I’ve made and sent my last bee block for 2013. This is also the last block for one of my Simply Solids groups, since it is ending a month early. We’ve had a great experience together in this group, so much so, that we’ve decided to extend our group for another year. This month’s queen was Sheila, and she requested a snowflake block.
I’m not gonna lie, when I saw this block, I loved it, but I knew it would not be an easy one. I’m not one to back off from a challenge though! It was not as difficult as I expected it to be. I took it slow, and I only ripped one seam. It took about one afternoon of sewing to get it finished. I’m seriously considering making another, for me, for a pillow or something.
Here is the block pre-trimming, in bad, night-time lighting.
And here it is after being trimmed, in better lighting. I’m very pleased with this one. It’s not something I would have felt super confident making for someone else a year ago, but this bee has improved my skills. I’m glad we’re continuing for another year. I wonder what else I’ll learn?
