It has taken me a little longer than usual this month to finish up my Bee blocks, but here they are:
For Jennie in Modern Stitching Bee we are making her star blocks with a solid centre (range of colour options suggested by Jennie) and low volume background pieces. Jennie has written her own tutorial for this block if you're interested.
Catherine's hipBee choice was the Jared Takes A Wife block which you can find on quiltville.com. This block has certainly sparked a bit of interest on IG, perhaps because Catherine's fabric selections make it very striking and perhaps also because it's a block which isn't so familiar to us.
In spite of the fact that this block is made from several units which in themselves are really straightforward, I had a humdinger of a time making them. I was reaching for the stitch ripper more than just to correct this
Oops! I just seemed to be having one of those days when my brain refused to co-operate. I did eventually pull it together and finish both blocks, though some of the points are not as well aligned as they should be - hope they don't spoil things too much for your quilt Catherine.
