January Bee Blocks

Phew, I'm glad to have my January bee blocks behind me now!  Between the deadline for the 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee and all of my other bees, there were a boatload of blocks to be made this month!  Definitely some gorgeous blocks in the mix this month.

I finished up Bree's fun polaroid block for String Me Along, using various photo-like scraps from my stash, including Mendocino,  Ruby Star Rising, It's a Hoot, Little Apples, and Peacock Lane.  I really adore this block, it is so cute!  Can't wait to see how the other blocks in the group turn out!

For Cherie in the {Sew} Beautiful bee, I made a Carpenter's Star, using Cherie's tutorial.  The tutorial is really easy to follow, I definitely recommend it!  I really adore this block, I will definitely be saving the tutorial somewhere safe!

For Lynne in the Stash Trad bee, she asked for her eponymous block, the LynneBobSquarePants block, using Kona Charcoal for the background and brights for the prints.  This was my second go-round with Lynne's block, and I apparently read the directions better this time because the block came together much more easily, yay!

And finally, for the 4x5 bee this quarter, I made weathervane blocks for everyone, and put together a simple tutorial for the block as well.  It was a really fun block to work on and experiment with fabric choices on!

In other news, my Summer Sampler Plus quilt was featured on the Modern Quilt Guild's 100 Days of Modern Quilting yesterday, which was pretty exciting.  Definitely an honor to be featured over there!

Hope you're having a great week so far.  Happy Tuesday everyone :)

Linking up with Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story today, hop on over there to see some other fun sewing projects!
