February Bee Blocks

This weekend I was able to get all of my bee blocks completed for February, including my blocks for my beehive in the 3 x 6 Sampler Quilt Mini Bee. 

3 x 6 1st Quarter 2011 Beehive 24

Here they are in all their glory, I had initially planned on making my entire block out of hexies, but I quickly realized, that while I love hexies, hand sewing is just not my thing. 

This block is for A Blond Quilts, Bryanna requested navy blue, white and a burnt orange for a throw quilt she is making. 

For AmieJ Designs, Amie requested aqua, brown and orange for a quilt for her couch. 

For 2 May Boys, Dawn requested rainbow colors with grey and white for a quilt she is working on.

For erika4303, erika requested red black and white

For Sunnyauh, Jennifer requested red, white and aqua and is making a quilt for her guest bedroom. 

Lastly, this is for Techalum, Donna requested "make it a rainbow" and said that she liked rich jewel tone colors.

Hopefully my beehive likes their blocks!

This block is for the Simply Strings BeeAllison sent us these fun heart shapes along with some scrap strips in a variety of blue, green, and pink prints.  She requested that we include at least one strip from our own stash in her color scheme per heart. 

This is such a cute idea and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with in arranging these adorable hearts into a quilt!

For the solids bee, Gwen requested Mondrian blocks, which are color block blocks with sashing in between each color block.  I ran out of grey sashing, I really wanted to break up the two end pieces of khaki a little more, the more I look at it, the more I may dig through my stash to see if I have any scraps of Kona Coal laying around to do just that...

But for now, here is the finished product:

I have one more block to complete for February, my MQG is putting together a quilt for Project Linus, and I want to make another block to donate to the quilt. 

These blocks will be on their way to their new owners in the next few days, hope they enjoy!

A little birdie told me that my 100th post will be comming up, and I'm feeling a giveaway to celebrate!  Stay tuned to win some yummy fabric...


  1. All your blocks are wonderful! Your eye for color is terrific :)

  2. That's quite an accomplishment.

    Yes, the solids block would look really great with a couple of diagonal breaks in those two big side pieces.

    But, truthfully, there'll probably be so many small pieces in the other blocks, that yours might give a welcome rest to the already looks really good.
