We were led by our Hive Mama Adrienne from Chezetcook's Modern Quilts. On the first of every month the Queen Bee got to pick a block and either send a link to a free tutorial or write one for us to follow (we all picked free tutorials!) Maximum block size was 14" and the requirement was to send 1 block or if you had the time you could make more!
I think you can see from the variety here we had a great selection of blocks over the course of the year! From modern rail fence blocks to scrappy stars to paper pieced kaleidoscope blocks.
Clover & Violet with low volume scraps for the background.
When sending blocks, we put up a picture in Flickr and a note on the discussion page for that month to let our Queen Bee know they were on the way.
When they were received, our Queen posted a thank you note. The ladies in this Bee were fantastic and we had only one drop out across the whole year so our Bee became 12 instead of 13.
It was great fun looking at the finished quilts and spotting your own block in the mix!
