March Bee Blocks

Not only did I finish my Bee (A Little Bit) Japanese blocks by the deadline this month, but I'm a week early! Woot woot! Crystal meticulously cut up teeny little 1 1/2" squares for us to make these darling scrapbuster blocks (instructions here)

Block #1



Block #2



Both Blocks


Crystal also had a really cute idea for personalizing her Bee quilt. She asked us to cut a 3.5" x 4.5" block from our leftover white fabric and applique a 1" piece of fabric from our own stash on it. Then we were to write our name, location, and our favorite quote/saying on the label with a fabric marker. Pretty cool, huh? I'm a bookworm and Ernest Hemingway is one of my favorite authors, so I used a quote of his that I love.
