2014 is coming to a close, and all my bee blocks for the year are done now. I’m going to mail the last one off today. I last posted October’s blocks (I think) so these are November and December.
For Canadians Quilt, Dominique requested a sewing machine block, with various colour options. I picked aqua and red. M-R (December) went with a seasonal theme and asked for Christmas trees in aqua, grey, and red.
For Stash Bee, Sue asked for wonky stars. I know she really likes Heather Ross, and of course I don’t blame her and totally understand why. So I pulled out some Heather Ross and Munki Munki and got to work. The block was so much fun that I made her two!
And finally, for the 4×5 Bee, I made four versions of the same block in the colour scheme of the recipient’s choosing. I think my favourite one of these is the top right, but I really like how all of them came out. They have all been received already, and all of my blocks have come in the mail too, but I don’t have a picture of them. They are gorgeous, so I should take one and post it here.
And, though I considered giving up bees entirely for 2015, I’ve decided to continue in Canadians Quilt for another year, and have also joined a second all Canadian bee. So here’s to another great year of making blocks for other people, and challenging my design comfort and skill level!
