It's time for this month's bee blocks! I'm glad to have them done on time... woo hoo! First up is a block for Leanne "shecanquilt" in the Modern Blocks Bee. Leanne asked us to make the "Stonehenge" block, designed by Amy Ellis found on pages 182-183. She sent us fabric from Tula Pink's Birds and Bees line, oh so pretty! I love the simplicity of this block and really look forward to seeing what great modern quilt Leanne creates with them. This block measures 12.5" x 12.5".
I will start by saying that these blocks were a little time consuming and on the "harder" scale of blocks, but I will say the effort was worth it and boy these are stunning. "Watch Meesh Run" asked us to create two New York Beauty blocks in the Always Bee Learning group. I think I remember these being blocks number 1 and 7, and you can find the patterns for them HERE. This is going to be an all purple quilt and I think it is going to be FABULOUS, especially since purple is my favorite color, just saying. These blocks measure 8.5" x 8.5", and are paper pieced with the exception of the curves.
Last but not least are three simple Snowball blocks for a special charity project. You can find the tutorial HERE, these blocks measure 8" x 8". We had the option of using green, red, or black fabrics, which I thought for sure I had plenty in my stash. Well you can see from these three blocks that apparently I only have black in my stash, no true green or red. I guess I know what I need to buy next...
