I’m behind in blogging about progress on my Terra Australis quilt and the bee blocks that I made in March. The block I like the best is the practice block I made for the Midnight Starfish block that I designed for the 2016 Paintbrush Studio New Block Blog Hop. I made the practice block up using my Terra Australis fabric and then used the solids provided by Paintbrush Studio for the actual blog hop.
I also made four more Half-Square Triangle blocks from Jeni Baker’s Patchwork Essentials: The Half-Square Triangle Book for my Terra Australis quilt.
For Stash Bee Hive 7, our queen bee requested a scrappy cross.
And for The Bee Hive, our queen bee asked us to make a Wanta Fanta block using mustard, purple, teal, blue, and grey-colored fabrics. This was my first time paper-piecing part of a block which was good practice for April’s Hidden Gem block which is entirely paper-pieced.
Linking up to Quilter in the Closet: Building Blocks Tuesday.
