I belong to an online bee, Bee Inspired, and each month our Queen selects a block and we all make one for her.
I’d done well at the beginning of the year, but recently I’ve fallen behind and they’ve begun to stack up. So I’ve made it a priority this month to make my bee blocks and to get them mailed off to each Queen at long last.
The happy news is that I’ve gotten two of my bee blocks done! The first is for Jen @ A Dream and a Stitch. Jen told us to use this bright color palette and to make whatever we wanted, so I made her my Berry Cross block, a block I designed myself. I thought the block might remind her of me.
I designed the Berry Cross block originally for a blog hop, then hosted a quilt along with it. Here’s my Berry Cross quilt from that quilt along. I’m currently writing a pattern for Berry Cross, so look for it soon!
I’m mailing your block off today Jen! So sorry it was late. Hope you like it.
I got another bee block done as well. Thank goodness for simple, modern blocks! The July Queen was Susan @ Seven Oaks Street Quilts. Susan wanted us to make toadstool blocks with a simple color palette—red, grey, and white.
I love the fabrics I found for my version, and I hope Susan loves them too.
I love how bold this block is. What a wonderful quilt it will make! I hope you like it, Susan! I’ll put it in the mail today.
Now to cut the fabrics for the next bee block. Maybe it’ll help to get it done!
