Its coming to the end of the fourth (my second) quarter for the 4x5 Modern Bee, and guess who left theirs till the last minute again? Yep. Me. Error.
I wanted to do some sort of wonky star with lots of negative space, but I was sewing these between Christmas and New Years and really couldn't work up the energy to battle the hoards of sale's shoppers in Dunelm to go fetch some more white. So I chose another of my very favourite blocks, the Starflower. Jennifer has a great tutorial for this block over on her lovely blog, Elison Lane Quilts.
I showed you one of them yesterday, but I'm gonna show you again because I don't have any other single pictures of them...
And here's one of the bunch!
A lot of trimming went into these blocks... and I was using a VERY blunt blade (see above for reasons the shop wasn't visited). I fear I may have done some permanent damage to my cutter wielding hand...
This quarter was an odd one, because all of us had blue/aqua as one of our colours, and 4 out of 6 of us also had green. I was thinking of sitting the next quarter out, but instead signed up to be a caretaker. What a change of heart eh?!
I hope everyone likes them :-)
