Catching Up With Stash Bee Quilt Blocks

I’ve been enjoying the stash bee and am looking forward to being Queen Bee next month. I have my block picked out and I’m happy to report it’s not one that’s been done by anyone thisĀ  year. Yay!

Here’s a quick catch-up on what I’ve done so far.

In February I made this “low volume” star block for Ruth. I… don’t really have much in the way of low-volume fabric, but Ruth seemed to like it anyway!

In March I made this paper-pieced Union Jack block for Toni (@gypsygirl6923 on Instagram). Paper piecing is not for me, friends, but I concede that it produces perfect results. I’m avoiding any and all Brexit cracks here and you should know it’s really hard.

In April June I made these awesome cross blocks for Jennifer (@jabloxham). They may have gone in the post only this past weekend, but they were really fun to make, even though they have solid fabrics, which I typically avoid.

In May I made this fun star block for Rose (@rosebraun914). It came together so easily that I actually made a pair.

Officially in June, I made this green star for Em (@moonlightsewing). It barely made a dent in my green scraps.

Thanks for picking fun, challenging blocks, bee mates!
