Or - How many Bee blocks can a Bee Mate complete back to back? Ok, technically #6 I finished on Sunday, but semantics, right? I had enough I thought I would make a pretty mosaic~1. This is for Leona in our first month of Design Camp, thinking outside the box. I had too much fun making this block! I had to stop myself from going overboard with the strips. It was a simple concept for the block, 5" charm squares in solids. And I'm so glad I received the browns. I love it!
2 & 3. For Karen in Honey Bees, simple window blocks, she provided excellent directions! We used Kate Spain charm squares, beautiful!
4 & 5. Confetti blocks are for Corrie in the group Sew Bee It, I came in as a replacement for someone in this group, and I'm so glad I was invited!
6. February block for Sarah who blogs over at SoSarahSews, she has a quilt featured this week on the blog Quilt Story, it is a sweet friendship quilt. We used our own scraps and black Kona for the background.
7 &8. For Gina in my Block Party Bee, we are using blocks from the book Block Party - The Modern Quilting Bee, I have a great group of bee mates in this group! Gina chose the Roman Stripes block and used Christmas fabrics.
9. Keeping track of where all these blocks need to end up!
I still have 1 January item to make, and it is giving me mental diarrhea! Not because the block is ugly, it's all me! I have never made a hexie block before and I'm afraid I'm going to screw it up. I tried to clear some other mental clutter by getting these blocks done, so I can take some mental pepto and focus, focus, focus.
