How much wood could a woodchuck....

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.
