Sew Sweet Bee Block

Our queen bee for the Sew Sweet Bee this month is Cathy from a A Quilting Chick Blog.
She picked the block "first Kiss" designed by Podunk Pretties.
I really like this block.  I broke my finger, but luckily I already had the majority of the first block sewn.  I went ahead and tried sewing the second block together also.
The little iron my husband bought me at Christmas is perfect for ironing open seams.

This is a block that needs to be laid out every step of the way to make sure it does not get messed up.
I'm not really sure what happened to the block on the left, well, I guess it has to do with trying to sew, cut , and iron with a broken finger!  I'll be sending Cathy the block on the right.
I broke my finger by slamming it in a window and then the window got stuck up with my fingers stuck in between the panes.

Be sure to check out Cathy's and Lea Ann's  blogs, you will really like them!

Your block is so pretty! I am so sorry about your fingers. It was painful just reading what happened. Hope you feel better soon.

I absolutely love that block - so pretty! I was working on my last Drunkards Path and the last two squares came out wonky... :( I don't even have a broken finger to blame for that!

It sounds so painful! I hope you heal quickly! Take good care!

I hope that your finger is feeling better soon.
The block is just beautiful! I'm glad that you're able to still sew.

Ouch! I had a broken toe when I went to the NETX TOGA last year. Take care of that finger.
