September Bee Blocks

I finished this adorable Christmas themed bee block for Cathy!  I really love this Ann Kelle print.  It’s so cheery!  (It also reminds me that I have been thinking about a Christmas quilt for …. ummm… forever!  Maybe if I start it in October, it will be done by December… maybe… :))

For the Modern Instagram Bee based on the book Modern Bee, the sweet Cristy Fincher from Purple Daisies, LLC requested a Triple Star block with aqua and another color.  It would have been easy for me to pick purple, which also happens to be Cristy’s favorite color, but I wanted to push myself to try for an unused color palatte.  I came up with orange and aqua.  This block was a bit challenging (and hopefully the incredibly talented Cristy does not look too closely at my points).  The center uses 1 1/4″ squares, which I am not used to sewing, so I was grateful for the challenge.  Yet another case where glue basing made a huge difference.

Here is my finished bee block.
