Every bee I've ever been in has had me making string blocks! They really are a great project choice for a bee as many hands really do make light work and its a great way to get lots of variety in your quilt. Plus they are great scrap busters!
Last month, Martina asked us, in Stash Bee hive #3, for happy bright colours and I chose as many Me and My Sister prints as I had on hand to include in these. Somehow on the day I must have been feeling a green vibe!
It's a traditional block called Winged Square with a fussy cut centre surrounded by Half Square Triangles. This was really fun to make!
The idea is to pick a centre piece and choose 2 colours that speak to you from the image. The bit I liked about the fabric I had chosen was the hummingbird and the pink flower so I chose and aqua colour with hot pink!
Not colours I'd normally use together but I do like them a lot!
Hoping to continue this trend of getting Bee blocks done earlier in the month!
