My month in the Quilting newBEES is quickly approaching (July) and will be here before we know it! After much deliberation and hair pulling, I decided to use the Denyse Schmidt Picnic and Fairgrounds collection, with a few matching solids, and a few matching Denyse Schmidt prints from her other previous lines. I also added in several matching prints from my stash that had that "feed sack" feel to them. I decided on a log cabin based block, nothing wonky, just straight lines, but the members will have a lot of freedom with these blocks. Logs ranging in size from 1/2" to 3", and the blocks themselves ranging in size from 12.5" to 16" will allow these "newBEES" the freedom to create something totally original! I whipped up these two blocks as examples, and both ironically measure in at 13". I can not wait to see what my group members whip up!
