Mermaids and Munki in the Middle - Bee Blocks!

This yummy block is for Kim. She requested a simple wonky log cabin block and mailed a nice assortment of Mendocino fabric... and some Kei Honeycomb I just love! Kim had the month of May in the Sew New to Me VQB.

I apologize for the less than stellar photos... I really need better lighting in my sewing space! Time to plan another trip to Ikea :-)

The following two blocks are for Rachel. The inspiration for Rachel's blocks come from Denyse Schmidt's "Drunk Love in a Log Cabin," which I really enjoyed creating. Rachel included two Munki Munki fabrics to be featured and surrounded by a white. I hope I did them justice!
Rachel had May in the [Bee]-autiful VQB. I particularly loved the orange Sushi print!

**Elizabeth has a nice little post about quilting bees, what they are, how to join them etc - check it out if you simply must know more***

On a side note, I intend to finish a baby quilt I feel like I've been working on for ages... a small feat, for a new mom! I hope to share it early next week!
