I've been caught up with my bee blocks for a while now.....just need to put them in the mail.
For do.Good Stitches, Erica requested asterisk blocks. I have made these once before for our guild block lotto. This is a fun block to make. I like the larger size - 9.5" rather than 6". I am doing better about cutting into my treasured fabrics. Here I used some precious Hope Valley and Anna Maria Horner. The black strips are from a quilt I made years ago for my oldest son.
Cindy is doing a spider web quilt in solids with texty, low volume centers for our MCM Bee. I think I could make these blocks in my sleep by now! I already had the centers prepped for my blocks, and coming up with strips of solids was no problem. I had to resist cutting into my "bolts" of solids when I have plenty in my scrap basket. As a reminder, the spiderweb block tutorial can be found here.

Carla's block was put in the mail a while ago, but I neglected to post a picture. She is continuing with her juicy fruit churn dash quilt and requested more blocks for that. I love these little churn dashes put together in a bigger block. She has the best tutorial for making these if you are interested in making some yourself.
I am so happy to be a part of two wonderful bees. What about you? Do you participate in any online bees? If so, what's your favorite block made so far?
Thanks for stopping by,
