I had to make my bee blocks (seriously, why do I wait until the end of the month?), and here's what I ended up with:
The tutorial is here, and they are pretty fast. I wish the instructions incorporated the extra HST blocks rather than having double what you need, but it just meant I got to make two more and start my own collection of these blocks. I figure I'll just make a bunch of them when I need to use up some scraps. We'll see how big this can get.
I also made a couple of x-plus blocks. I've seen this around and I love them. We're having a scrap challenge for quilt group this month (on Wednesday - eek!). I wanted to have some scrappy-ish blocks to show. What do you think?
I'm just going to slowly work my way through my yellow, gray and aqua stuff. Add to it here and there. Just for me kinda quilt. So far, I'm loving it. Tutorial here, although I used these measurements to get a 12" block.
