Bee Blessed January 2015
Time for a new year's block of the month for Bee Blessed (already?)
I have been wanting to have a go at a maple leaf block for ages and I was chuffed when I saw it was this month's choice by Judith for Bee Blessed. Using Just Jude's Maple Leaf block tutorial I stitched this up in around an hour, fabric dithering included (and I wasn't particularly rushing). Judith's tutorial is perfect with lovely clear photos and instructions, so there's no excuse to shy away from this block.
If you do fancy having a go, we would ask that you use a solid white fabric for the background and a bright print for the leaf and stem. Don't feel you have to stick with autumnal shades, bright and beautiful is what we're after! I hope you will want to make us one or two to add to our donated quilts for 2015!
