You can never see enough bee blocks, right?
I made these snowball blocks for a member of the KC Scrappy Bee.
She had use all Comma by Zen Chic for Moda fabrics that she provided. On the Facebook group, people were making jokes about how these are Mizzou colors. Even though I’m a KU grad, I’m still a huge fan of these colors.
For another bee, I made this hexagon like block. This block gave me a bit of trouble. I had to do it about four times before I got one that laid flat. I finally figured out that my angles were wrong and then the block went together perfectly. I’m glad I was able to stick it out and finish the block because it’s a very pretty block. I left off the triangles because at that point, I was just happy to have it completed and didn’t want to mess it up.
For the second KC Scrappy Bee that I’m in, we were told to make whatever using any fabrics. I love to paper piece and I’ve been wanting to try out the Tallahassee block. I found the template on Quilter’s Cache.
I love yellows and aquas together, but I actually do not have a lot of yellow fabric so I added some yellowy greens to make up for my lack of yellow.
Unfortunately, this block did not turn out as perfectly as I would have liked. When I put all of the little paper pieced sections together, it was really hard for me to get the points to match up exactly. There are places where it’s off…not by a lot, but still off. So I made another block.
This Modern Maple block was fun, quick, and easy. The Modern Maple pattern is free from Lark Crafts.
Finally, you’ve seen the condo block I made, but I didn’t use the fabric provided because I was scared to mess it up. So I made a second block. This time I made a castle because every girl should really live in a castle. (I wish!)
I paper pieced it using the Wonky Castle instructions from Whims and Fancies. I’ve very happy with how cute it turned out to be.
Finally, that’s all of the blocks for this month, but don’t worry, they’ll be plenty more next month. I’m a bee fanatic!
