For the next few months we haven't prescribed any particular block for Bee Blessed. So, as long as the unfinished block measures 12.5" square we have freedom to challenge ourselves to something new or make an old favourite as we please. (BTW - If you'd like to be one of our online Bee members you can join us in this venture - just pop over to the flickr group and get in touch - or leave a comment here and I'll get back to you.) It's going to be fun to see what everybody chooses to do. Then with our stash of blocks we'll see what works together and create some sampler quilts to donate.
This month I had planned to use the Modern Blocks book which I LOVE,
but somehow I got sidetracked by the blocks that Jenna posted for her Sew Happy Quilt QAL. They were lovely to make - not too taxing, but still interesting - and I'm pretty happy with them. Thanks Jenna! I think the problem with the Modern Blocks blocks was that I was just so indecisive about which of the MANY I wanted to make and Jenna's two block tutorial kind of helped me with a neat little packaged set when I really just needed to be getting on with it. Got to be more assertive with myself for next time!
