block 1

Do you remember Amelia joined the Primary Bee earlier in December


The first block was to be the friendship block, it had to be white, black and hot pink :) We managed to do it in two sittings, the first I helped Amelia cut the block out,

taught her how to mark the HST's and she was very excited to learn how to iron. We sewed the squares into rows (I've bought a 1/4" foot for her Janome Mini and it helps alot) and then today we finished the block off.

She's very proud of herself. If I was being super critical there's one small corner of the star missing but she's done really well and it measures the correct 12.5"

Mummy and I chose some fabric, black and pink sketch with a swirly pink.  I hope you like it.  To go in your quilt.  I enjoyed making it and it was fun to make.  We'll be posting it tomorrow. We live in France even though I'm English and was born in France. I speak English and French. 

The next block is a log cabin with Christmas fabrics, we'll start before I go back to school in January.

  1. What great first block. I have the same mini sewing machine that I'd like to take to sewing club, but I'm not sure which 1/4" foot would fit the rounded ankle.

  8. So great! The smile on her face is what it is all about. Sunshine was working on her block yesterday too and instantly asked about finishing it when she woke up this morning. Nicely done Amelia!
