November Bee Blocks

November bee blocks are finished and need to be mailed.
This month Modern Stitching Bee Jennie asked for scrappy stars using low volume backgrounds. She was very specific as to her colors and posted a photo to Flickr for our group to choose from. I chose red and green and my siggie block ended up looking like an Italian flag.
These pops of color are going to look so good once they are all sewn together.

Next up was Ange in the Stitch Tease Bee. She asked for house blocks and I got a little confused. I made the first one (pink) just my own version of a photo Ange posted on Flickr. Then I realized she actually gave us links with patterns to follow. The blue one turned out much better. It's from Lynne and Kerri's new book 500 Quilt Blocks. Ange wanted a fussy character in the door or window. I added a cute wheelbarrow on the pink one, too.

Now I have 4 weeks to finish my blocks in the 4x5 bee. That is definitely doable.
