I got a little behind in my bee blocks so I have a couple of months to share….
The star blocks are for the June Queen Bee, who is Julie. I was quicker with these ones! This one is called Starburst, a block from Quiltmaker's 100 blocks Magazine Vol. 3.
This one is Nova, a paper pieced block from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine Vol. 2. Bit miffed at the angle of my fussy cut centre but I didn’t notice that it wasn’t going to be straight, I really should pay more attention!
Next month, July, is my turn to be Queen Bee! I have been thinking about what block to use for ages, I thought about the AMH feathers but that has been done twice already, I considered the Improv Chevron block but in the end I have decided to go with the Basketweave Braid Star block.
These are two that I made up so I could figure out the fabric requirements. I am using two layer cakes, Reunion and Hometown, both from Sweetwater and I think they mix together really well.
Here are my strips all cut….although it is a paper pieced block the fabrics are pretty much cut to size so they shouldn’t be too hard to put together. I won’t post these out for a couple of weeks but I wanted to get it done now so I can focus on some other things for the rest of the month.
