I joined another bee. This bee is part of our newish Boulder Modern Quilt Guild. Amy is making a Christmas quilt so she had us whip together these easy cross blocks. She made blocks in the opposite color groupings and then started to piece it all together last weekend at our sew day. It's going to be a really cute Christmas quilt. I usually go more traditional for Christmas but this is very fun.
Here's the block. She wanted us to leave the sections separate so she could mix them up for even more scrappiness. Can't wait to see how Rene' pulls them all together. I've never made a spiderweb block before and now I'm thinking maybe I should make some more. We used this tutorial.
That's it for my bee blocks. Now I need to make a mug rug for our guild Christmas party.
These are all fabulous. Love the fabricsReplyDelete
Beautiful, happy blocks!! Happy Thanksgiving!!ReplyDelete
Bright and cheerful bee blocks - especially love that spiderweb block:)ReplyDelete
I love your fabric choices for both quilts/blocks. Always lovely to have bright cheery fabric to work with.ReplyDelete
Love the non-traditional Christmas blocks.ReplyDelete
Your bee blocks are stunning! After making Rene's block I decided I definitely want to make more! That reminds me.....I need to post it on flickr!ReplyDelete
Love this! Your brights are inspired (of course!), and I love your neutral fabric too (shhhh, it will damage my reputation if anyone hears me say I love a neutral!).ReplyDelete
Spiderweb is on my bucket list... you make it hard to resist starting one!
A mug rug sounds like a perfect exchange for the Holidays. Love your pretty bright colors.ReplyDelete
Awesome spider web block, I love the vibrant colors. And the + blocks look great also, the grey is so soothing.ReplyDelete
I love the colours in all of these blocks. I think both of these quilts are going to turn out amazing.ReplyDelete
Your color combo is splendid, Anne!ReplyDelete
Aqua + red love! Thanksgiving Blessings!ReplyDelete
Another bee! Fun fun. Lovely blocksReplyDelete
Wow! You sure have some brights in your spider web pieces. Love them. You have the best color sense. I always like everything I see on your blog.ReplyDelete
Your version of Rene's block is SO pretty! Confession: I haven't made hers yet but plan to do so later today (12/11). So you put your off until the end of the month? I put mine off to the middle of the NEXT month! Ugh. The fabrics in the top blocks are beautiful!ReplyDelete
