I am almost caught up with my weekly “Blockheads” challenge. Read about it here – or better yet, join in the fun.
I just couldn’t resist this one since it is hosted by some of my favorite designers. Betsy Chutchian, Jo Morton, Lisa Bongean, Lynne Hagmeier, Jan Patek and Carrie Nelson are taking turns designing a block each Wednesday for 48 weeks.
Week 4 - “Beeskep” is designed by Jan Patek. I love bees and this one was fun to make. I altered the pattern slightly by piecing my strips unevenly. I wanted to make it look more random. I may even add a little bee coming out of the skep (if spring ever comes to Maine!).
Week 5 – “Coronation” by Lisa Bongean. Those little half square triangles finish at ¾”! They were simple to put together though. I used an old favorite fabric from Jo Morton for this one.
This week’s block is “Sunflower” By Carrie Nelson. Started, but not finished enough for a photo.
Those who read my blog regularly may be shocked by this, but this quilt is screaming to be made in the potholder method. So… stand by and see if I listen to the screams.
