I have bee blocks to share today. Between getting 4 quilts ready for the exhibitions this month and the busy day job the bee blocks were last to be ticked off the list in May and I finished them up this last Sunday right in the nick of time on the 31st.
For modern Irish Bee, Maya asked us for boxy stars in pink and green against a black background, an unusual colour combo and it makes me think I should use black a little bit more. The blocks are made with this free tutorial from Quiltville.
They go together log cabin style and then you add the black squares on the corners. Of course for my first block I added the squares to the wrong corners. Doh!
It does give some interesting design options though like a cross instead of a star.
I see a foxes face in this one though Tomomi and Louise on facebook saw T-shirts!
We all quite like this one though. Possibilities it has…
For stash bee the request was Churn dash blocks. Love these! There is something about a churn dash that is so satisfying to make.
We were asked to make 3 with a low volume background and bright fabrics and 1 the other way around.
I really like this duck egg blue and flower pattern, something vintage and soft about it to me that reminds me why I wanted to make patchwork pieces in the very first place. Tutorial for this one is here on Stash Bee. Happy weekend everyone!
