I spent this past Saturday making many bee blocks, which was a very enjoyable way to pass a Saturday morning. These blocks are all for the Stash Bee, but for 3 different Hives… (and don’t miss out on the Fabri-Quilt fabric bundle giveaway I am hosting!)
I am a member of Hive 2, and hive mate Christina asked for low volume Sunday Morning blocks. My LV stash is growing, so I thought I would pull what I had and see what worked together and how many blocks I could make. I ended up with a very tone on tone muted grouping that I hope will work (but I really love) and a brighter grouping that seems to match the tutorial Christina put together a bit better.
The blocks come together very quickly; I spent much more time cutting the fabric than I did sewing it all together.
Christina asked for a favorite easy recipe. My husband and I love avocados, and one of our favorite quick meals to make are avocado burritos. This recipe makes 4 avocado burritos, which serves 2 adults.
- 4 tortillas
- 1 avocado
- 1 tomato
- Sharp cheddar cheese
- Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
Cut the avocado into quarters and dice one quarter onto the center of a tortilla, forming a line down the middle. Cut the tomato into quarters and dice one quarter onto the tortilla next to the avocado. Slide or grate cheese to your preference. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. Roll the tortillas, place on a large plate, and cut in half. Heat in a microwave on high for about 1 minute, divide onto 2 plates. Note that you don’t have to warm the burritos, but we really recommend you give it a try!
Carla wants to know if I ever decided to get a tattoo, what would it be and where would it go? Wow, I have honestly never given that any thought. The first thing that leaped to mind was a rainbow, and that feels about right (although I immediately started wondering if the colors would fade, ha, I’m such a details person!). As for where? It would depend on how the rainbow was done. I would actually really like it as a line of rainbow colors around my wrist, probably, looking like a bracelet.
One last gate crash block from me this month for Shauna in Hive 9. Shauna tested the Tessellated Leaves quilt pattern for me, and she was my most consistent person to link up to Quilty Thankful Thursday. I am so thankful to know Shauna, as she was one of the people to introduce me to the Stash Bee! I really like the secondary pattern that gets formed between the different directions of the geese in the middle of this block. 🙂
Shauna wants to know my favorite easy quilt pattern? An alternate between a 9 patch and a solid square is probably my favorite, but that is heavily biased by the fact that the two snuggly quilts we had at home like Shauna describes were that pattern!
