4x5 Modern Quilt Bee Blocks

A while ago I posted about the new 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee.  There are about 100 people participating.  Everyone is divided into groups of six.  You make five blocks- one for each member of your group.  Groups are reassigned four times a year.  I lucked out and have a great group.  It's been so fun to see what people come up with.  Each member requests certain colors and everyone else has free reign to create fabulous quilt blocks in those colors.  I finished these up last night.  I used the tutorial by Kate at Swim, Bike, Sew for the Summer Sampler Series. 





While we only had to make five blocks, I decided to make this one for myself.  My colors I chose were aqua and yellow.

  4. These are so nice, Kati! They're machine-pieced, I presume. The last time I made these blocks, I hand-pieced them. You'd be surprised at how quickly they went together. Your fabric choices are wonderful. You inspire me to sew brightly (as I'm trying very hard to use up all those muddy color in my stash).
