First up were these Star blocks for Erin in the Sew Modern Bee. To be honest I was a bit intimidated by these blocks, the tutorial , another star, part of the solstice stars series by Faith at Fresh Lemons looked really difficult at first. Once I sat down and read it all through I realised it was actually a relatively easy block with very detailed instructions. The instructions were so clear and easy to follow and Erin sent the fabrics already cut so the blocks were a delight to make and came together in no time.
Both blocks - the finished quilt will be gorgeous
Next up were these fun improv square in a square blocks for Cindy in Sew Bee Blissful. I've never actually made a block from solid fabrics before and it was fun to work with them. There was no tutorial for these we all had to improvise I can't wait to see the finished quilt, it will be full of totally unique blocks.
I didn't have a pink strip of fabric long enough to finish off the block on the left, hopefully Cindy wont mind finishing it up. So next up on my list are my 4 X 5 Bee blocks then back to the string quilt.
Oh I also joined a new bee this week. I know I said I would only do one Bee this year (once my current two finish) but then I got invited to join Bee a Lone Star(burst) over at flickr. I had been obsessively looking at this tutorial and wanted to try out the block then I got invited to join a whole Bee making just these blocks - how could I resist?
