Nedra's Bee block

Here's the block I made for Nedra.


This is the block that Nedra should have received, but I was multitasking, and sewed the gray where the white should have been!
Nedra was very understanding, and said I could use fabric from my stash.
I'll put this little "X" block in my orphan block pile.


My favorite color to sew with is pink, even though my favorite color is red :)
There are so many shades of pink, I enjoy the range and the possibilities.

Sending a little love!

I thought I would send Nedra a little love for Valentines!  This bee block was really quick and fun and now I am going to have to create one of these for myself!
Also, Nedra the picture is to show you that in the frozen north, when we look outside, all we see is white!! And if you ask my sister, my favorite color is purple, but I love all colors. Enjoy your block and all that warm weather!

February 2017 Tic Tac Toe Block


 
 
 
Hi Ladies,
I'm excited that February is my month!
I have selected the Tic Tac Toe block for you to make.
I've enclosed the directions with the fabrics, but if you need any other help, you can refer to the free tutorial by Blossom Hearts Quilts. 
 
 
I have changed it up a bit by placing gray squares to the sides and keeping the inner squares one color.
It's a pretty simple block, so hopefully you will be comfortable making. Thanks!
 
*Also, tell me your favorite color to work with when making quilts.
 
Beefully yours,
Nedra
