Today I want to share my most recent bee blocks with you.
First up is the block I made for Lauree in the Cocorico bee.
Her theme for the month is 'Kitchen Couture'. I drafted up this little pattern of a Japanese style teapot my mum used to have. Hers was black, as most of these iron cast teapots are but I decided to make Lauree's teapot yellow just for fun!
Next up is my block for Patchwork 318 bee. Ayumi chose "Sweets' Shop" as her theme for the month.
I made a green tea and vanilla rose ice cream cone, topped with strawberry whipped cream and red chocolate bow. I managed to square this block up wrong at the very end! But thanks to all the wonderful people over on Flickr I'm now convinced this mistake isn't too bad after all :-)
I don't know about you but starting in a new bee always gets me a bit nervous!
Last up is Reene's block for Fresh Modern Bee 2. She asked us to make our signature block, and sent some wonderful Hope Valley fabric paired with a bit of solid. I asked her if I could add some bits from my stash to make this + & x block.
Not sure if it fits the bill as my signature block but I so enjoyed making my + & x blocks quilt that I really wanted to make another one of these blocks!
