Wee Bee Learning: This block was, of course, simple, as is the theme of the bee. I liked the colors I used, though– it’s cheerful!
99 Bee: This is Double Mint from the 99 Modern Blocks book. I wasn’t thrilled with the fabrics, but it turned out kind of cute. The triangles are paper pieced, and I kept putting it off because every time I paper piece, I have to learn the technique all over again. For some reason I forget how to do it between projects. It was really pretty easy, though, once I forced myself to do it. I’m quite proud of how my points line up–way better than I had expected! Since it went together so quickly, I did both the blocks she sent fabric for instead of just the one required.
Stash Bee: She asked for wonky scrappy stars with a Kona Coal background. She wanted one, two, or three stars in a block, but I took the easy way out and just did one. Sometimes I’m all about extra effort in a bee, but I just wasn’t feeling it this month. I have too much else going on right now, and I’m still not feeling 100% with my pregnancy.
