WIP Wednesday - Stash Bee Blocks

This year, I joined Stash Bee 2016.  If you're interested, you can sign up for Stash Bee 2017 starting November 1.

I was Queen Bee for September and requested an HST block using white, grey, black, and one orange.  I used the following Kona colours in the block I made:  Iron, Coal, Silver, Pepper, White, Charcoal, Shadow, and Tangerine.


Here is a close up of six of the blocks.  Great shades of orange.  Thanks to all my hive mates.


One hive mate sent me two blocks, and I'm waiting on two more blocks to arrive in the mail.  On the advice of Dena @ No Frickin' Blog Yet, I think I'm going to make another four blocks so it ends up being square.

This is probably not the final layout, but I just love it!!  I'm going to leave it on my design wall so I can look at it every day.


Time to start making more blocks.  I'm excited to get this top all pieced together.

I hope you're all working on something fun this week.

  2. I can only agree with Yvonne! This block can absolutely stand alone but seeing all of them together is also great. I'm curious on how you'll be quilting it :-)
