I’ve changed my mind on what bee block I would like for my month as queen bee, and I hope its not too late. I will approach my group to see if anyone has started on my block yet and go from there.
This idea just had to get out of my head and I had a bit of time this morning to work on it (the kids are both sick at home). My plan is to make these stripy blocks and then set them with a solid color once I’ve collected all of my blocks.
So how do you make these?
Step 1: Curate a small pile of a single rainbow-y color (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet) with about 5-7 prints and solids.
Step 2: Cut strips of varying widths from 1.5″ to 3″. Arrange the strips in a way that is pleasing to your eye, or grab the strips randomly for a wabi-sabi block.
Step 3: Piece your strips together, iron and trim block to whatever size maximizes the pieced area. And done!
Below is the start of something I think!
