This month, I had fun bee blocks.
Katie asked for Rugby Stripe blocks. I mentioned them last week but took a (mildly) better photo of them for you.
Shannon asked for "Fall" blocks. I immediately did this pumpkin based off this tutorial which I found through Michele.
But then I wanted to leave Modern Maples for someone else, so I thought and thought and googled and thought and came up with this.
And I really really love it! I just used 2 1/2 strips yellow and tan scraps and a template I made to fit my size requirements. Then I slapped some heat and bond on the back and ironed the dresden blades down. I then zig-zagged around all of the edges for extra security and then did the same with the black center. You can't tell in the pic (it was cloudy this morning) but my black circle actually has a brown dot pattern on it that I thought was perfect to represent the seeds. I love it when serendipity and a plan come together!! haha
Now I want to make both of these blocks again to make new pillows for my couches. And since I accidentally cut enough squares for 2 pumpkin blocks, I just might do that. ;)
What blocks are you making this month and what do you prefer working on? One quilt at a time or mixing it up with bee blocks??
