I added two blocks to my growing grouping of Honey Pot Bee blocks for September. I was drawn to the Scrappy Cross Block, and I actually went back and looked at my group photograph from August to help me decide what fabric to use. After looking at the balance, I decided that two blocks would be a nice addition (get it: cross… addition?!): one in the solids that are my base color palette and a second, scrappy version using prints.
Erin from Quilt by Starlight selected the Scrappy Cross Block by Kirsty from Bonjour Quilts. The block sews together quickly and it was really fun to make two different versions of the same block!
I am really loving seeing my grouping of blocks grow each month. I see many potential ideas for filling in and expanding the blocks out, including going back and adding in more duplicate blocks using prints like I did this month. It seems like a long wait each month, but I have a busy September in front of me. I have a few quilts to make in preparation for Quilt Market, so I’d better get started!
What are you sewing this month?

These are really looking fabulous, love your fun prints mixed in with the solids,
I am looking forward to seeing them all put together. You did a great job in selecting your fabrics.
I am making a Christmas quilt for my sister; a rose and cream quilt using the Crown of Thorns block; and I have 4 quilts to bind ( 1.5 accomplished so far!)……..
Hi Yvonne, oh how behind I am on my honey pot bee blocks and yours are looking so fabulous! I might just have to set aside some time this coming weekend to stitch up a few, fingers crossed.
I do like the addition of prints, your honey pot blocks are coming together quite nicely.
I love the little “pops” the print blocks give the quilt. I have to say I’m really excited to see how you choose to lay the blocks out. With all the different blocks sizes it will make for a great asymmetrical quilt top. Very little piecing going on in my little neck of the quilting world, but the thread is flying from lots of quilting 🙂
I love that you made contrasting blocks! I love that particular shade of purple. 🙂
Your blocks are looking fantastic together! How many more months are there?! Good call on the colors for the Scrappy Cross blocks!
Oh, my goodness, these block all look so delicious together! I really like this new one! Have a great week!
Amazing how the change in color can make one seem larger than the other. I like the variety of blocks and can’t wait to see how this comes together.
It is amazing how different your blocks look. The print one balances your strawberry block well.
Those two blocks look super. Nice choices to balance with the rest of the blocks.
Your blocks are gorgeous. I love the solid dominance with a tad of print in there. Have a great monday!
Ooh, these are totally yum! I love the colors in these blocks! This block looks super fun to make as well!
I really like this block and I’m eventually going to make it myself. It’s a great block isn’t it.
Nice contrasts with those colours, I like the solids, but the prints with the other blocks are super too.
You have kept the pace very well . Every time I think l will play catch up something rears its ugly head
I really like those skinny scrappy plus signs. Both versions are very cool.
Love the new blocks!!
Gorgeous blocks – the solids are so dramatic!!
Your blocks are great Yvonne! I love the blocks for this month and you’ve done a great job with your fabric selection.
Love the mix of solids and scrappy blocks. It’s going to be a fun quilt to watch come together.
