February Bee Blocks
I am cutting it a lot closer than usual here, but I did get my bee blocks finished in time to mail out before March 1! I actually switched bees within do. Good Stitches and this is my first month in the Haven Circle. We were asked to make a block with an inspiring word in low volume fabrics.
I chose "create" and decided to try improv piecing for it. I think it is legible, but it is long! Longer than I planned. I hope at 24"x 5" it fits in with the other words okay.
For our second block we were allowed to make a second word or just a traditional 12.5" block. I chose the sawtooth star since I have really been enjoying making HST with my sizzix die. I love skipping the trimming step!
Last but not least, these are my blocks for the Sewn Together bee. February is Rick's month and he is planning to make a quilt for his brother. I think these fabrics really transport you to a mountain stream. I am excited to see how it turns out!
I should be back tomorrow with a giveaway! I got a fun swag bag at Quiltcon, but really don't need most of the stuff in it, so I thought I would share!
