March Bee Blocks

The Bee Hive (Swarm Tisha, #beehiveswarmtisha on IG)

Our block this month was Autumn Chain Block, chosen by Kaitie (@thegingerquilter). She chose navy, bright saturated pink, light grey and light blue in the following arrangement. This block went together quickly. I like the different variations shown in the tutorial.

Here's the 5-inch signature block I made for Kaitie from my scraps.

Robin asked us to make 16 teal and white HSTs and sew them together as we liked, a bit of "HST Hysteria." I decided on 8 teals and made two HSTs of each for a scrappy block. (#1 Tip for HSTs: Make sure you trim them up to the appropriate size for a square, accurate block before attaching to others!) Here's my finished block:

This month Meghan had us make blue exploding blocks using a tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Company. Since we used 6 fabrics, our squares were: two 4-inch center squares followed by 5-inch, 6.25-inch, 8-inch, and 10.5-inch squares. This made a finished block approximately 14 inches square. This was a super fast block. I'm thinking it would make a fun baby quilt to just keep exploding until it was between 36 and 48-inch square.

In summary, I like dots. ;-)

    I like dots too!! I remember my mother wearing a navy blue, white polka dot dress when I was a little girl. I just loved her in that dress!! :-)
