In addition to this block Krista and I traded for some scraps so that I could have a variety for my Rainbow block. In return I made her another wonky star that needs to head her way!
The center was a little pink and purple wonky star that I trimmed up to fit into a blue and green wonky. I hadn't really planned on this. I was hoping to get a few wonky stars on one block, but I decided I didn't know enough to make that happen!
For the Fresh and Funky bee our host sent over some Japanese fabric. This is the first time I have worked with this kind and it was lovely. She is creating a zig zag quilt and I put together 2 blocks using half square triangles. Not a block I would volunteer to do for my self, but easy eough when your only making 8!
The brown fabric was the neatest thing. It had tiny cross hatches woven in... I really liked it.
This was the first month working with my Christmas bee fabric. March and Aprils fabric all came about the same time along with the block above and some packages of scrap fabric. I was also still getting bee blocks back from the houses a while back. I am sure something has gotten lost because I had about 10 packages arrive in two weeks! Happy Mail Day!
The centers were fussy cut to include russian christmas scenes.
The host of this block just recently welcomed a Russian born girl into the family after marring her son.
My other Christmas block for March (we make two) was a gold and silver production.
Pairing gold and silver raindeer and ornaments with a strip or two of silk created these lovely blocks.
However if you didn't watch it you could get your centers off.
But I thought they were even and might be if sewn right....
Also, I am starting to get pictures posted of my trees for my quilt from the Solid Bee blocks. So far I have three great trees that will be great in the village!
