After spending the morning deChristmasing our house, (so depressing, I know. I feel like I just put all that stuff up, and it's already time to take it down) I hunkered down in my sewing room and paper pieced my little heart out to get my 4x5 bee hive mates blocks completed. I used QuiltJane's tutorial and paper piecing pattern from the Desperate Housewives Quilt Along to put together these blocks, and I am in love. I don't know that I'd have the time or the patience to make an entire quilt of these blocks, but they are my favorite block I've made in some time, and totally worth the time and effort.
my test block
As you can see, most of the ladies in my hive (including myself) are into aqua/blue/green, so I had fun digging through my scrap bins that are overflowing with different blue fabrics to put these blocks together. Hopefully they will be just as smitten with these blocks as I am, I know it will be hard to ship these off to their new homes later this week!
I'll be linking up to sew modern monday!
