Some new blocks for my virtual quilting bee, The Beehive.
For Katrina who sent mainly Amy Butler 'Love' fabrics and requested mega star blocks a-la Red Pepper Quilts.
The first step in making these is to make a bunch of half-square triangles.
I didn't trust myself enough with the suggested size so I made bigger ones that I then had to trim back.
I really should have trusted myself.
Katrina's month was March but my fabrics didn't arrive until last week due to postal stuff-ups.
Don't you just hate that!!!
This was a really fiddly block to make and I have a new found respect (as if I didn't have one already!!) for the likes of Rita who can make an entire quilt's worth of these blocks. Exhausting!!!
April is Tanya's month.
She sent out fabrics in a red, green, grey and white palette and requested lots of circles!!
Here's what I've done:
This one (above) measures 12.5 inches square.
The next 2 are 6.5 inches square each.
Feels good to be up to date.
I think I'm a one-bee-at-a-time kind of girl.
How do people keep up with multiple bees and still have time for other crafting?
PS I'm playing with my blog layout. Feedback?
