These are the blocks I chose. The flower block is called Spring Blossom from Charise Creates Vintage Sew-A-Long. She has the most beautiful blocks on her web page and featured this flower block on Sew Mama Sew where she shared the template and tutorial. For global scrap Bee, the block I chose for this month is Clover & Violet's Low Volume Scrappy Star. I love how this block looks.
For Stash Bee, you have to make the block from the tutorial showing how you did it step by step and point out any areas of difficulty or any changes you want to make along the way. If you want to see how I made this one, the post is at Stash Bee Hive#10. Stash Bee runs from January to November and opens to new members every year if you interested in joining a Bee!
Global Scrap Bee is the first Bee I joined and it came from Plum and June's summer blog hop for new quilt bloggers last year. It is a scrappy Bee so we are making blocks from our scraps and little bits of Stash. To make the scrappy Star you need a solid or print that reads as solid for the centre and a mixture of prints to make the 4 squares and 8 rectangles. It's a very scrap friendly block!
Laying them out to play what goes best where is fun and even in a Greek cross shape this would be a cool block to make.
Happy with this layout, I chain pieced the squares on the rectangles to make the star points. 4 going from left to right and 4 from right to left!
Love this block. It is really quick to piece! Just join the rectangles to make star points.
Then in rows.
Finally rows together.
And voila, one scrappy Star block!
Isn't she pretty?
So that's my Bee duties for May for these 2 done and dusted. Back to other WIP's now like binding!
I haven't invested in wonder clips yet for holding down the binding. At the moment I'm using 2 packets of hair clips. 2 sides hand sewn down, 2 more to go. Then a label and a hanging sleeve. I'll get there eventually!
