Yesterday, I might've gone a little overboard. I worked on the quilt blocks for one of my bees. And well, ummmm, I might've done them all.
See, everyone's making the same block, and already chose their colors. I thought I'd get a head start, and then my head start turned into a let's see how many I can get done today. The block we're making is super simple.. I think I shared about it before, but you can see it here. Everyone in the bee is using Kona White for the rails, just to make it easier for everyone else. Here they are...
Micchia requested orange & light/blue aqua
|Simply Color is the Center Block and the Orange Dots is by Michael Miller|
|Green center block is by Simply Color and the Polka Dots are from the Dumb Dot line by Michael Miller|

|The anchors are from Sarah Jane's Out to Sea (it's a navy blue) and the center block is also Simply Color. I LOVE how the anchors face out from the center block, no matter which way you turn it!|
Just to let yall know... I used the same red for my three friends who requested red. I think it's actually from a Christmas line (maybe Kate Spain???) but I'm not sure. I picked it up at my LQS in their fat quarter section and it didn't have selvage information on it. Figures I would get the one that didn't have the printed side. Sorry! It's so cute and cheery that I had to use it for yall.
Here are three of my blocks. I went ahead and made three so that way I'd have 14 blocks total. While I requested purples from my bee friends, I used some gray, white, and black in mine. I'll be tying in those colors throughout the quilt and thought they would complement nicely.
|Center block is Pinhead Black by Michael Miller and the outside purple is Good Morning Positively Purple Honeycombs by Me and My Sister for Moda Fabrics|
|Center block is from simply Color and the polka dots are (surprise!) Michael Miller|
|Center is a gray print from Simply Color and the outside is the same grape purple dot from Michael Miller as the very first block at the top of this post! For some reason, the color is really off in this picture!|
That's all for today, yall! Take care!
