I sewed curves!!! That’s the beauty of bees, trying something new. Maybe there’s a block you’ve been wanting to make—the x & + block for example, but you just don’t have the time to make a entire quilt of the block. I’ve made it twice this year already, without the commitment of making an entire quilt top and actually quilting it. I love picking the fabric for a block, sewing it up, and mailing it off. All in one day!
Sewing these curves was easier than I expected. In fact, I’d say it was easy as pizza pie (which is what my daughter nicknamed this block). This block finished at 24” square.
Don’t you just love the crossword puzzle fabric? The recipient requested fabric appropriate for a young boy. I had so much fun picking fabrics that are outside my usual girly tastes.
And this is my blocks for Make It Modern. I used some of my all-time most favorite fabrics including Farmdale, Washi, and Flea Market Fancy. What a great scrap-busting take on the snowball block!
Are you in any bees? Two bees I’m in are on hiatus after this summer, but after a little break I’ll be on the lookout for another one to join. Any suggestions?
