March: Quilting Bee Block
Back in the swing of things for the Sew New to Me Virtual Quilting Bee, March was Corey at Little Miss Shabby’s month. (If you are a fan of Flea Market Fancy, you *must* go check out the header on her blog!) Corey sent us a beautiful palette of fabrics – blue, green, gray, white. She asked us to make blocks using triangles and squares. Pinwheels, stars, whatever we wanted. She wanted attention to small details and piecing.
I’ve never made a block like this and it was really fun. It is certainly a lesson in precision and patience. I have a lot of respect for those that make entire quilts like this!
I added in a little Dolce fabric, as it matched perfectly! And you wouldn’t believe I used to be good at math. Heck, 1/3 of my degree is math…but I calculated wrong and ended up needing to add a border to make the square 12.5″. I think it looks cute though. I told Corey she could take it off if it’s not her vision though!
