March: Quilting Bee Block

Sew New to Me Virtual Quilting Bee March 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!
