The Sewcial Bee Sampler Sew-Along: Block 18!

SBS Square Peg block & materials

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another block release of the Sewcial Bee Sampler sew-along!

Sharon Holland and I are co-hosting this community sew-along now through early August and as usual, I like to begin each Wednesday by reminding folks just learning about the bee that it's never too late to jump in! We continue to have new participants joining us each week, the blocks typically take about an hour to male, so feel free to join us and play catch-up at anytime! I also love to continue to encourage all who join us to keep posting to Instagram with #SewcialBeeSampler tagging both @sharonhollanddesigns and myself @maureencracknell when you post anything SBS so we can all see and easily keep track of all your wonderful bee block posts. We'll continue to try our very best to visit with all who join the sew along. Thank you so much for making this so much fun!

Today's free download is for block #18: Square Peg. I'll be sure to add this new pattern to my Sewcial Bee Sampler Page with the previous week's patterns. It's a great place to start for those of you just discovering our bee, where you can easily find everything you need to begin right in one place!

Sewcial Bee Sampler Week 18 Block: Square Peg!

For my version of this week's Square Peg Block, I used a combination of prints from Garden Dreamer: Bumble Beez and Bumble Buzz, my main floral Sprinkled Peonies Fresh, and both colorways of my Twinklestar print in Blue & Berry. Such a pretty & colorful combination!

Week 18 Fabrics

I didn't even realize while I was pulling fabrics for this week's block that they were all from the same collection. I just really loved including both colorways of two different prints, to create the look of a colorful refection!

Sewcial Bee Sampler Week 18 Block: Square Peg!

This week's block provides another chance to fussy cut a favorite print for the center square. I also added a foursome of fussy cut bees to each corner, I love that! This block was really fun and because I went a little dark with this week's fabric selections, last week's block doesn't look so out of place next to it and amongst the group. I'm sure I'll have to do some shuffling around to find the right balance once all of my SBS blocks are complete, and I love that we have that option with this sampler!

  4. I love the block. But to fussy cut the fabric for a sampler makes you a quilting hero in my book. Thank you for the free block download.
