April Believe Circle Bee Blocks
There hasn't been a lot of stitching going on lately but I did manage to complete my bee blocks for April with a day to spare. Whew!
Tiffany was our quilter this month and she challenged us with some half square rectangles in jewel tones. While these were a little slow to start, they were lots of fun to make. More than 30 different fabrics went into these blocks so they were great scrap/stash buster blocks.
The half square rectangles require a right and left side, which meant making half of the blocks one way and half another. Other bee members offered advice to make this less confusing, which was much appreciated. That is one benefit for waiting until the last minute to make these.
Thanks, Tiffany, for the challenge. This is going to be one bright quilt. I cannot wait to see the finish.
