Bee blocking sort of day…

I’m in quite a few bees right now and today I decided I was going to play catch up! My favorite part is selecting the fabrics. So, once I checked out all my beemates mosaics, I went to my stash and pulled the good stuff. I also decided to do a little improv. I cut 6.5″ squares of four different fabrics for each block. Then I cut them in different ways. Finally I added sashing to the middles to make them the proper size. Each one turned out different, but they sure were fun to make:)

Sarah and I are hosting a great bee- Bee a Lone Star(burst)! It’s a great group and the block is really fun to make. The block was designed by Anna of Six White Horses and you can download it here. These blocks are for Mel!! She really hooked me up in the great Tula expedition (more on that later…), so I had to make her blocks extra special! They’ve been done FOREVER, but I just now sewed the points together and squared them. I used a lot of my favorites in these- Tula, Kaffe, Aneela, Lizzy, Amy, Joel, Denyse- lots of good stuff!!

And here is Hollie‘s first block, I love me some pearl bracelets, so with aqua and orange to work with, I had to do a pearl bracelet extravaganza!! She wanted red as the thin strip which really makes the colors pop. It’s one of my favorite blocks that I’ve made for this bee.

I’m also working away on quite a few samples for Studio Stitch and Sew Original! I’m doing a lot of classes with quarter with my patterns- more on that tomorrow!
