When it was my turn to be queen bee for Sew-Euro-Bee-An a long time ago I asked for blocks in blues and turquoise. Anything went. Improv, pieced, appliqué, traditional, modern, solids, prints, batiks…. I got some wonderful blocks back. Sadly one member of the bee had to opt out due to too many commitments and one other member just disappeared so I have less blocks than I technically should. However, I really love all the ones I got and have decided to sash them all with grey to give them some cohesion. As the blocks are different sizes this is a great way to sew them all together without too much trouble.
I’ve only sewn one row together so far but will have to wait with the other rows until Kindergarten starts again as I need to lay them all out on the floor again. I’m also wondering if I should make another two blocks to fill those two rows that only have three blocks in them?
This quilt will end up being a nice lap size, I think, and I’m really looking forward to snuggling under it this winter.
