Granny Square May Stash Bee Block

Stash Bee

In Hive 9 of the Stash Bee for May, the queen requested a Granny Square block. She just asked for bright colors but let us choose our own color palettes…

Is anyone surprised I grabbed blue or went with a color gradient? Yeah, me either. πŸ˜‰

I also want to share the second pattern I purchased during #MayIsForMakers. I chose to buy the Sea Star quilt pattern by Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs.

Cheryl makes amazing patterns, and I just love the combination of a star and plus block in this design. I have a hunch this pattern might come in handy for a baby quilt in a few months. <3

And I am laughing at myself again. Did I just by her pattern because it is in a colorway that speaks to me? Look at the two images in my post today. Ah, well, at least I know what I like, right???


  • Ha! I find myself doing the same thing when browsing patterns. I’m looking at one now that is in gradients of blue/green and I’ll probably push that ‘Buy’ button. I love the design, buti it was the color choice on the cover quilt that caught my eye. πŸ™‚

  • Good Morning Yvonne! I love the blue fabrics you chose for the Granny Square block, it is lovely! Plus, I think you made a great decision to purchase the pattern you did; I really like the plus blocks, they make the pattern really unique. Thanks for sharing and have a fantastic creative day!

  • The heart wants what the heart wants…yours loves blue πŸ™‚ But I’m really glad that it does, because I love the fabrics in the Granny Square block.

  • I do love some good blues myself! And I’ve had a granny square quilt on my to-do list for a while, your block looks great! πŸ™‚

  • I’m in the same boat – blue just speaks to me. Your bee block is beautiful – you nailed the gradient and your piecing is awesome as usual!

  • Yes, it looks like you. Maybe you should take off your cobalt glasses. Just kidding. I always slip a little signature Kaffe print into a bee block if I can. Or green. That way they know it’s ‘me’

  • Ha, yes! It can be very difficult to not be influenced by the colour presented to us when buying so many things I think. And I would find just the name of it a big hook too, anything with ‘sea’ and ‘star’ in it has me half way won over before I even see it!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
