November Bee Blocks

November was Queen Becky's turn in Stash Bee.  She asked for kaleidoscope blocks.

I think this was my first bee block that used a paper template.  I was not a fan of cutting using that template and am glad I only had to make 2 blocks that way!  I hope Becky likes her blocks!

Bee Inspired scheduled everything so that the last Queen was in October, so this marks the end of the year for me in terms of Bee blocks. 

Bee Inspired is changing how they do things for next year, so there is no "bee" in that we will not be making blocks for each other.  I believe I am slotted to continue in Stash Bee, though.  It's fun to try all kinds of blocks in different color schemes without the commitment of an entire quilt. I also really enjoy the social aspect of bees and knowing that blocks I made end up in quilts all around the country and the world.

  1. Emily. I’m with you. I don’t like making templates for quilt blocks. I think it’s because I always cut them a tad too big or small or crooked. I like foundation paper piecing tho. You could probably have drawn the block and paper pieced these.... anyway they turned out lovely. I’m already a tiny bit homesick for Bee Inspired but to change is to grow as they say. Happy Holiday Season.
