This month's Stash Bee block for my hive is a paper pieced block. There had been other paper pieced blocks, but not in my hive. Queen Lauren asked for a paper pieced block called Zeplin. She said she likes bright colors and to have fun with the fabrics. That wasn't a ton of guidance, but I took her at her word and this is what I came up with:
I like how the block came together, and Lauren mentioned that there were no
points to match! My favorite kind of block! I actually really like the block, though I'm not sure I'd want to do enough to make a full sized project out of it. And it was good to brush up on my paper piecing skills; I hadn't done any in a while.
The Stash Bee will start taking sign ups on November 1st for 2017. This was my first year and I am absolutely doing it again! It's a fun way to engage with other quilters from around the globe, and it's neat to try lots of different blocks that you wouldn't do otherwise, without the commitment of making a whole lot of them. I'll post the link when sign-ups are open, but if anyone is interested and has any questions, let me know.
