Quiltstory Block Party

Fresh Poppy Design

I've decided to enter a few blocks into Quiltstory's Block Party.  There are three categories, Traditional, Modern and Creative, and I've found a block to enter for each category.

For the traditional category, I am going to submit my most recent bee block for the 3 x 6 bee:

1st quarter 3x6 bee block

These are hand pieced hexies sewn onto White Kona Cotton with 3 borders surrounding the hexagons.

For the modern category, I am going to submit this block:

3x6 beehive 15

This is a bee block for the last round of the 3 x 6 bee and is a rainbow wagon wheel design.

For the creative category, I am going to submit this:

January Solid Block Bee for Natalie

This block measures 8 1/2 x 11 inches and was made for Natalie in January for the solid bee.  This block was fun to make and design using the paper piecing method to create the striped triangle. 

Be sure to head over to Quiltstory and check out all the awesome block submissions!
