Bee Blessed: January

It has been months and months since I have made bee blocks.  I have really missed it - trying out a new-to-me block and pulling fabrics that make me happy.  What could be better?  Bee Blessed choose a Greek Cross block for January, to be made using this tutorial.

And here's what I whipped up: one block in purples and one in green.


I used left over Chicopee charms from this bag for the corners in both blocks, and then a little birdie print for the center 


or Architexture plum charms in the center of this block.


I am already looking forward to seeing what they choose for the February block!
