Bee Blocks for January

3×6 Sampler Bee – Hive 7 – Quarter 4

For my 3×6 Block I decided to to go with a chevron style block.  I decided to use this tutorial Half Square Triangles to create my half square triangles and I definitely had a harder time piecing this together… I think I am going to stick to the traditional way of creating hst.  I love the way they came out.

4×5 Modern Quilt Bee- Hive 15- Quarter 4

For this Bee I decided to be a little ambitious. It is made out of 36 half square triangles.  I had so much fun picking fabrics to give these blocks the scrappy look I wanted.  These blocks are awesome!!!

Orange You Glad Bee – Hive B

Carolyn wanted a spider-web block using a collection on 1.5 inch strips.  The tutorial that she wanted her block based on was from House of A la Mode .  Its a tutorial that doesn’t use foundation piecing.  I have tried the foundation technique from Elizabeth Hartman – on sew mama sew and totally confused myself when making this block.  Don’t ya love when you decide you KNOW that to do instead of reading the entire tutorial. HAHAHA. Well anyway I definitely prefer the House of A la Mode technique.  I find the seams when putting the blocks together will be a lot less bulky and hard to sew.

OHHHHH you want to see the block?  You don’t want to listing to me ramble?

Neutral or Not Bee

For this Bee Stephanie wanted a tree and branchs, with a silhouette of a bird. I decided I wanted to have a tree off to the side instead of centered… and a bird flying to the branch.  This block was fun to come up with the concept… I did panic with the application of the bird… so decided to send the bird separately to Stephanie.
