September Bee Blocks

Jennifer, my Stash Bee Hive #2 member, requested a 6-inch finished postage stamp i-spy block for this month. She is making this quilt for her young niece, which makes me think about my niece (who will be turning 2 tomorrow!!). Her tutorial is really great, and since the block finished out so small, I couldn't limit myself to making...

Stash Bee Hive 2 July Blocks

Kristen asked for 2 blocks following Molli Sparkles' Union Jack tutorial but using an assortment of colors (although the traditional blue and red could have been used, I chose to go with the non-traditional groupings below). It seemed like a complicated block and I definitely took my time piecing the first one, but it turned out to be worth it because...

February Hive 2 Stash Bee Block

I have to admit that when I first read Jo's request for the February block for Hive #2, it struck a bit of fear into my heart. I definitely panicked a bit at the thought of applique, but Jo wrote a fantastic tutorial. So, after a few deep breaths... I jumped in. I chose 3 Kona solid grays (whose...
