Then it hit...why not use my Bee Happy for my Bee Block!
So, I decided to keep it simple with a disappearing 9-patch! I am actually really excited for this, not only am I going to use this adorable stash, I will be getting a large quilt! Instructions are included with the fabric.
So this is what the block will end up looking like,
but I am most excited about the end result...so I thought I would show you what I am going to do with them once the blocks come back! Since I had barely, and I do mean barely enough patterned fabric for 12 blocks I decided to create a little applique block for the center.
So here are all the details...
What size quilt block do you want your bee partners to make?
Unfinished size 14 3/4" x 14 3/4"
Can your partners use any of their own stash fabric to use in your quilt block?
I have sent you all that you need. And I only need one block...hopefully quick and easy!
Is there a specific color of thread (white/off white) you want your partners to sew with?
White is great!
Will you allow any embellishments on the quilt block ?
No embellishments needed. Keeping it simple!
Any link for your inspiration?
Sorry, I have just seen a lot of disappearing 9-patch blocks and was playing with them in Photoshop! I ended up placing them in a trellis and loved the almost Vegas 60's feel.
and now for my question!! ? !!
Do you have a name or favorite item in your sewing / craft room? If so, please share it with us and / or explain what it is or where the name came from. And since I am a visual person...if you can,
My name for my room is Egypt! I have always loved Egyptian art, movies, and history! So, I decorated my space with some of these things. I love it too when my husband asks if I am spending my weekend in Egypt...the answer is always yes! I will share a picture later this month.
So here it is...My Bees Blocks are flying to you through the mail as we speak! Have a great beginning to Spring...
here in Idaho we are so ready!!!
