Molli kicked off January for the Honey Pot Bee on the 4th, and it has been fun watching all the blocks already created via Instagram (#TheHoneyPotBee) and the Facebook group. I was able to get my blocks finished on Sunday afternoon, and I am really excited to see how my blocks are looking together already!
Our first queen was Angie @Gnome Angel, and she selected the Strawberry block. There are two tutorials you can use depending on the size you want the block to finish. I chose to make the smaller size for my block. As you may remember, my fabric pull for the bee was a grouping of Kona solids, and I decided to use the Berry for the Strawberry and pull coordinating prints to fill out the berry and give it some interest. I used Hyacinth for the background and Bluegrass for the center stem, pulling 2 more solids for the greenery.
Molli was the second queen for January, and he picked the Starflower Block. I opted to stick with Hyacinth for the background and created a two tone stare in Salmon and Shell.
Things are off to a great start! Linking up to Main Crush Monday.
