This weekend was just fantastic! I spent a good bit of it focusing on my bee blocks for this month. Want to see what folks are asking for?
In my Sew & Bee Happy bee, folks request a block that each hive member makes from their stash alone. Kat had requested a monochromatic block with a little white wonky star for her picnic quilt. She gave us a list of colors to choose from so we're not all making similar blocks. I chose dark/royal blue for my block:
Over in Sew Bee Blissful, Sarah had requested a scrappy rainbow starflower design using a fantastic tutorial by Ellison Lane Quilts. The great thing about this tutorial is for very little additional effort you get two blocks instead of just one. So, Sarah will get a pair of these:
And finally (for the Part 1 of this post) I made two blocks for the Care circle of Do.Good Stitches. Dolores was looking for a pair of complementary blocks in a green (olive, lime, teal, avocado) that were made with matching fabric. For this, we used a sawtooth star tutorial by Purl Bee.
Stars are big right now apparently :) I loved making each and every one of these. In Part 2 of the bee catch up there will be....wait for it....more stars! Eeekk! This is so exciting :)
