May Bee Blocks and a Winner


I had some fun bee blocks in the month of May, though it took me a while to finish them. (And post about them!)

Colorful Churn Dash block for Felicity

For the Stash Trad bee, Felicity asked for colorful churn dash blocks. This is the bee where we make traditional blocks from our own scraps and stash, so I really busted out the color for this one. Churn dash blocks are so easy to make, very beginner-friendly, so if you’re looking for something like that I highly recommend it.

Improv pineapple block for Angela

For the Sew Beautiful bee, Angela sent each of us a charm from fabric she purchased on a trip to Hawaii. She added some other colorful prints and solids and asked for this improvisational pineapple block (a pineapple block for a Hawaiian quilt, of course!) I can’t wait to see how this one comes together, it’s going to be fabulous! And what a wonderful souvenir from her trip. I especially love the wicker-look print from Tula Pink’s Nest collection.

Planetarium block for Corinne

And finally, for the Milwaukee Modern Quilt Guild bee, Corinne asked for the Planetarium block from Elizabeth Hartman’s Practical Guide to Patchwork. Corinne gave us some lovely Art Gallery prints to work with, and asked for borders in bright solids. Another fun one!

And speaking of Art Gallery, I owe you all a winner of the Rhapsodia bundle from my Fat Quarter Gang post. The winner is #47, Wendy, who said: “Oooh, I would love to win. Going to look at the tutorial now. Thanks!” Wendy, I’ve sent you an email. And if any of you missed my Ruffled Zipper Pouch tutorial, go check it out!
