Back with some Bee blocks

This week I managed to get some Bee blocks done in between work and another cold.  I must admit I love making Bee blocks like this one…

Blocks that are more complex and use small 2 inch squares and lots of scrap pieces…. blocks that I would love to see a quilt made out of but do not have the patience to make 20 or 30 of them for a whole quilt.

These blocks are perfect for a quilting Bee because you share the quilting load… making two blocks each makes the quilt manageable.  This block is called Scrap Jar Star and you can find the free pattern on A Little Bit Biased’s website.  It was just what I needed to kick start my creativity this month.

  1. I love these blocks!! Scrappy is my favorite…. and I agree that I would love to see a whole quilt made of these blocks!! It would be a long term project, since I am predominately a hand piecer, but I think I need to put this on my “to do” list….
    I hope you are feeling better!
