Sew Bee Blissful April Block

I love, love, love the April Sew Bee Blissful block!  This month's queen bee, Caroline, choose the perfect fabrics for us to play with.


We each made two blocks, as scrappily (is that a word?) as possible.

Isn't it yummy?  It took a bit of time getting each HST trimmed to 3.5 inches, but I could imagine a whole quilt top could come together pretty quickly if you just dedicated an evening in front of the TV trimming, then a day or so piecing.  Anyway, I am really looking forward to seeing her finished top!

Scrap-tastic!!! I love them Cindy, thank you so much for the lovely blocks. I can't wait to receive the Bee blocks, though i must get cracking as I also want to add another 12 blocks to the mix to make it bigger. Thank you for doing such a great job on them. They are Summer Blues from Tilda should anyone be wondering.
