Quilting bees can be lots of fun, but they can also be a bit stressful. With Thanksgiving and the end of the month coming, I knew I had to get these done this week or else I'd be late.
Lee's tree block for the Sew Beautiful bee. Lee gave us a lot of freedom to create a block. She simply requested trees. This is what I came up with. I paper pieced each side of the tree for precision. She used linen for her background, and I loved it. It fits so well with the fabrics she chose.
Krista's block for the Stash Trad Bee. I've been procrastinating this block because Krista had us all sufficiently scared with the need to piece this with scant 1/4" seams. This was not a quick block for me, but it turned out pretty good, and I think these blocks will make a great quilt.
Amber's DS inspired block for our local quilt bee.
Val's block for her Heroes Helping Heroes charity quilt.
This past month was my month for our local bee (it runs from one MQG meeting to the next). I asked the bee members to make 12" strings blocks with some of my favorite fabrics.
These are my blocks I received for the 4x5 bee a couple months ago. I probably won't do another round anytime soon of the 4x5 so I've decided to use these on the other side of the strings quilt. I think I will sash them and likely put them on point.
