Bee-utiful QAL {Block 3 - Bee Lovely}

NOTE: This quilt-a-long has wrapped up. If you are looking for the full set of embroidery patterns and quilt assembly instructions, please visit the final post {here}.

It's pretty rare to see flowers without a bee somewhere nearby, so it seemed only natural to have a block full of flowers in a quilt about bees. I have this long-standing dream of having a garden full of beautiful flowers and fuzzy bumblebees swarming around, but sadly I am 100% awful at keeping plants alive. No joke, I've killed a cactus. Sigh.

Thankfully, you can't kill embroidered flowers ;)

That's being said, I've created some pretty gorgeous, unkillable (Is that a word? LOL) flowers for you to embroider in block 3.

I won't really be introducing any new techniques for this block.


Although, I will be using some techniques in a new and different way :)


Also, I hope you like sunflowers! They're my favorite, and I've incorporated quite a few throughout this quilt.


Here is your video tutorial for this block, where I show you how to fill in the "circle flower" (Don't judge; I made this flower up! Apparently I'm not creative when it comes to naming flowers.) using a chain stitch.
