March Bee Blocks Recap

With April in full swing, I thought it best to do a little recap of the bee blocks I rocked out during March at the sewing machine. I'm proud of myself for getting all the blocks done on schedule this month. It really felt like crunch time around here with the wrap up of DQS8 and Pillow Talk recently.

It was Julie's month for Bee Imaginative and she requested wonky style improv blocks. She sent some great monaluna fabrics in green, blue and grey. Mingle happens to be one of my favorite lines and it made for some fun piecing. Here are the 2 blocks I sent off to Julie. Hope she likes!!



Lisa asked for square in square blocks for her month in the Fussy Cut Bee. She sent some Hope Valley and Dolce fabrics. Denyse Schmidt has another winning combination with her latest line, IMO. That striped fabric is awesome. I was able to make one block with the fabrics she sent. It's already safe at home from what I hear!


Finally, Tami sent some red and aqua strips to paper piece an endless chain block during her month of the Red & Aqua Bee. I have to say, although paper piecing isn't my favorite, it's beginning to grow on me. I did my best Tami!


See you in April for another recap!

  5. That first block is just absolutely stunning! I love the four quadrants of the design; how you brought the wonky log cabin in the corner together with the simple border block in the upper right. Fabulous!

  7. Your blocks are amazing!!! I love them all, but have to admit that that first one just kinda blows me away....the combo of wonky balanced with the straight lines is so pleasing to the eye, and so makes me want one of my own!

  8. Very nice blocks! I know it had to take more time to think them up than it did to make them!!
