If you are following along with Molli Sparkles’ Honey Pot Bee, then you know he has released quite a few “bonus” blocks for the bee.
I considered making a few of the extra blocks from February and March, but in the end I opted to go with the first two kind of “official” March Honey Pot Bee blocks: the As You Wish Block by Alida from Tweety Loves Quilting and the Echo Block by Amy from 13 Spools.
I added in two print fabrics for the As You Wish Block. The block is paper pieced, and I found that just a dab of glue stick helped me align the hearts and text print. I kept the fabric on the sides of the block larger than called for so that I can trim it down to fit what I need as I lay out the quilt top later.
The Echo Block is a striking design; my husband though it looked like a reverberation of sound through a tunnel (so well named, Amy!). I could definitely see upsizing this into a large graphic single block quilt.
I am purposefully trying to use a different “background” color for the blocks to get a nice random distribution of the solids I chose for my palette. These photos aren’t going to win any beauty contests, but we’ve been enjoying a bit of much needed rain the past week in my area, so I am not going to complain.
Linking up with Main Crush Monday.
