Critters and Bugs – Bea’s EQ Applique’D Animals Blog Hop

Bee LessonThis is the second block I have designed in Electric Quilt.

Thanks go to Bea for letting me join this Blog Hop, The tutorial at DoYouEQ called Tracing In PatchDraw, Electric Quilt who creates this software for us to play in. The Graphics Shoppe who’s images I used to create my blocks for this blog hop.

Today I have created for you a Bee block which I have named Bea’s Bee. If you’d like to learn how to create the block yourself, you can watch the video below, otherwise, feel free to just download the pattern and enjoy. You will find the pattern near the bottom of this post.

Feel free to download my videos if you prefer to view them offline.

As an additional note here, if you create something with my block, I have created additional blocks to go with the three created for the blog hop, you need to send me an image to display on my site of your finished block. (No need to put it in a project or even finished project, just seeing how you stitched it out would be awesome), I will send anyone who sends me a image of the finished block the entire suite of blocks to go with the Summer theme. This is an ongoing option to continue after the blog hop. You can upload the file to me here.

Love this “little” bee. This must be what they look like after a vist to my garden when the bleeding hearts are blooming. Great video!

I just get EQStitch and I think this would make a very cute applique. I’ve book marked your video on youtube and this blog post. When (if?) I ever get this made up in actual fabric ~ I’ll be sure to let you know.
