Sew & Bee Happy: April Block

This month in Sew & Bee Happy, Leona asked for a classic card trick block in red and aqua.  Using this tutorial, I set off cutting.  


This bee constructs blocks using only your stash.  I have lots and lots of red, so that was not a problem.  However, aqua is a little more difficult to find in my "scrap" pile.  This was my one and only.  I wish I had something that was a bit more toned down.  Still, I'm generally happy with the block.  I hope Leona is too!

It looks great, although I know just what you mean about finding the right things in your stash! I seem to have finally reached a critical mass where I'm finding just about enough of everything...
