WIP Wednesday . . . Bee Blocks

You know what the end of the month means around here? Yep . . . bee blocks.  Per my usual modus operandi I wait till the end of the month to get my bee blocks done. Hey, at least I get them done in the month they are actually due. I think that's worth something.

Up this month was a Mod Mosaic block for Carrie as part of our Boulder Modern Quilt Guild bee. I've admired quilts made from these blocks but have never made one myself. That's the fun of bees, you get a chance to try out a block and not commit to making an entire quilt. She has plans for a king size bed quilt with these which will be really nice. The colors are so relaxing and calm. Love the little bird.

I liked this block a lot but don't see myself making more anytime soon. It was a bit time consuming. I'm sure once you get the hang of it the process would speed up quite a bit. When I'm making something for the first time and for someone else I tend to slow down. Fear of doing it wrong is a big factor.

Also up this month were more churn dash blocks for Carla at LollyQuiltz. Our Mid Century Modern Bee made the same blocks for her last year in pretty much the same colors. This time round she added white and yellow to the palette.

And here is the first set of churn dash blocks made for Carla last year.

It will be her Juicy Fruit quilt. Don't you love the name?  She's going to have one delicious juicy quilt.

We have our own blog now too so if you'd like to see more go here.

  1. I love the mod mosaic block - and I even have most of those fabrics so could easily rustle up something similar! Thanks for sharing.

  2. As a lover of both birds and turquoise, I'm drawn to that first mosaic block. You KNOW I love those churn dash blocks!!

  3. As always, Anne, you've made such pretty blocks. Your color sense is impeccable! I agree... Carla's quilt is going to be delicious.


WaHoo!!! You're leaving me a comment. Thanks for stopping by and do come back again. Quilt on, Anne.
