For my recent reign as Queen Bee (back in March), I chose the Sliced Scrappy block from Don’t Call me Betsy. Thought it might be nice in my current favourite colour scheme – grey, red, white and aqua.
The worker bees did not disappoint. I’ve had all the blocks for awhile. What I struggled with was how to put it altogether. It’s not done yet but it’s partway. Hence the WiP title of this blog post.
The picture is a bit deceptive – it’s not really very big at this stage. Maybe a cot quilt size? But not really a cot quilt theme/colour scheme! Quilt group gals to the rescue. Jane suggested putting all these blocks together then setting it off centre on either a grey or red background.So that’s the next decision. Along with how big I should make it.
Forgive the dodgy picture. The wind was picking up and most of the snaps I got looked like this:
Then it started to rain. So I gave up. But you get the idea right?
And while we’re talking about Bees… here are a few other blocks I’ve finished up of late. And happy to say I am now up to date on bee blocks. Whew!
Paper pieced Road to Fortune for Kelly in QCA Bee #1.
Refractatorium (designed by Jane of Need It Want It Quilt) for our newest wombat, Melissa for the new round of Wombat Stew.
And I’m Queen Bee again! In a different bee! These blocks are based on the Garden Lattice block Stitchery Dickory Dock and it’s what the Care Circle of do.good Stitches are making for me.
I’ve been a busy little bee of late, but boy it feels good to be all caught up!
