Sew Fresh Quilt Bee – November Link Up
It’s time for the first Sew Fresh Quilt Bee linky party!
I am really having a wonderful time working on these Bee Blocks!
I don’t usually sew without a plan already laid out. But I am finding this improv style of piecing to be nice and relaxing. Not a whole lot of though or planning going on here. I am keeping my charm squares whole and am piecing in a wonky slab block style.
First I found some scraps in prints and solids that went with the colours found in the charm squares. Then I added a slanty bit to the side of each charm and trimmed them top and bottom in preparation for the next scrap.
Then I added a bit more, in no set order. Each time trimming before adding a little more. If my scraps weren’t wide enough, I would piece them together. Then I trim the block to 12 and a half inches square.
Here are my first three blocks that I showed you earlier this month.
So that brings my total to 11 finished blocks. I have 21 more charms to go, for a total of 32.
I’m happy to have you join the hive! To read all about the Sew Fresh Quilt Bee click here.
