It's a rare month that I have my bee blocks finished already! This month in the Modern Irish Bee, Helen has asked for four happy, bright, loud, clashing Wonky Cross blocks using her own tutorial. We were to use Kona Solids as the background fabric and then use (non-floral) scraps for the crosses.
I had great fun making these blocks. We usually only make two per hive member, but as these were so easy to make I was happy to make four.
I have to say I was surprised to find four different colors of Kona Solids in my stash. I was sure I would have to go to the shop and pick up a few FQs. Lucky me, though...a little dig and I found enough. They are quite Eastery, though, aren't they? Sure, when they are mixed in with all of the others from the hive they will be fine.
We were asked to not trim them. To leave the little crossing strips dangling from the edge. I feel like I have not finished my job sending them all scraggly. That said, if you tuck in the edges and align the blocks, you can see they will be quite pretty together. Helen, I hope you like them. They will be in today's post.
