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.
All exciting work!! Did you ever post the midnight starfish in the solids?
If people want to see my Midnight Starfish block in solids, they just need to click on the Midnight Starfish link at the top of this post.
