You know the saying, "Hindsight is 20/20"? Well it certainly is true in this case..
When looking back through my photos of the blocks and strips I created for each of the members in the Stitch Tease Bee, I realized I probably should have taken better photos.
But here you have it. A brief show and tell of what I made for each person.
Helen asked for wonky stars on a Kona Ash background. She wanted the centers different from the points and to please use bright colors.
Danny gave us free reign to make whatever we wanted based on some of her favorite blocks. I chose to fussy cut some fabrics and make Polaroid blocks. These 7 blocks were sewn into one long strip.
Katy asked for blocks based on the print in her focal fabric, Circa 52 by Monaluna's fun modes of transportation. I chose to make an appliqued bicycle with a stack of fabric bolts on the back, topped off with a hitch-hiking Jack...Katy's globe trotting stuffed bear.
Dianne asked for pinwheels. Pinwheels are one of my favorite blocks. I tried to incorporate a few different styles of pinwheels in bright, fun colors.
Susan wanted white wonky stars in a flurry of bright fabrics. I incorporated the July girl for our shared birth month.
I have to admit Annabella's request for curves had me a little worried but after making the Retro Flowers quilt last year I decided to use the template and make some scrappy drunkard's path blocks. I was also the one responsible for sewing Annabella's quilt together.
This was such a great bee and I am so happy we are going to do it again. Round 2 begins next month. Sadly, we are losing Danny, but we have gained 5 new members and will make it a more traditional bee. Check back next month as we kick off round 2. I will be the first in the bee to choose a block and have everyone make it for me.
