Bee Blessed - March 2013

This month's Bee Blessed block is a Happy Zombie's Funky Wrench block.  I must admit that until Judith suggested this block I hadn't come across this take on the wrench/churn dash block, but I think it looks great and as a bonus, the cutting instructions will yield both the nut and the bolt block which are positive/negative versions of each other.

Nut block
Mmmmm - I like this orange/purple combination.

Bolt block

Bee Blessed plans to contribute a quilt once again this year to the Siblings Together project and these blocks will be used for that purpose.  Consequently, this month we are making them up in white solid and bright colours.  If you fancy a go, please check out the Happy Zombie instructions.  We are making the 12" block.

Just a wee note: To yield the half square triangles for this block,  the 4 7/8" blocks should be matched one white to one patterned square right sides together, draw a diagonal across the back of the white square and stitch a quarter of an inch on either side of the pencil line.  Then, cut along the pencil line, open out and voila, two HSTs you can just trim to 4.5".

Hope you might consider making us a nut and bolt pair!

  6. I love, love churn dash blocks - that is what I call these ones. A very old block which looks great and modern too.

  7. I agree with Leanne - tramodernal!

  8. These are brilliant! I love the modern look! Jxo

  9. I really like this block design. I wandered in from Life's Rich Pattern via the Monday Link-up. Now I am a follower so I can find the thread trail back to this quilty goodness ... :) pat
