I’m in quite a few bees right now…like six. The best part about bees is getting blocks back. I’m receiving blocks from three bees right now.
The first bee I’m receiving blocks from is the KC Scrappy Bee Group 1. I asked for bookshelf blocks.
This is from Marilyn. The colors in this block are awesome and the lamp is such a cute idea!
This is from Nikki and I LOVE the wonkiness of the stacked books and the awesome rainbow of colors.
Stephanie made this block and she knocked that Rubik’s Cube out of the freaking park! She embroidered around it to make it pop. It’s adorable and awesome.
Mary Kay made this block. Her colors are also fabulous. I love the brightness. And she also did some embroidered! She embroidered around the I, Heart, and F on the cup. It’s so perfect!
Finally, Karen made this block and the glasses are such a clever idea, especially since I wear glasses!
I’ve seen a couple other blocks on FB, but the members weren’t able to make it to the KCQMG meeting, so I still have those to look forward to!
I’m also in the KC Scrappy 3×6 Bee. I asked for low volume 12.5″ blocks. Here’s what I’ve gotten so far. Well, minus the first one Nikki gave to me early that’s in the bottom of my WIP bin and I was too lazy to dig it out.
Nikki made me log cabins, which are totally awesome. She’s now made me three, which is definitely over achieving since January was technically our first month.
Mary made me this and the chevrons, in my opinion, make this block. It’s just awesome.
Elizabeth made this one and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the blue background fabric. It’s so dainty and elegant!
And Stephanie made me this star. The newsprint is awesome and I love the wonkiness. I usually make the star wonky, but have never thought of making the outside squares different sizes. It’s genius!
Finally, I’m getting these chevron Dresden Plates back. These are going to be a quilt for my dad since he’s a pretty big Dresden Plate fan. I fussy cut the chevrons so the blocks would turn out like they did. They’re awesome! I’m going to set them on point and probably do some fun half or quarter Dresden Plates on the borders.
Getting these blocks is so exciting and I can’t wait to see more come rolling it and eventually become quilts!
