Bee Blocks

I joined a couple of bees that started (or restarted) in March. I probably shouldn't have joined so many! But I always over commit myself. And, it is getting me to try things I otherwise wouldn't.

The first is the Gone Quiltin Bee. I finished my two star blocks for Alisha in the nick of time. She chose the wonky star. They were fun to make and did come together quickly.


The other block for the Gone Quiltin bee was for Debbie. She chose a Thangles sampler. I had never tried Thangles before. They were nice and easy to use.



The other Bee I am in is called Simplebee. In this bee we are doing the Garden Fence block. I really love this block and it is really easy to make. I plan to use this bee to help me make a quilt for our bedroom.

Finally, I joined a bee called Fat Stash Bee. Joelle requested any star - but wonky. There were a lot of great choices. I found my choice on the Gen X Quilter's Block Library. The Block is Quattro Stagioni Star. Pretty easy to make - IF - you can get your points to match up. It took me several tries. Sigh.

  1. You have way more patience than I do right now - the only crafts I'm doing are messy ones!
