In October, Amisha asked for hexies on a solid background. She sent this really cool moda crossweave on which to put them. I really liked playing with the arrangement once I got the hexies ready to stitch down. But to be honest I procrastinated this one for quite some time. It really scared me! I only finished this a couple of weeks ago. *hangs head in shame*
I think it looks like a chemistry diagram. In a cool nerdy way.
November, Jen sent this awesome 50s/60s -ish print to use in a log cabin. And considering my recent love affair with orange and aqua she sent me that combo for my block. I adore polka dots!
January, Rebecca asked for some wonky houses. This block turned out better than I expected. I've done a house block before but it's been a while. I like doing reverse applique on house blocks because sometimes you can be a little more detailed. Plus, it's just fun to do something different!
I took some pictures of the process I used to do the reverse applique, I'm hoping to put that post together soon.
Bee blocks are really a great skill builder. It's nice to be able to focus on just a block or two and learn something new. Hopefully, I'll be able to finish my blocks for February today! Thank goodness for an extra day this year!
