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}.

When I first announced this quilt-a-long, this was among the first blocks I shared. I love the sweet simplicity of it.

The beauty of having such a simple design is that it really allows you to exercise creative freedom.

So, the instructions (for PDF click here) are quite vague for this block. I wanted you to exercise creative freedom! I choose colors that coordinated with my quilt, but I used them completely at random, and I chose, also at random, to fill in some of the honeycomb with a satin stitch, while outlining the rest with a backstitch.

So let those creative juices flow! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!! Share your version on Instagram with the hashtags #beeutifulQAL, #beecourteous, and #summersewingcamp, and/or in our Facebook group. Also, no video for this block. Don’t worry, though! I’ll have more to come.

Next block will be posted July 2.

Until then, happy stitching!
