It's my turn!

First off, thank you all for the pillow love yesterday!  That pillow is quite possibly my favorite that I've made so far, and that's saying a lot!  It was so much fun to try something new.

It's my turn in the super fabulous {Sew} Beautiful Bee this month, and I'm totally excited.  After making a test block a few weeks back, I knew exactly the block I wanted for the girls to make...


But I couldn't decide - did I want to go the same route I did with my test block and stick with loads of Anna Maria Horner?  Or, did I want to pull something else from my stash, like my collection of MoMo fabrics or some Modern Meadow?  I made a few different stacks of fabric, and finally over the weekend, I started to cut into my AMH stash, and therefore made a choice.  Indecisive no longer!  I busted out my rotary cutter and made the first few cuts before I changed my mind again.

I'm super excited for my packages to start arriving for the awesome girls in my bee, I can't wait to see how they all like this block.  I plan to sash these blocks, with some super skinny white sashing, so that they look a bit more like stars than spiderwebs.  I can't wait to see all these blocks come together.  I'll be making a bunch more of these blocks, too, because I really want this quilt to be mighty big and cozy.  And because some crazy part of me really likes paper piecing...
